Justin Korver’s exhibition continues his investigation and surfacing of gendered language and cultural practices. This series considers the romantic innuendo present in hunting culture through mixed media, sculptural works, prints, and a wall mural. In his making Korver is often also collapsing gendered art and craft processes, such as woodworking and sewing, to subvert and destabilize our existing ideas about masculine and feminine identities. His aesthetic sensibilities are deeply influenced by modernism and his upbringing in Iowa within a family of carpenters and the construction industry. This exhibition follows Korver’s 2019 Kunstlerhaus Bethanien residency as a part of Contemporary at Blue Star’s Berlin Residency Program.
