Tuesday, May 30, 7:30-9pm: "tender fortress after dark"
see the installation in its ethereal "dark mode"at this special lights out event!
Jae Southerland works with tulle as an expression of femme identity and queer desire. In tender fortress, a large-scale interactive installation invites the viewer to explore dreams and memories. Emulating a painterly style with tulle creates a dream-like world that elicits a simultaneous feeling of safety and childlike wonder (a soft and tender fortress for our inner child), much like the blanket forts we make with our friends and family in childhood.
