Alona Kagan Gallery is pleased to announce a group exhibition organized by Independent Curator Anat Ebgi titled “If You’re Feeling Sinister”. "If You're Feeling Sinister", a song and album title by Scottish collaborative band "Belle & Sebastian", is the inspiration for this group show.

The artwork exhibited will attempt to parallel this band's musical techniques: their melodies are lilting and infectious; the delicate voice of the lead singer resonates as sad and painfully sincere while his humorous lyrics are startling and sardonic. The seemingly happy-go-lucky pop sound of their music radically contrasts with the profoundly real and poignantly dark lyrics. Like "Belle & Sebastian", the artwork concerns itself with interweaving beauty and seduction with an underbelly of menace and dark humor.

Exhibition: September 15 - October 15, 2005
Gallery hours: Tues-Sat 10am - 6pm
