Seidel City will host open gallery hours for our current exhibition, Subject & Surface, with artist Kellye Eisworth in attendance.
In Subject & Surface, artists Kellye Eisworth and Forrest Lotterhos engage with the body as a site of exploration. The artists draw on their own personal histories to create two distinct bodies of work investigating concepts of identity, agency, and vulnerability. In his short film phoria, Lotterhos draws from his experience as a trans man to offer an intimate look into the complex relationship between the body and the self through candid conversations with members of the trans community. Informed by her experience as a woman with prominent, visible scars, Eisworth’s Topographies of Pain is a series of photographs featuring “female” subjects who have been physically marked by their past while questioning the body’s role in the construction and performance of identity and gender. In Subject & Surface, these two intricate narratives intersect and diverge to form a dialogue that deepens the complexity and amplifies the resonance of both.
Subject & Surface will be on view March 15th - May 2nd, 2019.
