Witchual Objects

Macon Reed is a multi-disciplinary artist whose works probe the notion of optimism through a queer and feminist lens. She examines the lines between transformation and failure, trauma and healing, playfulness and escapism. With a specific interest in physical performance and sculpture, she draws upon rituals of normative enculturation with regard to team socialization and competition. Her work interrogates the limits of optimism and the point(s) at which cheerfulness becomes self-destructive.
