's "Pussy Power" orchestrated to music!
Pussy Tower, Christina Zwart’s second solo exhibition at the Boston Sculptors Gallery, will be on view April 5 to May 7, 2017. Galvanized by the election results and President Trump’s disparaging comments about women, Zwart presents an 11 foot-high model of Trump Tower in New York City, highlighting one of its most intriguing, yet widely unnoticed features. This monumental piece furthers the social and political nature of Zwart’s work, and posits a profound statement about this unprecedented period in American politics.
Emboldened by the power of the “Pussy Revolution” at the Women’s March on Washington, Zwart envisioned a sculpture incorporating cats. Searching for images of Trump Tower online, she couldn’t believe what she saw: 21 trees perched on terraces on the building’s façade, arranged in the shape of a woman’s crotch. “It was too good,” Zwart said. She couldn’t resist. She built a Styrofoam and mirror board tower, replacing the trees with pink, kinetic, maneki-nekos (beckoning cat talismans). Zwart modified the cat’s arms and paws in order to offer a special “21 gun salute” to President Trump. Photographs of protestors marching in pink pussy hats will line the gallery walls surrounding Pussy Tower.
