Jes Fan: Ot(her)
|When||9 Dec 2015 - 29 Jan 2016|
|Where||Sarah Doyle Gallery, Brown University
26 Benevolent St
Providence, RI 02912
Opening Reception: Thursday, December 10, 6-8pm
“Ot(her)” is an inquiry into other-ness, and in particular the aspects of how marginal identities are often assimilated through the rhetoric of the exotic and/or the erotic. Jes Fan relies on appropriating objects categorized as ethnic or feminine; to question the structures that classified them as such. In morphing the manufactured purpose of these objects, her work proposes a utopic ideal, in which objects are capable of objecting the status quo.
