“Did they consider it could be a tree? A dandelion? A spade? I mean, how do they know?”
“I don’t know, the archaeologists seem confident. Carbon dating proves it to be about 37,000 years old.”
“So that’s the oldest vagina ever found?”
“Supposedly. I think that’s a nimbus.”
“I can see that. Where did they find it?”
“On the ceiling.”
“The ceiling of the cave?”
“Yeah. The researcher said, “it’s quotidian art, it’s everyday art…that it’s over their heads as they’re doing every day, banal sorts of things.””
“So then, it’s a vagina with a nimbus.”
“Yeah, on the ceiling.”
Amber Renaye and Sarah Ann Weber are artists and writers whose friendship formed in 2013 when both attended the Ox-bow School of Art as Joan Mitchell grant recipients. Amber in New York, Sarah in Los Angeles, the two have worked collaboratively on this show, embedding the intimacy of their friendship with the specificities of their work.
Tiger Strikes Asteroid is a network of artist-run spaces with locations in Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Each space is independently operated and focuses on presenting a varied program of emerging and mid-career artists. Our goal is to collectively bring people together, expand connections and build community through artist-initiated exhibitions, projects, and curatorial opportunities. We seek to further empower the artist’s role beyond that of studio practitioner to include the roles of curator, critic, and community developer; and to act as an alternate model to the conventions of the current commercial art market. Tiger Strikes Asteroid is a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization.
