Eva Polzer’s ✨just girlie things✨ at Akron Soul Train
Eva Polzer’s ✨just girlie things✨ Presents Sculptures in Conversation with Girlhood Trauma and Gendered Stereotypes Using Domestic Pet Tropes: Submissive Dogs vs. Mysterious Cats. On view at Akron Soul Train May 3-June 10.
In just girlie things, Eva Polzer explores the complicated patriarchal “nuturing” of femininity and how it encourages girls and women to simultaneously hate and sexualize their bodies. Polzer creates sculptures inspired by the Borzoi dog and the Sphynx cat to discuss the normalization of blind devotion, unwanted attention, and the desire to retain some kind of power through avoidance.
Eva Polzer will be showcased in the CapSOUL gallery from May 3 – June 10, 2023.
About the Artist Eva Polzer:
Eva Polzer is committed to a relationship with clay, the beauty of discomfort, and the creation of animal; breathing figures meant to be projected onto, fawned over, and feared for. Their bodies speak, primal and honest, a non-verbal language observed fluently. Polzer uses them as a vehicle to unpack and attempt to understand both intrapersonal and interpersonal dis/connection and dis/regulation, and to communicate concerns with their own internal and external world.
