Natural History

Joey Fauerso

March 1, 2013 – March 30, 2013

Joey Fauerso’s video work playfully projects her takes on nature, culture, and gender.

Joey Fauerso’s video work playfully projects her takes on nature, culture, and gender. Based on traditional Romantic ideals, she rearranges discourses of the Art Historical past. Fauerso was selected largely based on her film “Me Time,” which records the artist passionately kissing a series of puppets. Wildly humorous for the first moments, the viewer quickly begins to feel self conscious and awkward as Fauerso establishes a real connection with her seriousness of intent. Hinged on the idea of narcissism and the development of ego, this piece performs the projection of self as the object of Fauerso’s affection, as she plays both roles.  “Me Time,” and a second piece called “Drama” will be on view.

Joey Fauerso lives and works in San Antonio, TX. She received a BFA from the University of Iowa and an MFA from the University of Wisconsin. She has exhibited as well as completed residencies both nationally and internationally. She now currently works as an Assistant Professor of Art at Texas State University. Fauerso was selected to exhibit by Second Street Gallery’s Artist Review Panel.
