Into The Potash – Jen Besemer

Into The Potash, mixed media collage, 2011


Jen Besemer works with words, actions and images to expose hidden relationships (and discover new ones) between and within those media. “Misusing” text, processes and products to create camouflaged or hybrid forms, Jen comments on the entrenched systems of contemporary life and the unresolved contradictions they generate. Recent work has appeared or will appear this spring and fall in Jellyroll, PANK and ARTIFICE, and at The Fridge in Washington, D.C.
