Gina Siepel Performs Cycle of Self-Determination

Gina Siepel: Cycle of Self-Determination

Saturday, December 8, 2018 | 3-5pm

The exhibition Gina Siepel: SELF-MADE proposes a personal, queer investigation into the ideals of American masculinity and self-reliance. Siepel creates multi-part sculptural objects using wood, steel, pedal-power, and other iconic 19th and 20th century materials to connect object making, self-making, and the mythic American “self-made man.”

In this durational performance, the artist will activate the sculpture entitled Cycle of Self-Determination, a fully-functional sculptural pedal-powered woodworking lathe. Siepel will be fabricating “continuous profile self portraits” over the duration of the performance.

She has exhibited extensively in the northeastern US, and has received funding from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the Berkshire Taconic Foundation, the Puffin Foundation, and the Northampton Arts Council. She has been an artist-in-residence at Skowhegan, Sculpture Space, Hewnoaks, and Mildred’s Lane.
