HOLLYWOOD LIGHTS UP WITH FULL SPECTRUM SCULPTURE BY ERIKA VOGT.

1

CITIPHILE Lisa Overduin’s Sunset Boulevard gallery is a guiding voice in LA’s contemporary art space; since opening its doors nearly 10 years ago, everyone from Merlin Carpenter to Sergei Tcherepnin has exhibited works there. Though many of its shows feature a myriad of artists, Overduin opted for two solo exhibitions this fall: the first and current being LA artist Erika Vogt’s Eros Island: Knives Please Rise. The local artist’s new series is comprised of extra-large sculptural works based on popular knives throughout history including the Paleolithic era, Han Dynasty, Incan period, 19th century surgical tools and contemporary weaponry. Of course, Vogt, who is celebrated for her feminist and queer works, hasn’t painted the collection of pieces in punchy hues like hot pink and lemon yellow for no reason— each knife gets its color from symbols used in political protests by groups such as “Code Pink” or by publications such as The New Yorker and its recent Trump rally cartoon. Vogt’s previous work has hung in such esteemed institutions as The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney, Centre Pompidou and The Hammer so this is an especially exciting exhibit for Overduin. The show runs through October 22nd, after which the gallery will welcome mixed media artist Oliver Payne for his solo exhibition opening in November.
