Interface is pleased to present Pink Velvet Dress with the Fur Collar, a solo exhibition by Quay Quinn Wolf. Wolf presents objects in ways that evoke memories and the ephemerality of experience. He often uses materials that adorn or augment the body such as hair gels, oils, velvet, satin, clothing, and flowers, to suggest the body and its transience.

For this exhibition, Wolf will present an installation of new sculptures exploring his relationship to his grandmother and reflecting on her relationship to 1950's cinema, specifically, Douglas Sirk’s Imitation of Life (1959), which he remembers watching with her.

Sirk’s film is a tale of two single mothers, one white, and the other black. Wolf has memories of his grandmother’s comments during the film as she would imagine the black domestic characters adorned in the opulent fabrics the white female characters wore.

The works consider Wolf's grandmother’s aspiration to own and wear the luxury items she saw white Hollywood movie stars wear. As such, they reflect in a very personal way, on class and racial divides that continue today.
