Rural Fantasies

March 17 - April 23, 2017

IG Rural Fantasies

Rural Fantasies is a two-person exhibition featuring the work of New York-based transgender artists, Cobi Moules and Cupid Ojala. Their works, created individually and paired by the Iridian Gallery art selection committee, are both humorous and poignant, and represent their separate experiences as transgender people. The artists utilize the absurd as a construct to portray imagined moments in their lives. There is a profound exploration of the tropes of growing up as an all-American boy, to which most cisgender men probably haven’t given a second thought. The work is visually clever, intentionally provocative, and asserts itself as a reclamation of self.
