November 1 – December 20, 2008

Opening Reception: Saturday November 1, 2008 6pm-8pm

Taylor De Cordoba is pleased to present The Searchers, the West coast debut of a new series of photographs by the collaborative team of Sasha Bezzubov and Jessica Sucher. The exhibition will run from November 1 – December 20, 2008. The gallery will host an opening reception for the artists on Saturday, November 1 from 6pm-8pm.

The Searchers
is a series of large-scale photographs examining Western spiritual tourism in India. Bezzubov and Sucher investigate the magnetic pull of India’s rich religious history and the utopian communities that cater to Western seekers. While exploring yoga centers, meditation retreats and ashrams, the artists straddle the line between observers and participants. The project results in distinct groupings: spatially astounding interiors, bizarre landscapes, and portraits of those who simultaneously appear both lost and found. The connecting thread is the visual strangeness and cultural collisions inherent in this phenomenon. This series includes photographs taken at the Osho Meditation Resort in Pune and the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Dhanwantari Ashram in Nayyar Dam, Kerala.

With The Searchers, the artists build on themes explored in their previous bodies of work, specifically Expats and Natives (Bezzubov and Sucher) and The Gringo Project (Bezzubov). These previous projects center around young Western travelers exploring developing countries and how the relationship to one’s host country relates to larger issues of race, class, and identity.

New York-based Sasha Bezzubov and Jessica Sucher have been collaborating since 2002. In 2006, they spent a year in India on a Fulbright Scholarship Award for their project, The Searchers. Their work has previously been exhibited in Miami, Los Angeles, New York, The Netherlands.

Frohawk Two Feathers review in Los Angeles Times

Los Angeles Times
Friday February 29, 2008

by Holly Myers
A chapter from colonial times

"In the Court of the Crimson King" is Frohawk Two Feathers' second solo show at Taylor de Cordoba and the second chapter of an epic saga whose details are difficult to keep straight. They're scrawled on a long, scroll-like sheet posted to a gallery wall for those who want to give it a try. But the themes are all too familiar: power, war, colonialism, imperialism and the lure of global trade.

The hero is one Nancy of Gonaives, heir to the fictional kingdom of Frengland, who has embarked on a mission to avenge his father's death and reclaim the throne from his villainous uncle, Lord William (a.k.a. King Billy). Haiti figures in the story in some way, as do the sugar trade, the Inuit people, a pope and a certain pink sperm whale, hunted with Ahab-like obsession by the ill-fated King L'Oreal.

The bulk of the story is told through drawings and paintings that mimic the conventions of colonial-era genres -- particularly portraiture -- while remaining wonderfully fresh and strange. The project is a peculiar one that manages to balance a number of unlikely qualities -- lighthearted and earnest, endearing and unsettling, humorous and scathingly critical.

Two Feathers, who goes by a number of different pseudonyms, seems to have a lot going on: He has several musical projects underway and will perform at the gallery Saturday as Kent Cyclone. The full scope may take some time to unfold, but the promise is striking.
