Artist Talk | Zachary Ayotte and Ted Kerr

Zachary Ayotte’s new work engages in remembrance and rethinking of the gradual disappearance of queer spaces in our city. BAMF is a series of human-scale images of bodies slipping into the aether, realized as black-and-white photographs. As they vanish, they leave behind trails of dust, the black air closing in and swallowing the spaces they leave behind. Ayotte is interested in the relationship of the physical—bodies and the spaces they inhabit—to our conceptual and political landscapes. When these places don’t stay open, how do they live on, and how do they inform our other approaches to community?

Artist Talk | Vicky Sabourin

Spring was a Man in New York is the third chapter of Vicky Sabourin’s ongoing project, Becoming Invisible. Taking over the gallery as her studio for two weeks, Sabourin will conduct a casting call to find the perfect double of a fleeting glimpse of a stranger she encountered in New York years ago—a man who threw pinecones over fences, in a gesture that seemed intentional and performative, but the purpose of which was ultimately unknown–a double for the artist. From this on-site work, Spring was a Man in New York will ultimately result in an installation including 8x10 headshots, records of her interactions with the actors, and larger photographic works.
