Union Gallery Vitrine Project
Self(ish), Curated by Leyla Chisamore | May 22 - September 14, 2018

The Vitrine is located just outside the gallery in the Stauffer Library foyer. Visit at any time of the day.

Self(ish) examines the situation of self and processes of developing an embodied knowledge, mediated through external relationships. How do we find ourselves? Where do we find ourselves? Jack Halberstam describes identity as something produced through/by a “condition of broken negotiations with the world, a condition in which others merely set off the self-shattering mechanism of masochistic jouissance”. It is in intimacy, love, and their inevitable loss through which we negotiate identity. Divided into two processes – genealogy and partnership – Self(ish) traces familial connection, intimacy, and relationships through paralleling arcs of degradation and personal growth.
