Girlstar – 2007

Houston video artist, Jenny Schlief, has an opening at The Joanna this weekend.  I got a chance to hear her talk about her work at Diverseworks over the weekend and am looking forward to seeing her new stuff.  The work draws attention to the fine line between childhood innocence and the reality of adulthood.  On her YouTube page, Jenny writes about Girlstar – 2007, “Spent the night in a hotel and then woke up to perform this video where I jump on the bed singing ‘whatever’ to children’s songs.”

Check out her show at the Joanna this Saturday, October 17th at 6:00PM.
