Preview: Casey Curran’s “Dissymmetry” at Roq la Rue
For his solo show “Dissymmetry,” opening February 8 at Roq la Rue, Casey Curran will present a series of captivatingly delicate kinetic sculptures. These mixed-media works are baroque in their level of detail; their branch-like ornaments and stylized interpretation of organic forms allude to the high art of the Renaissance. These sculptures can be activated with a manual crank. When put into motion, unexpected and sometimes raunchy details are revealed as porcelain doll limbs and eerie, child-like characters add a surreal dimension to the work. Take a look at our preview of the show courtesy of Roq la Rue and watch some videos of the sculptures in action after the jump.
