Honey Ramka is pleased to present Or Bust, an exhibition featuring sculpture by Bill Adams, Paul Bergeron, Carl D’Alvia, Elizabeth Ferry, Volker Hüller, Roxanne Jackson, Hein Koh, Rebecca Morgan, Sarah Peters, Janice Sloane, Derek Weisberg, Michael Wetzel, Ana Wieder-Blank, and Nick van Woert.
Or Bust is a selection of works that adopt the bust as form. Arrayed as an antiquities gallery, the exhibition is also a survey of contemporary portrait sculpture. Amongst a platoon of aliens, clones, and effigies are, as in classical salons, pedestaled patricians, goddesses, and vessels. At turns erotic, grotesque, comedic, and fantastical, the assembled works exemplify the mutability and mutation of an ancient, enduring art form.
