Allegra LaVi ola Gallery is pleased to present Super Supra Diluvian\, an exhibition of p erformance\, installation\, sculpture and collage by Jennifer Catron and Pa ul Outlaw. 

\n

 As per formers and sculptors\, Catron and Outlaw are known for creating altered an d displaced environments while they take on various roles\, such as  Jen n' Outlaws Fish Fry Truck and Crawfish Boil\, in which the artists created a hydraulically unfolding American Flag food truck serving Southern style far e in the middle of New York City. In Coming Soon\, the duo acted as pilots of a hot air balloon\, flying guests over New York.

\n

In Imeday Imeday Ollarday Icklenay\, Catro n and Outlaw’s bold constructions and outrageous performances resulted in t he transformation of Allegra LaViola Gallery into an elaborate dinner extra vaganza. Guests were seated at a crystal clear table\, and served decadent courses as the table rose 10 feet into the air above the onlookers.  Adorni ng the walls were meticulous reimaginings of Old World Master paintings.

\n

In Super Supra Diluvi an\, Catron and Outlaw take on roles of Artists: magnifying their fame\, pr aising and critiquing themselves as well as the world at large.  The duo’s interest in the shifting perception of reality and notoriety has led them t o question what creativity and talent is\, and what is rewarded.  Gallery v isitors will be shepherded through a gamut of activities\, becoming integra l to the show as they literally become the artwork. The audience as artist will take part in the celebration of themselves in an exciting\, bacchanali an tour of their own success.   While guests are amused\, entertained\, and perhaps unknowingly performing themselves\, Catron and Outlaw will be enga ging in a brave act of ultimate performance painfully gilding themselves as paramount figures within the art world.  As the guests pretend to be the a rtists\, so will the artists pretend to be famous. 

\n

In addition to sculpture\, performance and installation\, Catron and Outlaw have created a series of collages that we ave together mythology\, religion and contemporary culture\, creating a new symbology and drawing parallels between gods and humans while skewering ev eryone's desire for celebrity.  Revolution and upheaval wash away stagnatio n\, creating a new niche in today's overwhelmed society. The show presents itself as an intermediary before drastic change and a liaison to a near fut ure.  Do not miss the spectacular moment\, or you might be left behind.
