"Poison Apple” at East Hampton Shed

Kelly Akashi * Larissa Lockshin * Mindy Rose Schwartz

Reception Saturday, February 25th
through March 25th, 2017

We all know the girl whose foot fit the slipper,

The woman doomed to eternal sleep, until her perfect man should come to save her

A bed of roses, long hair to climb up the tower where she is a prisoner

I have felt I was supposed to be captive forever, in my father’s home and then in my husband’s

Treasures in fairy tales, grand prizes in game shows

Presented to you by a silent, beaming blonde

She feels lucky to have someone to serve at all,

The wolf is disguised as your grandmother
