Arielle Falk: Lego My Ego at LZ Project Space

Arielle Falk: Lego My Ego
July 29 – August 21, 2010
Reception: July 30, 7 - 9 pm
LZ Project Space
164 Suffolk Street
btw Stanton & Houston Sts.

LZ Project Space is pleased to present Lego My Ego, the first solo exhibition of work by Arielle Falk. In this show, Falk introduces sculptures and photographs that continue her exploration of relationships between human (subject) and object. This relationship has been a recurring theme in her video work.

“I can feel myself under the gaze of someone whose eyes I do not see, not even discern.” - Jacques Lacan, Seminar One

Falk presents a series of handmade sculptural objects, SUNGLASSES FOR THE FACE, which are designed to obscure the features of one’s face, and therefore, the identity and ego (self) of the wearer. They serve to defend against a double gaze; the nonspecific, generalized gaze of the other and the self-conscious, inward directed gaze of the ideal-ego (one’s image of their perfect self) as defined by Freud and Lacan.
