The artist will present a large-scale sculptural installation, her largest and most ambitious to date. Agathe Snow (b. 1980, Corsica) lives and works in NYC and will be present for the opening. Snow’s work has been recently reviewed in the New York Times, Artnet.com, The International Herald Tribune, V Magazine, Paper Magazine, and New York Magazine. In our new first floor exhibition space we present a collaboration between Terence KOH and Bruce LABRUCE: BLAME CANADA. “When this kind of fire starts, it is very hard to put out. The tender boughs of innocence burn first, and the wind rises, and then all goodness is in jeopardy.” – The Log Lady, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me Welcome to an installation of degenerate art consisting of horizontal glory holes, cocks coming down from the ceiling and up from the floor like stalactites and stalagmites. After all, why should glory holes be restricted to the vertical axis? That’s strictly for the birds ˆ and Republican Senators. Combining these two ideas, Blame Canada was born. After all, the US makes a habit of blaming Canada for a variety of nasty things: a porous border, lax immigration policies, Communist tendencies, multiculturalism, gayness (gay marriage is legal in Canada), Celine Dion∑ so why not give them what they want: a scapegoat, a whipping boy, a lapdog, a masochist, a Judas, a boot-licker, a cocksucker, a punk. In fact, why not give them two – Terrence Koh and Bruce LaBruce ˆ two of the biggest faggots this side of Elton John.
