Fruitful

Bodies

SERENA JV ELSTON   


Artist in residence

January 1-30, 2021

Oread, 2021

In this unfolding body of work by Serena JV Elston a human form is displayed crawling towards an open window in the gallery. Failing to escape, she collapses in situ and her flesh transmogrifies. The grotesque composition of their Fruitful Bodies offers an allegory for western civilization’s cultural domination over nature, to wit, the ubiquitous pattern of extractive policies towards nature through the commodification of women’s bodies.

How to Observe a Flower is a social art installation by resident artist Tosha Stimage. Stimage is a Berkeley based artist who uses a range of materials to create language that lends itself to the idea of hope. In an unfolding exhibition at Dream Farm Commons, Stimage will activate the space and engage the audience in a series of visual and social offerings using flowers as the theme.
