Four Clown

Clowns aren’t just for kiddies or terrifying cinematic fables anymore—no, clowns of the 21st century engage in graphic violence, simulated sexual acts and “other wanton behavior.” Long maligned by society because no matter how nice or cute they tried to be, they made our collective skin crawl, clowns take on a new form in Jeremy Aluma’s show, and Sad, Mischievous, Angry and Nervous have decided to stop, er, clowning around and finally give us what we want: warped, atrocious reflections of ourselves. They also make you laugh (perhaps through your shrieking), as they reminisce on their tragic pasts, but the jury’s still out on whether this mimicking of human horrors will finally turn that sad clown frown upside down. Keep us posted.
