Intersexions features new work by Boise-based artists Caroline Earley and Kate Walker. A collaborative series developed during a recent artists residency at Whitireia Community Polytechnic in New Zealand, Intersexions explores ideas relating to boundary crossing and the construction of gender. Personal and political boundaries are constantly being crossed in the rapidly shifting territory of gender identity. Through the use of ceramics and mixed media, forms suggesting XY chromosomes are arranged to suggest various equations or combinations. Narrative line drawings depict couples involved in ambiguous contact activities, and the playful usage of bright colors and flocking accentuate humor and add a festive absurdity.
