On this week’s Jess(i)e-fest, Jessie Mott joins Jesse and non-Jess(i)e Ryan in the studio to talk about her upcoming exhibition at the Epiphany Center for the Arts, Like Queer Animals:We Hold Your Gaze, a collaboration with queer scholar Chanal Nadeau. We yak about the origins of Mott’s aberrant animals, in all of their forms, including paintings, publications and animations. Take a listen on the wild side.
On this pod’s weekcast Iris Bernblum joins Brian and Ryan for an unadorned conversation about her current studio practice. Bernblum’s work explores an animalic kinship, navigating a longing for the unknowable natural world. The pair conjures a sensual environment by imbuing the space with scent, sound, and lush color. Her cross disciplinary practice includes watercolors, video and sculpture speaking to ideas around human desire to control and tame wild spaces.
This week Bad at Sports sees the return of two legends.
