AboutPARTICIPANT INC presents Nash Glynn, The Future is Fiction, the artist’s first New York solo exhibition. Comprised of paintings, drawings, videos, and photography, in each Glynn uses her body as a medium to interrogate categories such as nature, female, human. Through self-portraiture, Glynn places the transfeminine form in relation to rapidly changing ecologies, positing climate change not only as a problem of representation, but also as a threat to essentialist gender ideologies. As artist and writer Aliza Shvarts notes, Glynn deploys self-representation as “signifier at a geological scale in the contemporary context of climate change, ecological disaster, and mass extinctions of the Anthropocene. Through self-portraiture, digital manipulation, and extra-planetary imagination, Glynn poses the trans female body as a metaphor for the contradictions of nature and culture. Working through ideas of utopia and dystopia, industry and intimacy, seduction and ruin, she uses techniques such as photomontage to blend the artificial and the real. These cohesive environments ask the viewer to consider the fate of the body, the planet, and the representational capacities of the artist beyond the framework of humanism” (The Archive, Spring 2018, Issue 63).
