“I worked with Laura and witnessed the spectrum of media reactions to JT LeRoy/Laura Albert, which was often oversimplified and reactionary. For this exhibition [‘Another Side,’ exploring the artist and the alter-ego, at The Re Institute in Millerton, N.Y.], I contributed a sculptural response to the socio-cultural phenomenon of responding to ambiguity with intolerance.”
“For Artists’ Television Access in San Francisco, I created ‘Untitled (Persona Case Study),’ a window installation in which texts and images directly connected to Laura and JT are juxtaposed with other social commentaries on the construction of identity and the nature of truth. I compare Laura’s artistic gesture to a variable in a complex and unresolved algorithm.”
Here’s a video of Jasmin and Laura discussing ‘Untitled (Persona Case Study)’ with moderator Chuck Mobley (director of SF Camerawork) at ATA.
