Mixed Greens is thrilled to announce their third solo show with Alessandra Exposito. This exhibition will feature a new series of narrative sculptures, including a life-sized horse skeleton.
Exposito has a long-standing fascination with trophy animals and mounted game. Instead of using traditional deer or elk in her work, she chooses farm animals and beloved pets-such as chickens or cats-that lack associations with rugged masculinity. Exposito uses paint, rhinestones, studs and sculpted antlers to elevate their skulls into powerful fetish objects. For this exhibition, she focuses solely on the horse, an animal with complicated and opposing associations: domesticated and wild, leisure and work, the object of affection of both cowboys and little girls.
