Join artist Isabella Capezio as they present an experimental artist-talk for “Blind Call”. Capezio presents work that plays with notions of visibility, invisibility, and queerness through camouflage motifs, investigating visual paradigms of ‘nature’ and environments of desire. Taking inspiration from José Esteban Muñoz, Capezio considers how “…the natural world that is usually, to some degree, the thing being invoked by camouflage [can be] rendered impossible or utterly unnatural, [asking how] queer aesthetics attempt to call the natural into question.” “Blind Call” riffs on hunting, camouflage and bro culture, examining how humans “try to co-opt nature.”
