HOMO IDENTUS explores the relationship between community and disability and the formation of identity as a response to hegemony.
Who are you?
How do you fit into the world around you?
Why do you think you fit in the ways that you do, or don’t?
And under what authority?
The art installation, comprised of over 300 individual works, opens the conversation by representing the community in which artist Ketra Oberlander resides and creates. Her representations of friends, family, colleagues, neighbors and acquaintances fill the gallery space and surround “The Disabled”: flat gray representations of the afflictions from which she and her community suffer.
Whether one sees the suffering or the abundance of creation, HOMO IDENTUS provides an environment for approaching a deeper examination of how we each contribute to the community in which we live.
