ARC GRAD SHOW 2017, 4th Year BFA Exhibition: Rebecca Bair
Congratulations to all our 4th year grads on their exhibition, and a big congratulations to Rebecca Bair for the top award for her installation We are not who we are oppressed to be. From Becky's statement:
With the inspiration drawn from recent events, I have been moved to look inwards - my current interest explores the concept of hiding, covering or, repressing one's ‘self’. My more recent renditions bring to light a violent repression, a forced subduing of identity to accommodate the dominance of another.
A powerful piece for this time and every time before. This work incorporates the obscured faces and overlapping voices of those who are often denied the right to be seen and heard.
