Liss LaFleur: Fruit

Virtual Artist Talk

Exhibition walk-through video

Inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on ‘Camp’,” and the “fruit machine,” a military device used by the U.S. and Canadian government during the Cold War to detect and purge LGBT individuals, this exhibition examines the semiotics of fruit in relation to the queer body.

“A glass banana the length of my leg, apples the size of fists, and blueberries as nipples, were produced in residence at the Museum of Glass and borne through research on the use of historic anthropometry and fruit to feminize, criminalize, and sexualize the body.”

Opening Reception Sept. 4, 5-7 p.m.

      Kittredge Hall        

"Play and perception are integral to my current hand-pulled screenprints. Illusory and real configurations suggest folding, bending, and turning of two-dimensional planes. These abstractions are created with considerations of light, space, and color as well as the contingency of geometric visual elements." - Janet Marcavage
