JBS Reliquarium: The Runner

May 8, 2014

 

 A new rubric on Jelena Behrend Blog.  Mummified memories and real-life magic objects from Jelena's life and Studio.

Floating over a devastated and scorched terrain of ashes and cigarette butts, focused like a brave arrow, always moving, this runner through smoke and fire has been Jelena's companion for the past two decades.  Jelena found this mysterious figurine at a yard sale in Alphabet City, the corner of Avenue B and E6th Street, while searching for fine second-skin leather jackets.  Like a Voodoo doll, this adopted amulet became a cross-dresser and has been changing clothes as well.  Recently she lost her anklets, but is now sporting an exoskeleton of melted baroque rubber.
