Te Whare Hēra is happy to announce our next artist, Latham Zearfoss. Latham Zearfoss lives and works in Chicago, and holds an M.F.A. from the University of Illinois. They are a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice forms around time-based projects. They work largely in video and sound, object installations and also produce music and publications. Zearfoss has participated in numerous group exhibitions in the USA and held a number of solo exhibitions in the USA, including YesX1000 (2015) in Chicago, and Bruising Darkness (2014) in Baltimore. In 2017 their exhibition Intents and Purposes at the Andrew Rafacz Gallery in Chicago included a number of different works in a variety of media. Concerned with inherited queer histories and the everyday realities of social and political life on the margins, Zearfoss’s intersectional practice focuses on formative experiences of “selfhood and otherness”. Stay tuned to see all the exciting things Latham will do here! Video from WHITE BALANCE (2018) provided by the artist.
