JANISE JAKIELSKI
March 20 - May 2, 2010

 

           
 

As a child I had a large round mirror on the wall of my bedroom. I used to take it down and hold it at my waist, walking around the house looking into the reflection, stepping high over the doorframes, marveling at how different my familiar landscape had become.

rcelain, mixed media, 2010

I make objects to transform the world and how we interact with the world.  My recent work is an investigation of perception and experience.   Through mixed media body objects I am exploring methods of communication and the navigation of the spaces, both physical and mental, that we inhabit.

 

Whisper Down the Lane,
porcelain, mixed media, 2010

I am interested in creating new ways, metaphorical and actual, of seeing, hearing and participating with our surroundings.  By disrupting or enhancing the senses, the objects make possible an exaggerated self-awareness, a break in the normalcy of daily experience.  With the body dressings I am creating a threshold space between reality and the imagination.  This work is a social experiment of sorts, a mediated event to explore communication, comfort and complacency through play.
