Bjarne Melgaard. Daddies Like You Don't Grow On Palm Trees

Einladung: Bjarne Melgaard. Daddies Like You Don't Grow On Palm Trees. 2015

16.05.2015 - 30.11.2015

Sammlung Friedrichshof, Zurndorf / Österreich

This show is about the failure and synthesis of a sculpture I made some 15 years ago called Light Bulb Man. The genesis of the show was to take that sculpture and simply wash it out into new models of materialization, mixed together with fashion collaborations from BLESS, Eckhaus Latta, Gypsy Sport, Orfi, Miguel Adrover, Scooter LaForge, Dertbag and Babak Radboy as random references to my fashion collection about disappointment and the pleasure attendant to that whole concept. ...

… The exhibition will also include photos, films of photos, and other films and replicate the imagery of the show morphing into something else just done by David Oramas.... The "Bad Daddy" aspect of the whole museum context also takes into consideration and contextualizes the fact that I am 48 and my lover is 21 and with all the different mechanics inherent in that attraction. It’s also a show based of seduction and intrigue along matters of age and time, themes that were fundamental to the original Light Bulb Man. The balance of the show will feature an improvised pop-up shop, soundtracks, and new paintings that will infiltrate the permanent collection of the Sammlung Friedrichshof.
