Fresh Meat Productions and Femina Potens proudly present Changing Landscapes, poetic responses from trans/gender variant artists Jackadandy and Maxx Sizeler about political, social, and environmental events that affect our personal worlds. Fresh Meat’s first show of 2008 brings together the public and private with challenging and engaging artwork that explores a clash of cultures in high desert terrain and life after Hurricane Katrina, respectively.

New Orleans-based artist Maxx Sizeler’s project documents the significant loss of architecture and human life caused by Hurricane Katrina. The Historic Building Souvenir Collections—a collection of debris collected and catalogued by the artist—are housed in handmade cardboard boxes conveying a sense of immediacy in the face of tragedy. Water Open - Open Water, a video taken by Sizeler and edited by Tim Watson, explores the destruction and regrowth brought by water. Sizeler’s third project the Note Card Piece invites viewer participation and asks respondents to share thoughts and feelings regarding the Hurricane Katrina tragedy, which will be archived with the Hurricane Digital Memory Bank.

Jackadandy presents selections from two bodies of work, The Plan: Claims of Territory in the High Desert and love full of life. The ink on kozo-shi paper series, The Plan, reflects Jackadandy’s years of community and environmental organizing efforts. The monochrome of ink on paper, desert horizon line, and iconic imagery are quick and immediate responses to rural desert living near the Joshua Tree National Park and Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms, California. Moving from the public to private, love full of life is a small-scaled series of brightly colored pastels on paper. These spontaneous gestures and bold vocabulary are unapologetic in their claims of love.

Please join us for refreshments and conversation at our opening reception Saturday March 1st 7-10pm.
