NANCY DAVIDSON with Ashley McNelis
Nancy Davidson's large-scale, colorful, biomorphic inflatables unapologetically embody and destabilize pop culture tropes through humor, absurdity, and the grotesque. From April 30 through May 29, Lord Ludd in Philadelphia will present a solo exhibition of Davidson’s work, Ridin’ High, which will include sculptures from the nineties and new sculptures that parody themes of power and privilege. Davidson met with Ashley McNelis at her Tribeca studio to discuss her work, as well as Eva Hesse, modern feminism, and doing what you want, when you want.
