SOHO20 Chelsea presents “Without Irreverence,” new ceramic sculpture by Monica Bock. In To the Light House, Virginia Woolf suggests that, “A mother and child may be reduced to a shadow without irreverence.” Woolf’s novel of reconciliation, built on memories of familial loss and regeneration, is the initial inspiration for Monica Bock’s recent sculptural work using hand-altered glazed porcelain slip castings of a mother-daughter pair of early-twentieth century style dollhouse figures. Striking poses based on iconic temple acrobats, sky goddesses and divas, or succumbing to the weight of their own skins, Bock’s mothers and daughters dance en masse and gather in small conversations across the gallery walls, at once bound by and set free from the consequences of their intimacy.
