Mary Sue Presents Mary Goes Round at Galerie Rabouan Moussion

Amber Lauletta writing for VINGT Paris

MarysueEnter the candy-cane world of Mary Sue at Galerie Rabouan-Moussion and you'll find a self-infantilized artist who wants to ride the rodeo! As her myth goes, “she is off for five minutes, which count for a lot at that age. Those five minutes of happiness for which she's been waiting for at least a lifetime!”

Her “Jolly jumper, hung like a stallion” installation comes in the form of shiny hard plastic miniature pony figurines who have been cleanly impaled (mid-carousel gesture) by the cutest candy-cane poles that secure the ponies from floor to ceiling.

Accompanying the innocent pony carnage are photos of the artist herself suffering the same pleasurable fate. Some other pleasurable fates include a photo series featuring her legs tangled in a colorful and chaotic Kinbaku elastic-band mess, along with video footage of fly swatting and rodeo riding.

Saddle up and head on over to the Rabouan-Moussion for some twisted eye-candy while it lasts.  If need more, check out Vraoum! at Le Maison Rouge whose collective also features Mary Sue now through September 2009.

EDITOR'S NOTE: 'MARY GOES ROUND; SHOW EXTENDED - Ongoing now through July 20th.
