Jessica Cebra: CAVE on view at Transformer
Saturday, December 14th - January 25th
Hours: Wednesday - Saturday, 12:00pm - 6:00pm and by appointment.

"Continuing our commitment to highlight the work of exceptional DC-based emerging artists, Transformer's 11th Annual DC Artist Solo Exhibition presents the work of Jessica Cebra in her first solo exhibition."

"Jessica Cebra transforms the gallery space into a fantastical constructed cave, obsessively plastered with imagery drawn from the artist's personal museum souvenir postcard collection. Inside the cave, the legacy and stability of institutionalized narratives of art history are distorted and embellished to obscurity, covered in paper mosaic and collage - a fabricated shrine to impermanence. Fascinated by how history and collective memory are shaped by the ways we collect, preserve and present cultural artifacts, Cebra explores notions of impermanence, growth and decay by appropriating and manipulating imagery of man-made iconic idealizations, monumentality, and opulent materiality in the face of larger natural forces."
