Weekend is happy to present\, \;Please Release Me\, a solo exhibition of works by \;Molly Jo Shea. For her first gallery show in Los Angeles\, Shea's installation will feature sculp ture\, painting\, video\, and performance based on the art of trapping. Thr ough her research of masculine endeavors such as Pick-Up Artist culture\, h unting\, weaponry\, and animal trapping\, Shea creates an environment that is one part hunting lodge and one part bachelor pad. Shea then inserts hers elf into these fight or flight scenarios via the presentation of field rese arch\, her own hide\, and through  \; the interaction with the traps th emselves. The social aspects of trapping\, who is hunter versus who is prey \, and finding oneself in desperate situations without escape\, are ideas d arkly conveyed within the installation. Armed with deadpan humor\, Shea man ipulates viewers by allowing them to be both predator and prey.
