DESCRIPTION

Pearly Foam explores themes of identity, memory and fantasy while gazing into shifting waters from the shoreline of desire. The exhibition features photographs, sculpture and installation work by artists Sofia Moreno, Wolfie E. Rawk and Oli Rodriguez. Each artist takes on radically different political positions and yet the scene of a hypnagogic seascape connects their unique projects. From this beach dream setting we examine mutated realities and objects of intimacy cast as myth. These works question cultural positioning of transgender identity and queer communities through the retelling of narratives from classic characters like the Little Mermaid to the distant echo of our earliest memories. 

This exhibition is a part of transfluent, a three month-long public engagement in support of trans representation and advocacy developed in partnership with Center on Halsted.
