Antoinette Suiter

  • Antoinette Suiter
  • Interdisciplinary, Sculpture, Visual Arts
In my sculptures, installations, and mixed-media works-- I use ubiquitous domestic objects including carpet, PVC pipes, and wooden framing; to emphasize the uncanny within the familiar. I often begin with a foundation of research, digging into and deconstructing obscure histories, creating uncanny and surreal narratives from the bits and pieces left behind. A term I often circle back to in my practice, is ‘nostomania’. An outmoded psychological term used to characterize a harmfully extreme form of nostalgia; an unremitting desire to return home or go back to a familiar place exemplifies the affliction. A hyper-fear, horror, and obsession with the objects of home also characterize nostomania. Nostalgia in these circumstances is pushed to a perilous degree, and out of the control of the individual experiencing it. I view my work as a movie for one; an implied larger narrative abbreviated, displaced and contextualized within the structure of yet another narrative. The objects I see as de-contextualized movie props in terms of form and subject matter, but also self-contained units complete in their own existence-- rather than secondary forms remaining from a larger whole. This idea of a world within a world, as well as the intersection of “high art” with the cheap sensationalism of pulp, pervades my work.

Julia Clouser

  • Julia Clouser
  • Film, Interdisciplinary, Media, Visual Arts
Julia Clouser is a multidisciplinary artist who works with photography, text, and video to explore themes of perception, memory, and place. She is best known for using imagery appropriated from her grandfather’s 8mm films shot in Florida throughout the 1960s and 70s; these films were shot on a camera that unexpectedly exposed the film outside of its standardized frame, creating moments existing only in the film’s margins. Julia’s approach to the materiality of images questions how we perceive or fail to perceive moments in their natural context.

Nicole Dyer

  • Nicole Dyer
  • Visual Arts
My work examines a need for excess in the wake of restriction. After 17 years compulsively whittling down the number of foods I allowed myself to eat, last year, at age 28, I was left with just one. As my food list shrank, my paintings ballooned: domestic landscapes crowded with health books and food wrappers and children’s toys, the paint itself bloated with glitter and candy and sea glass. The resulting work is kleptic and obsessive, adorned with shiny objects like a magpie’s nest. My paintings are a meditation on disordered eating in an age of overconsumption.
