David Johnson & Philip Matthews – Wig Heavier Than A Boot
June 26–August 15

Closing Reception: August 13 | 5 – 9 PM

“Revealing Petal—a drag persona as whom Philip manifests to write, and David photographs—the project crosses art-making rituals with isolated performances within domestic spaces and pastoral landscapes. Taken together, the resulting photographs and poems reveal dynamic relationships between author, character, and observer. By articulating a specific creative process in which one identity becomes two, the project, in turn, opens up a conversation about gender expression through an art-historical lens. A corresponding book is available via Kris Graves Projects.”
