About this EventView map
Because is a series of mixed media, layered collagraphs that have been cut apart and recombined with stitching and, in some cases, incorporate vintage linens. This body of work was completed between 2013 and 2018 and marks the synthesis of various themes concerning the body, gendered experiences and violence. The works themselves are not explicitly violent, but use texture, color, scale and juxtaposition to sometimes create a sense of unease. With titles from Rebecca Solnit’s essay, ‘Men Explained Things to Me,’ they can initiate conversations that some viewers find cathartic and relevant.
Susan Heggestad is a Vermillion, South Dakota-based artist working in prints, paper, and mixed media sculptures. They have spent their career balancing studio work with being a teaching artist and advocate, working in such diverse environments as K-12 schools, care centers, healthcare, and other public venues.
This exhibit is sponsored by the South Dakota Arts Council.
