We continuously construct and curate our lives, our relationships, and our selves, by choice or by circumstance. We weave the stories given to us, those we gather, and those we choose to retell, to form a sense of identity. In identifying ourselves and each other we look to codify and define, and in such things we find both comfort and tribulations, as well as opportunity and limitations. Within all this, gender and sexuality are heavily weighted and fascinating topics by choice and by circumstance.
Commissioned by Beth Morrison Projects. Made possible by the Artist-in-Residence program at National Sawdust.
PRAISE FOR JODIE LANDAU
"Jodie Landau’s compositions create the path the listener is on. His works, and voice, seduce us with the charm of an old flame laying next to us in bed, the past forgotten and all that matters is where we are now."
