September 4th – September 25th

The Vida Archive is a group exhibition curated by Samantha Sutcliffe which features the work of Vodka Vida, Rachel Wark, Alexey Yurenev, Samantha Sutcliffe and Arthur Arbit.

The Vida Archive invites you to step into the mental state of a thirteen year old Catholic school girl from the suburbs of New Jersey who suffers from borderline personality disorder. The gallery space will mimic Vodka’s teenage bedroom using original pieces from her archive including hand-written poems, posters and pencil drawings of her highschool enemies and unedited writing from her published art books RAGING BULL (2019), YOU NEED DISCIPLINE (2020), YAZ CAR SUICIDE (2020) and SAD SARAH (2020). Shadow box sculptures inspired by church decorations created by Arthur Arbit, an immersive kaleidoscope installation by Rachel Wark and black and white silver gelatin prints of Vodka’s bedroom taken by Samantha Sutcliffe will be displayed on the surrounding walls. Vodka’s favorite photographer Alexey Yurenev will show for the first time his archive of the Night Wolves, a Russian motorcycle club he followed around between 2015 – 2017.

Limited edition books will be for sale the night of the opening all proceeds will go to Open Path Psychotherapy Collective.
