For Transformer's participation in (e)merge, a new art fair designed to "celebrate galleries, artists, artists' work and the creative process, and to create an energetic environment of collaboration and discovery," we will present new works by DC based artists Erin Boland, Jessica Cebra and Emilia Olsen in a site-specific, hotel bedroom installation.
Each of these artists brings a unique approach to their medium. Boland's drawings and sculptures investigate the dissonance that allows us to explore our anatomies without the physical experience of looking at a dissected human body. Similarly, Cebra's photographic collages disassemble and reassemble glamour shots of women from high-end fashion magazines exploring the aesthetics of decadence and opulence. Olsen's mixed media works on paper revolve around the emotions that girls and women face as they grow out of adolescence and experience flaws, pain, love, sexuality and disappointment.
In addition to the presentation of new works by these three artists, Transformer presented works from our FlatFile program.
Transformer's participation in the (e)merge art fair has been generously sponsored by Comet Ping Pong.
