Monday, March 1, 5-6 p.m.
Jason J. Ferguson uses humor and an absurdist voice to look at moments where the empirical sciences overlap with systems of belief. Recurring themes in his studio include exploring the corporeal body, using monotonous and repetitive action to generate experiential works, and placing familiar objects within a new context to create uncanny situations.
Ferguson often applies processes to objects that appear to be unrelated. For example, he has applied medical procedures to domestic objects; used geological core sampling to study the accumulation of materials and memories in a historical piece of architecture; and he has created psychological works that combine the intimacy of a home with the public spectacle found at a county fair.
