Polynesian Opening

Swampspace Gallery

* Vaikai *

Tiki Sentiment in the Summer of Kitsch

Opens August 13th 7-11 pm
Design District Art Walk

VaiKai ( kitsch for vacation ) is focused on the aesthetics of sentimentality for the Polynesian protoplasts know as Tiki and Marikoriko. Like Adam and Eve and their biblical mythological quest for knowledge, these iconic creatures of the South Pacific serve as original reminders of our long lasting yet uncertain relationship with Prometheus the greek god who stole fire from Gawd almighty and gave it to us mortals.
