Annet Gelink Gallery is proud to present Toss, Steffani Jemison’s first solo show at the gallery, following her presentation at the Bakery in 2020.
Encompassing a variety of media including video, performance and sculpture, Jemison’s practice is rooted in research. Through time-based, photographic, and discursive platforms Jemison examines “progress” and its alternatives. Her work exists and functions in concomitance with limits and structures of narrative storytelling and linear time, and by keeping in mind the ontological, Jemison explores anew the inherited narratives that form our perception of the world.
Toss encapsulates Steffani Jemison’s modus operandi and practice: it exists and develops as a continuous choreography and a vocabulary that constantly needs to be reinvented. Movement evolves into a metaphor for life and about concepts of agility, growth, fluency, balance, and resilience.
