Re/Iterative Form, Drawing from the abstracted detritus of daily life—packaging materials, prefab furniture and storage components, elements of abandoned toys, and more “organic” matter--both familiar and new architectural elements, objects, imagery, and sculptural forms will appear and be reconfigured as an iterative and emergent constellation. This constellated space will then, over the course of the residency, be punctuated by performative events such as site-responsive readings and music.

The At A Distance project was originally conceived as a way of connecting the arts community in Wichita, Kansas to a variety of contemporary art practices from other parts of the world. The artist A. P. Vague, then faculty at Wichita State University, created the first iteration of this exhibition in 2017, which featured work by artists from six different countries, none of whom had previously exhibited in Kansas.

My work is an immersion in mourning research. Two-years ago when my father and husband died within days of each other, the fundamental drives of my practice changed radically. Raised in a culture where the delicate and complicated process of mourning was rushed, clearing the way to move on or “get back to normal”, this stoic posturing left no room for ritual or its importance in healing the complex emotional experience of grief.
