Press Release: May G N: Occlusion Field & Kablusiak: Qiniqtuaq

Thursday, May 23rd, 2019
Esker Foundation is pleased to present in our Project Space location this spring/summer season:

May G N
Occlusion Field
6 May - 21 July
In partnership with Untitled Art Society

Occlusion Field is a singular moment in time and space made of the stuff of trans defense mechanism: tattoos, liquid gender concepts, and hormonally transforming surfaces that come together to speak to an idiosyncrasy, a gestalt, a whole that transcends its constitutive parts.

Upcoming in the Project Space:

29 July - 20 October

Qiniqtuaq (searching/looking) invites viewers to peer through a multi-eyed ghost sheet to witness a looping projection of a video collage screened in front of a piece of oil-stained cardboard. Qiniqtuaq is meant to evoke a dream-like state imaging a hypothetical place and time; a representation of what is felt but not known. Qiniqtuaq invites a presence of nostalgia, spectatorship, and diaspora. (high res images below)
