Jennie Ottinger’s work attempts to capture that moment immediately before or after a pivotal event, the tension in that fleeting period of silence and stillness. The unfinished quality lends to the uneasy stillness by making them seem interrupted, as if something sudden and significant occurred.

Ottinger is currently going through a princess phase. She is collecting stories of women who were maligned by history which applies to basically any high-profile woman throughout time. Princesses were pawns used to build dynastic power and in many cases, they were scapegoats, in Marie Antoinette’s case, for all the poverty in all of France and also the downfall of the French monarchy. This applies not just to princesses but any strong woman with proximity to power, like Yoko Ono, Meghan Markel, Anne Boleyn, like Maria Antonia Josepha Johanna who never said “Let them eat cake” and never commissioned a $15 Million (in our current valuation) necklace then refused to pay, and never abused her children. She did what she was bred to do: have babies and look fabulous.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through May 14.
