Kerstin Honeit: Ambiguity is My Weapon
January 18 – March 12, 2011
Opening Reception January 19, 5-8pm

In her first solo US exhibition, Berlin-based Honeit presents photographic and video works exploring identity formation through the visible markers of familial legacy and gender construction. In assuming the identities of nine-half siblings she has never met, enacting four women’s accounts of their father’s funerals, and documenting women’s occupation of public space, Honeit considers the public and private borders of gender identification in flux.
