Opening: June 25, 6 p.m.
Leslie-Lohman Prince St. Project Space (127-B Prince St.)
The artist explores our relationship to money, power, and fragility through a selection of symbols and pushes them forward through props and rephotography. Using themes of luxury and decadence as a starting point, Geana displays such objects as a one-hundred dollar bill, fake currency, fake diamonds, a skull, a gold gun, shackles, a pitchfork, and a dildo. These objects, created by the artist, are paired with a selection of images of nubile unclad men. In stark contrast to the artist’s commercial work, faces will be hidden or cut off.
