The story of Scheherazade is an ancient one that is most often romanticized with images of faraway lands, swashbuckling tales, and an epic musical score by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. honeyjones’ exhibition Vox Scheherazade is a tribute to the legendary young woman herself: not the tales, not the culture, not even the music, lest she be obscured by rose-colored lenses. Our heroine Scheherazade is a young woman who subverts her own death at the hands of a murderous king by regaling him with irresistible tales.
During this month of December, our gallery will be lit within, beckoning you to bear witness and consider work in keeping with our namesake: a young woman in peril who, through sheer force of will, guile, and wit, is able to save her own life and the lives of many women who would have perished after her. The story is more than a legend. Rimsky-Korsakov’s piercingly beautiful musical score is the oft-associated ambience for this dramatic scenario in which the symbolic power of Scheherazade is personified in the voice of the violin. The true power lies within Scheherazade’s own voice, her breath, her desire to live and need to survive. The three artists of this group showing, Anne-Marie Delaunay-Danizio, Loren Doucette, and Barbara Trachtenberg, are displaying artwork that is representative of their own visions and artistries, while also paying evocative homage to the infinitely vast, oft-maligned and spectacular journey of womanhood.
