Jennifer Thoreson: Testament
Blue Sky Gallery, Portland, OR - Oregon Center for the Photographic Arts, Portland. Sep 5 – 29
Jennifer Thoreson rented a plan house for a year, reminiscent of her own childhood home, and made bizarre costumes or prostheses from hair and fabric. She had normal-looking models wear them and photographed them. The result is a series of surreal, unsettling tableaus of people on the edge, showing both resilience and dependency.
