Episode 121: Natural Fibers Sculpture and Gendered Iconography With Sydni Gause
In this week’s episode, I’m speaking with Sydni Gause, an interdisciplinary artist and Adjunct Professor in Sculpture at Alfred University. Sydni works with an array of materials that she uses in her sculpture, installation, and fiber-based practice. She uses her work as a means to respond to issues between power structures and gender inequality. Working with text and gendered iconography Gause exposes her oppressive truths and begins to challenge the viewers' conditioned constructs of both a woman’s role in society and in the home.
