Karleen Hesselbacher Senior Honors Thesis Exhibition

Opening Reception Friday, March 28, 2014, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

 

Karleen Hesselbacher's projections, moving video paintings, question the representation of conventions of sexuality surrounding the contemporary woman. Traditionally, corsets are used to change the appearance of a woman's body and, in the past,  represented a symbol of the woman who fits the norms of society.  In today’s world, the corset can symbolize overt sexuality or what is commonly known as a kink/fetish/BDSM. The artist uses superimposed, manipulated video clips of a chorus line to project onto a mannequin torso. The secondary projection of white noise will be interrupted by the silhouettes of the viewer, forming another visual layer in the work. Static is symbolic of a failed signal giving the piece a sense of control, lost.
