Strange Company

Existing along the walls of social space, Strange Company (2017) is a body of collaged, life-sized post-human forms that appear seated at the tables where the public will join them, unbound by gallery etiquette and provoking engagement. Spliced male/female, living/dead, human/animal, race, arthropod, and botanical images destabilize the normative white human individual and create a majority that deem the viewer “the other” or “the outsider”, regardless of race, sex, or orientation. Strange Company provides not only abnormal companionship in a social setting, but also company in the sense of theatrical players of a visual narrative, offering a renewed formulation of the normative human.
