of the North by Jacob Aaron Schroeder

Jacob Aaron Schroeder ’14 will be showing at Public Functionary this month.

of the North is a site-specific installation that includes mixed-media and sculptural artworks reflecting on the lived experience of a queer person in the world. While the works were created as a means of self-investigation and catharsis, Schroeder shares this installation from the position of his own subjectivity, informed and influenced by the stories and lived experiences of others both like and unlike his own. In this way, the work and topics presented insist on conversation and reflection. The installation is confessional, the objects within it a beautiful offering, rather than an attempt to represent or speak on the behalf of others.
