Perform La Femme Angilee Wilkerson & Jana C. Perez
Opening Reception: Thursday, January 17, 2019 | 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm On View: January 15 – February 28, 2019
Art Room will begin its 2019 exhibition season with a dynamic collaborative photography project that explores the psychological states and cultural interpretation of female identity in Perform La Femme by Angilee Wilkerson and Jana C. Perez, running January 15 to February 28, 2019. Wilkerson and Perez use posture and performance in their work to deconstruct persona and empower the female story. This series uses collaboration between the two artists who enact roles; performing in partnership and using their own middle-aged bodies as models to emphasize the dualities and entanglements in their lives as women. The photographic tableaus Wilkerson and Perez create express a range of environments and atmospheric lighting. With great intention through recurring color palettes, body gesture, and symbolic objects, the artists take on a myriad of enigmatic characters as narratives emerge that are simultaneously Delphic and revealing. The artists would like to thank both The Puffin Foundation and The Department of Visual Arts, Texas Woman’s University for their generous support. Art Room is open to the public and will host an opening reception on January 17, 2019, as well as a closing reception on February 23, 2019.
