MAG: Fine Art Grad Show Instagram Live Performance

Submitted by on 2020/05/06 – 8:30 am

Watch graduating Fine Art student Hilary Hex perform her work, Project Me, on the Mitchell Art Gallery (@mitchellartgallery) Instagram Live, Thursday, May 14 at 7 p.m.

This programming is part of the virtual Fine Art Grad Show 2020, which will be launched at MacEwan.ca/MitchellArtGallery starting Thursday, May 7.

As the artist describes the work:

“I cannot see what others see in me. Though my dysphoria and frustrations of being in my body have lessened I still struggle to view myself in a positive light. The footage of myself projected on to me was taken by my doting and loving fiancée and as I sit I read entries from my diary. These selections highlight my struggle with my body, identity, and trauma. I read these entries in chronological order, and the rise and fall of my mental health and self perception creates a contrast to the footage projected upon me. I wonder if the cognitive dissonance will ever settle and I can truly believe the words of those I love.”
