392 Broadway

P·P·O·W presents Staircase to the Rose Window, Chiffon Thomas’ first solo exhibition with the gallery. Synthesizing embroidery, collage, drawing, and sculpture, Thomas’ practice contends with the crafted body to examine wider issues of gender, race, and sexuality. Embracing the liminal space between figuration and abstraction, Thomas’ “impossible bodies” forcefully eschew easy classification to serve as vessels for personal memories and collective narratives. Drawing upon childhood memories and his own physical experience of transformation, Thomas’ Staircase to the Rose Window will transport the viewer to a dystopian world that serves as an allegory for the quest for satisfaction in the face of unrelenting longing. This exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue featuring a new essay by New York-based writer and curator Osman Can Yerebakan.
