Alum Jody Sweitzer Exhibition @ NEXUS
Crowd: Stumbling through displaced intimacy

Member artist JodySweitzer’s new exhibition "Crowd: stumbling through displaced intimacy" is an investigation of the human reaction to the invasion of personal space. This
will be Jody's second solo exhibition at NEXUS.

Jody Sweitzer's work delves deeply into voyeuristic acts upon the self while attempting to shift the relationship of the stagnant viewer to an active, self-reflecting participant. Her new installation "Crowd" represents the human figure using giant inflatables, which are then combined with ambient sounds collected from various "crowded" events. Through this piece the artist is expressing the seductive dichotomy that is created by desiring yet
rejecting the invasion of ones own space.

Jody Sweitzer's works in animation, video, installation, and performance have been shown in Chicago, Pittsburgh, and primarily in the Philadelphia area including shows at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery, Painted Bride Arts Center, Gallery Joe's Bird Park, Vox Populi, NEXUS, Bridge Street Theater, Gallery Siano, Off the Wall Gallery, and various sites during several years of The Philadelphia Fringe Festival. Her work has received substantial support from the Independence Foundation and the Leeway Foundation and favorable press from many area publications.
