Jessica Graef: Evil Man Blues
Date(s) - September 23, 2019 - September 27, 2019
Bars are universal. The patrons sit on one side, and the bartender stands on the other. A long, high set table is what stands between them. I created the work around the question: Why do we, as humans, seek these places out? A bar can be a place where you meet friends, or a place where you go to find solace. A bar can be a community staple, or a place to meet strangers. In all cases, a bar is a place to ease a feeling of loneliness. Even if you show up alone, you won’t drink alone. This work became about realizing that all we want is for someone else to witness our existence, in the good times and the bad.
