Mindy Rose Schwartz

Alien Head Keychains


February 28, 2017 – March 19, 2017

Mindy Rose Schwartz presents ALIEN HEAD KEYCHAINS (2001-2002), a series of small sculptures of aliens (and alien farm animals), cast in shiny polished bronze and secured with lanyards to a variety of rings, keys, and occasional pieces of bric-a-brac. Like the conflicting aesthetic impulses that distinguish much of her work (cute but horrific, elegant whilst tacky, profound yet mundane), Schwartz’s aliens are held taut from multiple points of tension and dangle heavily with the weight of gravity.
