About Stephanie Hirsch, KING KONG was a WOMAN

KING KONG was a WOMAN is a powerful solo exhibition of new sculptures by Stephanie Hirsch. Known for her adept use of typically “feminine” processes such as embroidery and beading, Stephanie Hirsch expands on the concept of femininity to express an internal strength of the soul. At the core of this body of work is Hirsch’s belief that the only way to heal and unite humanity is to first focus inward and heal ourselves. Individual power develops when one can escape the fears, behaviors, and perceived limitations put in place by societal expectations. For Hirsch, it is not a physical battle, but a spiritual one.

The notion of King Kong immediately conjures up an image of insurmountable size and strength. Hirsch’s work challenges the physicality King Kong represents and the qualities embodied by ascribing them to a feminine power. Her references to the Greek goddesses symbolize a duality of beauty and strength which is echoed in her practice of laborious hand-embroidery and beading. The resulting works are aesthetically intricate but also resolutely resilient. Stephanie Hirsch’s work will be on view in a special pop-up exhibition at 319 Bowery from April 6th through April 27th.

Stephanie Hirsch is a New York-based artist whose conceptual works explore themes of self-transformation and awareness. Stitching together words and imagery representing notions of strength, courage, humanity, and renewal, Hirsch questions and repositions everyday phrases. She has exhibited with numerous galleries and museums, has participated in various art fairs, and is part of several permanent collections such as the Newcomb Museum at Tulane University, and the Cornell Art Museum in Delray Beach, Florida
