Jaxson Arnold - Katie Rauth
April 11th - May 4th, 2019
Artist Talk: May 4th, 2-4 PM, moderated by Danny Orendorff
In Simultaneous Invention, Spillway member Jaxson Arnold invites Katie Rauth to collaborate on a two-person exhibition which speaks to their own gendered experiences, reflecting on how to navigate the way in which one is seen, whether it’s by others or one’s self.
Jaxson Arnold’s multimedia-works aim to narrow the gap between their private & public identity by challenging their comfort with public gendered experiences. They often revisit childhood recollections of shame and create new memories using retrospection and assurance as a guide.
Katie Rauth creates miniatures of a larger project, intimate vanity spaces for dramatic self indulgence and radical narcissism. Using the institutions of camp and glamour, her work explores the intersectional fat/queer experience, investigating fat femininity and the subversive potential of material excess.
