In her first one person show at artMovingProjects Devon Dikeou shows the documentation of “Niney”, a child’s sweater made out of what she thought was lambs wool that she has gone to extreme lengths to keep in her immediate possession since childhood. Following in the tradition of Joseph Kosuth, John Baldessari, and Gorden Matta Clark she uses photography and text to augment the significance of this article of clothing. Notions of fragility, safety and comfort, collide with feelings of fear, vulnerability and voyeurism in the ongoing work that has seen earlier manifestations at Postmasters Gallery, and more recently at the Robin Rule Gallery. The installation will include photographs, documentation and paintings that cite a written time line both sincere and hilarious that builds to form an absurd narrative of intimacy and taboo.
