Jes Fan’s ‘what eye no see, no can do’ is an interlocking tube skeleton supporting a series of translucent amorphous fiberglass bulges. These organ-like forms transmute into orifices, thresholds of interior/exterior, abstracting the ambiguity of supposed binaries. With biological diagrams as one point of departure, the piece challenges conceptions of the body as a closed autonomous system.
Jes Fan is the 2019 Devra Freelander Fellow, supported by The Devra Freelander Artist Fund.
