Alisia Casper - Invisiballs
23 Aug 2019 - 13 Sep 2019
An exhibition and series of events aiming to make the invisible visible. My strongest connection to the condition of invisibility is personal & physical, and comes from my experience of living with Chronic Illness. There are many fine threads that wrap & wind & pull me into invisibility- and they wrap and wind & pull at you too… within the body and without the body, all around us constantly the machinations of society & its politics embrace, tangle and thrive in the rich matter of Denial- humankind’s most daily & brutal way to vanishment. The refusal to see, to listen, to accept. It is a devastating tool of destruction. Denial; large & small; individual & all; the entirety of life on earth is moved, emptied, and forever hit by it.
THE ARTIST - I am Alisia Casper & I make art and music and video, and I write words; poems perhaps. I illustrate intuitively by many means the inarticulate mess of my mind. I also make a zine called ‘Chroniczine’ that acts as therapy for me and as a bridge from the invisible to the visible. I want to make the unaware aware, and to allow those who feel alone with their pain a new connection, a togetherness, & the brightening possibility of change. I live with fibromyalgia, endometriosis, anxiety and chronic migraine- and my beautiful little family. My main interests are; making & finding interest- and feeling & finding hope, love, and kindness.
