Joey Fauerso: The Clearing
June 18 - July 23, 2011
6700 Harrisburg Blvd., Houston, TX 77001
In her 2010 video “Me Time” San Antonio artist Joey Fauerso passionately makes out with hand puppets including a policeman, a firefighter, and a construction worker. In “The Clearing,” a video combining animation and live action, a Svengali-like female character plays her flute, seducing a young naked man into a forest clearing, reversing many of the established stereotypes concerning nature and gender.
