you gotta keep your head up but you can let your hair down
07 – 25 August, 2014

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

A cheap flapper costume, suddenly on-trend.

A dress that exaggerates the motion of the wearer.

Maps the trajectory of a night, a year, a decade, a career.

Out of the car and onto the floor.


A metallic burst that triggers a fury of flashes.

One of the problems with optical triggering is that in modern digital cameras a built-in flash releases one or more 'pre-flashes'. Many optical slave units will respond to the pre-flash, thus firing the slave flash too early.

While she was swiftly helped back on to her feet by a security guard, he wasn't quick enough to stop the event's eagle-eyed photographers from snapping away as she gasped in horror at the fumble.  

Of course, this certainly isn't the first time the star has suffered an embarrassing public tumble.

Yes. Of course. Certainly.

A conveniently mirrored side table borrowed from a newly rehabilitated friend.

A conspicuously long line outside a small bathroom. “You know, cocaine can be done anywhere in this apartment.”

Stainless steel rope stanchion, flat base, ball top, blue velvet rope.

An exhausted skyscraper, another leggy stunner looking worse for wear.

55 GANSEVOORT is pleased to announce the opening of You gotta keep your head up but you can let your hair down, a solo exhibition of new sculpture by Kayode Ojo. The show will be on view from August 7th through August 24th, at the gallery’s storefront location.

Kayode Ojo was born in Cookeville, TN and received a BFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts.

The exhibitions at 55 Gansevoort are entirely visible, at all hours, by peering through the windowed doors.
