Dès la semaine prochaine, Catherine Lam installera

Il y aura toujours des volumes en papier mâché et des encres,
mais tout ça enfeuillé et énigmatique, féminin et coloré !

La traversée commencera le 2 juillet par une collation forestière
dès 18h30 et durera jusqu’au 17 juillet si les esprits le veulent.
Venez nombreux rencontrer la chouette endormie et l’ours frappeur….

From next week, Catherine Lam will settle
A forest in The Gallery Bletterie,
And as it is necessary a deep, deep forest will welcome you as you’ll enter the gallery, with ink drawings and Papier-mâché sculptures. her works are enigmatic, feminines and colored!

The crossing will begin July 2nd with a forest meal
From 6:30 pm and will last until July 17th if the spirits will want it.
Come numerous to meet the sleepy owl and the bear striker…

Dans la forêt des souliers rouges /// In the forest of the red shoes

Cell63 artgallery is glad to present:


a solo exhibition by NICOZ BALBOA

4 June – 30 July

Vernissage Friday 4th July 19h00-22h30

performances by:
THE SEWING MACHINE (a sweet body performance)
3BARBARAE (improvisation dance)
FENIA KOTSOPOULOU, MARIELLA CELIA & TBGUANDA (improvisation dance & music)


In Nicoz Balboa’s Illustrations there are living girlies with red airs, vintage-style boots and balloon-sleeved dresses and skirts and SM leather masks. This Girlies are mysterious, silent and quite often good friends with anthropomorphic animals, also very silent. Nicoz likes to create a world which doesn’t exist, but in which she would like to live in..and also many of us. She imagines herself travelling on the back of a magic three-eyed white bear or with a deer of the Enchanted Forest, she sees these Girlies, dressed like a bunch of SadoMaso Alices in Wonderland going to the King’s ball.

(je reporte le comunique de presse de l’expo “I need your skull” @ la MF Gallery de Brooklyn) )

at MF Gallery: 213 Bond St. Brooklyn, NY
Opening Party: Saturday May 22, 2010
MF Gallery is excited to present our newest show: “I Need Your Skull”, In this show, over 30 international artists were asked to present a piece depicting a human skull… All the money raised from sales of the skull art will be used to build a giant skull on the facade of the MF Gallery building.

Skulls have long been used in art as symbols of mortality, religion, eternal life, rebellion, fear, poison and more. The skulls in “I Need Your Skull” are realized in a variety of different styles and mediums. Photo realistic skulls, gruesome skulls, cartoon skulls, psychedelic skulls, dark skulls and colorful skulls. From morbid to cute, 3D or flat, these skulls are made in a variety of materials from marble to paper; and were created by a group of diverse artists, some who use skulls as the subject matter for their normalwork, and some who were asked to create a skull piece just for this show.

The artists include: Jenny Bird Alcantara, Annie Aube, Nicoz Balboa, Dave Brockie, Candy, Fernando Carpaneda, Gene Coffey, Matt Dickson, Dennis Dread, Kirsten Flaherty, Heather Gargon, Christina Graf, Guicho, Death Head, Scott Holloway, Lance Laurie, Abe Lincoln Jr., Mike Maas, Drew Maillard, Sarah Antoinette Martin, Angie Mason, Dennis McNett, Rodrigo Melo, MCA, Munk 1, Gilbert Oh, Chris Peters, Porkchop, Ed Repka, Lou Rusconi, Frank Russo, John Russo, Martina Secondo Russo, Chad Savage, Anna Semenova, Joe Simko, James Wrona, Genevive Zacconi & More…

Our dream for the new MF Gallery in Brooklyn (A.K.A. The “Fortress MF”) has always been to adorn the facade with a 20 foot 3-D skull. Made of fiberglass or a similar material, it will be reminiscent of an old Spook House ride, and would make The Fortress MF an unmissable Brooklyn Landmark! This is a big project that has been in the planning stages for a long time, but one that we have not yet been able to realize due to time and monetary constraints.

“I Need Your Skull” will help to make MF Gallery’s Giant Skull Project a reality! All of the proceeds from this show will go towards building the giant skull. As a part of this show, we will be revealing concept sketches for the construction of the “Fortress MF Skull” for the very first time!

Please join us for a rock n roll Opening Party on Saturday May 22, from 7 to 10 pm. Many of the artists will be present, and refreshments will be served. Admission is free and open to all ages. The art in “I Need Your Skull” will be on view until June 20, 2010 and will also available for viewing and purchasing online at: Come buy some skull art and help us build our giant skull… We Need Your Skull!!!
