Galen Boone

Windgate Fellowship

2019

Statement: In my uneasy camp fantasies, I counter the myth of binary gender by offering my own panoply of sybaritic gods, adorning androgynes in strange jewels—anatomical armor, metal pubic hair, enameled nipples spilling drops of bone “milk”—and posing them in an alternate jungle of Eden. Fellowship Plans: This summer I plan to tour major collections of ancient art in at least six cities, studying early ritual objects, regalia and statuary in Athens, Turin, Berlin, Copenhagen, London and New York City. I will then spend two weeks learning ancient goldsmithing techniques at Jewelry Arts Inc, splitting my time between the studio and the library at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World in Manhattan. I plan to end 2019 with three months enrolled at a silversmithing school in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
