Painter Agnes Martin, when questioned on her gender and sexual orientation was quoted “I’m not a woman, I’m a doorknob, leading a quiet existence.” Susannah Heschel, Jewish feminist scholar, created the tradition of placing an orange on a seder plate to represent LGBTQ+ Jews. These queer acts of resistance resulting in surrealist objects, that are absurd, funny and poignant, are two of the 6 narratives that Lucy Pauker explores in this exhibition. These stories unfold and connect through visual metaphor and material mind-mapping, utilizing the structures of watersheds, seams, pockets and weaving.
