Austin visual artist Jennifer Chenoweth hosts her annual Austin party at her home and art studio during the 2014 EAST Austin Studio Tour. Enjoy refreshments and taste Jennifer’s homemade posole as you see her artwork in the context of where she makes the art. Fisterra Studio’s event is unique every year in that a new group of guest artists will be present and their work on display.
The theme for the art and artists this year is “Intimacy.” Any open house tour is fascinating for voyeurs who like to see how others live. This year at least three of the artists will be doing intimate interactive projects with and for visitors, the other artists’ subject matter is intimacy. Katelena offers one-on-one comfort-fetish rituals in an emotional day spa, Comfort Station. Jennifer will be producing drawings indexing the body space of visitors. Lisa will have an installation in the master bedroom about the minutiae of relationships. Wells’ work is about the private mirrored space between two planes. Jason’s work is an intimate study of the objects in our lives that we collect and discard. Aaron’s film documents the fragility of bodies in conversation with a mortician. Lauren’s installation in the bathroom will surprise. Calder’s interactive art projects examines our relationship with nature and the ways humans impact biodiversity.
Their collective body of work ranges from 2D, 3D, film/video, installation and performance. Check out their individual websites listed above.
