Marilyn Minter Gargles With Mercury

11.10.11 Marina Galperina

Marilyn Minter has updated her sudsy porn and slurping mouth-hole motifs for her first show of new work at Salon 94, two years in the making. She’s still exploring pleasure in splashing, sloshing, decadently dirty forms… Now with more babies!

Through photography, Fantom slow motion video art and ten foot tall enamel on metal paintings, the New York artist introduces toddlers dripping and wallowing in puddles of metallic liquid. Everything dark. Everything silver. More dribbling glass plates. More happy mouths. Marilyn Minter, Oct 28 – Dec 4, Salon 94, NYC
