Mass Ornament: Pleasure, Play, and What Lies Beneath, cur. Alison M. Gingeras, South Etna Gallery, Montauk, New York, 2020
Seven years out from studying furniture design at the Rhode Island School of Design, Katie Stout creates works that she describes as ‘Naive Pop’. Her digital exhibition encourages onlookers to consider how deranged and demented everyday life is – for instance, her coveted series, Girl Lamps, displays the wonders of different body physiques. It conveys a dark irony while having a childlike innocence to its design.
