In Pretend Ones, Suso Phizer presents an audio installation composed of disparate accounts of gender and sexuality. Viewers are invited to wander through the space, listening to monologues sourced from interviews with participants in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and New York City. Voices in the show reflect on sexual normalization and the dissonance of reconciling lived desire and cultural expectation. Pretend Ones challenges common assumptions about the way that body shape and function determine gender and desire.
Suso Phizer is an artist from St. Louis, Missouri, currently living and working in Philadelphia as an MFA candidate at Tyler School of Art. She completed a two month residency at Bunker Projects in summer 2017.
