David Noonan SOWA 28 February 2003 - 07 April 2003
Foxy Productions presents SOWA, DAVID NOONAN’s first New York solo show. SOWA is an installation of prints, sculpture, and film. SOWA brings a heightened surreality to Noonan’s explorations of horror genre aesthetics. In Sowa: Wallpaper Tile (2002-2003), a gathering of owls appears clone-like on wallpapered prints, creating a baroque and menacing ante-chamber. Owl (2002) is a cast sculpture that could be a film prop, or an otherworldly relic. Sowa (2003), a 16mm film made collaboratively with Simon Trevaks, features a young woman who is slowly drawn into a forest by the magnetic presence of an unidentified force. Drifting in and out of a dream-state, she never reaches her destination.
