rebecca ashley: corps de clone


My friend Rebecca and I have known each other since our sons were in preschool together and have spent many afternoons witnessing them battle in the park. Currently she is exhibiting her photography at a local yogurt shop, Culture. I really loved her story of how the work came to be, especially since I can imagine it so clearly. 


This is excerpted from her write up of the show:

"One night as I watched my son engage in a world-altering battle with his action figures, I teasingly grabbed one of his heroes and contorted him into an arabesque. In one moment my past as a dancer and choreographer confronted his present. Our response? To laugh and try another pose. Could he do a grande plié? A tendue?..."


The work in this exhibit brings Rebecca's worlds of dance, parenting, and photography together - if you are in Brooklyn please stop by Culture and see her show. If you are a fan of dance, or a parent of a clone obsessed child, you might even decide to buy a piece! You can also see Rebecca's work on her website here.
