Ambiguity Is My Weapon
400 South Peoria Street, Chicago, IL 60607
In her first solo U.S. exhibition, Berlin-based artist Kerstin Honeit presents photographic and video works exploring identity formation through the visible markers of familial legacy and gender construction. In assuming the identities of nine half-siblings she has never met, enacting four women’s accounts of their fathers’ funerals, and documenting women’s occupation of public space, Honeit considers the public and private borders of gender identification in flux.
Ambiguity Is My Weapon is presented concurrently with Bless This Mess.
