There's Something Happening Here...
2–20 October 2017
Anese Projects // New York
Developed during a three month residency at NARS Foundation (Brooklyn) in 2017, there’s something happening here… responds to the political atmosphere of the Charlottesville riots, proposing feminist objects of protection and resistance. Stirrings of protest, retaliation and self-defense emerge through the whimsical and embodied forms. Domestic and industrial materials merge and transform into what could potentially be (benign) weapons, flotation devices, protective gear, or protest devices. These sculptural pieces are active and performative, enabling moments of transformation and action. Physical objects are then extended through performative photographs that imagine alternate behaviours and actions.
