FLAG POST: Selina Trepp
Tether Projects is pleased to announce the fifth installment of the public art exhibition, FLAG POST. We are happy to have Selina Trepp’s flag on view to the public. Trepp’s flag is the protest banner she carried in the 2017 Women’s March on Washington, DC. It was created in Aram Han Sifuentes and Lisa Vinebaum’s Protest Banner Making workshop at the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum in Chicago, January 2017.
Selina Trepp is an artist whose work explores economy and improvisation. Finding a balance between the intuitive and conceptual is the goal, living a life of adventure is a way, embarrassment is often the result. She combines installation, drawing, painting, and sculpture to create intricate setups for photos and videos. Selina Trepps work has been exhibited widely internationally and has received several awards and honors including the Swiss Art Award and the Illinois Arts council Fellowship. In addition to the studio-based work, Selina is active in the experimental music scene. In this context she sings and plays the videolah, her midi controlled video synthesizer, to create projected animations in real time as visual music. She performs with a varying cast of collaborators and as one half of Spectralina, her audiovisual collaboration with Dan Bitney.
Tether Projects is a curatorial collaboration between Rusty Shackleford and Julie Rudder. With a nod to the Chicago and NYC based project Temporary Allegiance, by Philip Von Zweck, FLAG POST is a rotating show of artist-made flags. Inspired by the broad use and display of flags from decorative to political and from personal to institutional, FLAG POST flags will fly for their own purposes.
