Eros Island: Knives Please Rise
Catalog that accompanied Erika Vogt’s exhibit, “Eros Island: Knives Please Rise” at Overduin & Co. in Los Angeles. The exhibition featured a new group of sculptural works which were initially conceived as props for a performance commissioned by Performa at the Roulette Theater in New York. For this exhibition, Vogt produced a group of large-scale leaning, hanging and freestanding sculptures based on a collection of knife iconography culled from a range of sources and historical periods – Paleolithic, Han Dynasty, Incan, Egyptian Middle Kingdom, Peruvian, 19th century surgical tools, as well as contemporary weaponry.
