Featured works on Exhibition A
Maybe you read about Elle Muliarchyk’s “Lips of Babel” project last year in T Magazine. It’s an intoxicatingly funny video of fifty models’ lips reciting tongue twisters in their native language. The combination of sexy and strange is something of a specialty for this gueriila-style photographer who spent her formative years in Vietnam and the Czech Republic. Our favorite body of work is a portfolio she conceived with curator Neville Wakefield where Elle accessorized saintly statues in churches and synagogues to make these holy and ancient icons feel very, very present. The photographs were later displayed as a solo exhibition at Milk Gallery in 2009. On the editorial side, Elle is a currently a contributor to V and W magazines as well as The New York Times.
