  AYMERIC EBRARD /  PARIS Aymeric is focused on the mutual relationships between territories and communities.  In Corsicana, and within this decommissioned Odd Fellows Lodge, he is interrogating local history through the set design lens active in Pier Paolo Pasolini's 1975 film,  Salò  - specifically, the set's modernist carpet designed by Marion Dorn.   Aymeric's re-creation echoes the city grid of Corsicana, and serves as a stage for the display of fraternal objects and local artifacts of charged histories that he has collected, studied, and placed.  Aymeric is a Paris-based artist, former fellow of the Camargo Foundation and of the IFM, winner of the Villa Medicis HORS LES MURS Program of the FRENCH INSTITUTE (French Ministery of Culture), Grand Price of the 55th Salon de Montrouge (Paris), and the Grand Price LVMH.  He has shown his workinternationally, including FRAC Grand Large, Palais de Tokyo, Friche de la Belle de Mai (France), and KCCC (Lithuania).

  JAYE  RHEE /  NYC  Jaye investigates the dynamics of memories and actual experiences, as well as the mechanisms of fantasy, through narratives showing rather forthright images with unembellished objects in performance.  Her project, “The Perfect Moment,” features an old dancer in present time telling her story from the past.  That work examines how we experience perfection through one approach: memory. It took Jaye years to develop the understanding that she is trying to uncover the mechanisms of memory and imagination, and how together, they create a meaningful present.  Currently, she is working on the Project, "Expired Futures” which considers, through the lens of the past and the present, how the future had been imagined in the mid-20th Century.  www.jrhee.com

CELEBRATING BLACK HISTORY WITH MASUD OLUFANI, G.W. JACKSON + SCALAWAG

Current artist-in-residence Masud Ashley Olufani (MAO) is an Atlanta-based actor and mixed media artist focused in sculpture and drawing.  In Corsicana Masud is drawing portraits of people from the local Black Community with familial ties to the days of Antebellum slavery, and who now influence Corsicana positively. Masud's residency has been made possible by the G.W. Jackson Multicultural Society and Scalawag Magazine, where former 100W writer-in-residence Alysia Harris is managing editor.  Scalawag Magazine's mission is to spark critical conversations about the many Souths where we live, love, and struggle. Scalawag amplifies voices of activists, artists, and writers to reckon with Southern realities as they are, rather than as they seem to be. 

Alysia will return to Corsicana from Atlanta to present her poetry work alongside Masud's current portraiture project from 1:30 - 3:00 during Sunday's Open Studios.

 Resident Edmund Eva has been utilising a 1980’s pen plotter - a defunct cousin of the modern printer which he has altered to be able to draw with a variety of tools. Fascinated by the grids and repetition of the American urbanscape, Eva used these as the raw data for his plotter drawings.  The result is a mass of abstracted drawings, of grids, parking lots, floor tiles and architecture.

    LAY OF THE LAND  Sun shot gut shot  lull, lilt, loll more than rumor.  “I need a safe place  to keep the wire cutters.”  We have met in a church  in the mountain’s echo.  Pressed together like  flour and water. We  have met before. Tufted  as trophies, the monarch  departed with shame.  His right, a helm. Mine,  a matter of faith. I look  fixedly to raise the dust  and fumble on the way.  Debt is all around, I’m dizzy  and lightminded. I run my finger  over the key and grope for words.

Resident Poet Katy Chrisler, with poem below written at 100W:

LAY OF THE LAND

Sun shot gut shot

lull, lilt, loll more than rumor.

“I need a safe place

to keep the wire cutters.”

We have met in a church

in the mountain’s echo.

Pressed together like

flour and water. We

have met before. Tufted

as trophies, the monarch

departed with shame.

His right, a helm. Mine,

a matter of faith. I look

fixedly to raise the dust

and fumble on the way.

Debt is all around, I’m dizzy

and lightminded. I run my finger

over the key and grope for words.

Southern Intentions Dinner: Three artists collaborate their mediums of ceramics, food and printmaking in a single evening event.  Chef Lindsey Byrd served homemade fried chicken and sides on porcelain dishes made exclusively for the event by Brent Pafford.  The paper lining guests' porcelain baskets was spotted and streaked by the grease, and saved by Adrienne Lichliter to process into her method for making wood lithograph prints.  Each guest received the print resulting from their basket following the dinner, as well as their three-piece Pafford porcelain dinnerware set.  For interest, please follow the Southern Intentions Dinner website for future events.  To be notified about 100W Dinners hosted seasonly, please express interest on the Contact page.
