The White Bear and other Unwanted Thoughts collaboration with Lara Odell • installation and performance PROJECT LIST
CEPA Gallery, Windows on Main St., Buffalo, NY

A fragmented narrative that never closes (and never opens either), The White Bear playfully investigates identity and boundaries that can't be crossed. Lewin and Odell wear stylized bear suits and wander various land, city and video scapes. Their human faces remind the viewer they are not "all" or "pure" bear. They, much like the Kermode Bear (a black bear with a white coat), are an example of an evolutionary twist, or a de-evolutionary regression caught in the middle of being themselves and something other.
