cHURCH OF MONIKA: POST HUMAN ANIMAL INSTINCT / I wanna melt your gender hairs
April 9 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Join us for POST HUMAN ANIMAL INSTINCT / I wanna melt your gender hairs at the cHURCH OF MONIKA as KC Crow Maddux discusses their work. This is a free event. Bagels and coffee will be served.
Using drawing and layered transparent photographs of their own transgender body, KC diagrams symbolic constellations relating to gender, desire, and sexuality. Photographs are layered and suspended over paintings done on those walls. The transparent nature of the clear film creates an analogue composite effect that creates the appearance of a cohesive, solid image while in reality it is made of multiple hanging individual fragments. Gender is a real thing, it is a construction and also a lived reality; an amalgam of puppetry and embodiment, nonsense.
KC Crow Maddux is a Brooklyn based trans artist who explores themes relating death, sexuality, and gender. After finishing the Kansas City Art Institute, they showed locally and in Chicago for several years, receiving an Urban Culture Project studio residency, multiple nominations for the Charlotte Street Grant, and exhibited at the Renaissance Society, in Chicago. After earning a M.F.A. at the University of Texas, they moved to Brooklyn in 2013. Their work has been written about in Review magazine, The Kansas City Star, Pitch Weekly, Austin Chronicle, Hyperallergic, and Art New City (sometimes as Kacy Maddux). In the past year they have shown at the International Cultural Center of Krakow and venues in Austin and Brooklyn.
