LAY IN THE REINS
BELLWETHER is pleased to announce Alyssa Pheobus's first solo show, LAY IN THE REINS. The exhibition features a group of large-scale text drawings that excavate the lyrics of love songs and other fragments of language through an elaborate process of performative inscription. Positioning her disciplined and labor-intensive drawing practice as an analog to other subjective performances of text, Pheobus both "covers" and "samples" in an attempt to engage her source material critically and libidinally.
