SELF SURVEILLANCE - 12/15/2017- 1/5/2018 - All work is for sale, price upon request.
A joint show featuring work from Kenosha Drucker and Chelsi Rossi (pictured above). In Self Surveillance, Kenosha presents work involving screen-printing, drawing, collage, sculpture and installation. In this project she works heavily with her own image, which lends the work a personal tone, and allows her an avenue for self exploration and a space to practice self love. The work includes abstraction of the figure and scenes of imagined spaces and landscapes; scenes which reflect reality but are certainly “other”. By introducing her image into these imagined spaces, Kenosha explores ideas of escapism, representing herself as a character in an imagined world that mirrors our own. An important theme in Kenosha’s art practice is the effort to both explore and escape her reality through art-making.
Self Surveillance explored the impact of living under the male gaze, the performative quality a woman’s existence assumes when she is aware of this gaze, and the double consciousness that results.
