Harrisonburg, Virginia, USA
Anna Westfall is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work often explores the complex relationship between memories, genetics, cycles in nature and the larger system of culture that inform identity. She is a professor at Eastern Mennonite University. Megan Jacobs' work explores delicate relationships--our existence as material and concept, the interweaving of two partners in love and the bond of parent and child. She is a professor at the University of New Mexico. Westfall and Jacobs have collaborated on several previous projects and hold a shared aesthetic sensibility, which utilizes various media such as rice paper, photographs, steel, light, and sound to speak to the complexities that enrich and confound one’s existence. Conceptually, their work orbits around questions that inform their daily lives and seeks to illustrate the mutability of the individual and collective.
