Nöle Giulini

sculpture / objekte

..Cross the threshold of Gallery One and you encounter Nöle Giulini’s Wedding Dress, a gender-neutral sculpture constructed from recycled men’s and women’s undergarments. Hardly a patchwork that conjures up the traditional lace-curtain circus, these off-white undies have been through the wringer (they’re hand-me-downs appropriated from friends and thrift shops)…And while it may be OK for us to air–or even wear–our dirty laundry in Madonna-or-Oprah-land, Giulini’s figure takes you under (literally) to deeper, less free-spirited, less–for most of the world’s women–free territory…
