[April 4 2024]

“Her Labyrinth” an exhibition by Evangeline AdaLioryn at Sebastian Gladstone, on view until April 27th

Delving into themes of memory, identity, and lost girlhood; AdaLioryn describes the common feelings among many trans women as alienation from certain normative life experiences and sorrow over what was denied in youth. A procession of blind animals wrapped in intricate sigils act as guides through the exhibition. Gathering inspiration from early twentieth century Art Nouveau craft houses, AdaLioryn prioritized ornate and delicate beauty in her carefully developed symbolic language. The journey through Her Labyrinth terminates in the discovery of oneself and healing contact with a phantom past.
