Picking Up Crumbs: Roxanne Jackson

27 Aug

At the opening of Roxanne Jackson‘s solo show, “We Believe In Something” in the Minnesota Artists Exhibition Program galleries of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, it was interesting to watch the crowds in the two galleries. In the first gallery, full of objects and more light, people milled around, did the opening dance and chatted, but in the second gallery with black walls a single sculpture and light, silence reigned. The tension between those two rooms served Jackson’s pieces well, underscoring her work’s intent to situate itself in the spaces between human and beast, knowing and not knowing, artifice and nature. Jackson expanded upon those themes in this interview for The A.V. Club and talked about her use of animal imagery and why the work is so jarring. “We Believe in Something” runs through November 1, appropriately ending after Halloween, on All Saints Day.
