What We Carry - Kannski Gallery

What We Carry is an exhibition around the politics held in the body, and in the barriers that those bodies inhabit, transgress, or break. Pairing black and white photographic works with found objects and light sculpture, the exhibition brings together the work of American artist Morgan Levy with that of Taiwanese artist Chen Yu-Jung.

Levy’s photographs show women and queer people in the acts of constructing or dismantling space. Existing in the empowering and precarious moments found in spaces synonymous with masculinity, Levy’s images of these bodies—vulnerable in many ways—highlight tenderness and acts of physicality.

Alongside Levy’s photographs is Chen’s half-real, half-fantastical archive of the life of a Taiwanese man living with HIV. Through light sculptures and installations of personal ephemera, Chen’s work is an uneasy reconstruction of the line between reality and illusion within personal and social consciousness of the stigmatized disease.

Together, the artists create an intimate, almost parallel world that seeks to highlight questions of how we are seen, why, and by whom.
