Art Out: Hồng-Ân Trương – We Are Beside Ourselves
RUBBER FACTORY is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new works by Hong-An Truong, titled We Are Beside Ourselves. We Are Beside Ourselves mourns nothing, gives up nothing, makes no sense of history. Assuming the dispossession of our own histories, assuming the losses that define the textures of our positions, the discrete works in this show assert a space for desire and belonging in the face of a racist imaginary that relies on difference and subjection. The title of the show takes its inspiration from queer literary theorist Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick and her book Touching Feeling, which conceptualizes beside as a non-binaristic, non-dualistic spacialization, allowing for a non-linear logic that opens up possibilities to imagine identity as a multiplicity of “desiring, identifying, representing, repelling, differentiating, mimicking...” We Are Beside Ourselves is the first installment of a larger project that attempts to respond to our current political crisis vis a vis the delirious promise and desire of radical politics.
