EXIST@METRO: Friday Night June 2014 Documentation Eleanor Jackson

Documentation Photographs from Alan Warren.

Eleanor Jackson will be presenting an interactive installation, Now You See Me.
Taking a titular cue from Karolina Bregula’s project Let them see us, which is emblematic of ongoing themes of representation and visibility in contemporary queer visual art, the piece takes a deliberate step towards “unseeing”, the obscured or misinterpreted view.
In doing so, it asks – with sorrow rather than judgement – if the rainbow visibility of Pride movements and temporary media luminosity have contributed as much to creating a society of acceptance as we may like to imagine

    Eleanor’s work was so beautiful. I didn’t know what to expect – though I liked the surprise that we had to be blindfolded to experience this work. And, usually I get weary of the ways some gay rights & queer politics gets bandied around. But this piece was presented with true sensitivity & compassion. Very moving. Thank you Eleanor.

    Reblogged this on eleanor j jackson and commented:
    And don’t forget that the incredible crew at Exist are constantly putting on new work, engaging with diverse audiences and generally sharing incredible live art. This is a nice friendly post about me, but I post as much to send you in their direction, as to toot my own trumpet.

      Yeah, Thanks. I agree. Exist creates awesome opportunities.

    Thank you Sharmila for coming to experience it – I too have some “pride fatigue”, so thank you for coming with the piece and its way of approaching these events and the people that the stories relate to. I really appreciated everyone’s willingness and openness.
