to shoot the sun

Isabella Convertino

2018 - 2020

'to shoot the sun' (2018 to 2020) is a reflection on trauma and experience with masculine energies, as well as an investigation of whiteness in suburbia. I am interested in containing and studying male power— observing its growth and erosion, sourcing its construction and relegation. In this body of work, I forge suburban geographies to create a terrarium, one in which I am able to direct and deconstruct performances of gender, and to consider the relationship between power and intimacy. Bleaching light and uniform landscapes trap subjects in an immobility and overexposure. Bodies are contained, muted, and observed, fastened to a condition of waiting and a process of decomposition, subject to a caustic light.
