Respecere by Jen Sebring

September 4, 2020 at7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Respecere is a term taken from Donna Haraway’s work, When Species Meet, which she defines as, “[an] act of respect. To hold in regard, to look back reciprocally, to notice, to pay attention.” Respecere, in this instance, considers the embodied space between human and horse at a single point in time, and what can be gained from reflecting on this momentary intra-action.
Join us at 7pm on September 4, 2020 for the opening reception of “Respecere” by Jen Sebring. This opening reception will be taking place on Zoom.
Jen Sebring (they/them) is a Winnipeg-based, self-taught artist whose practice is primarily situated in photography but Jen is often expanding their repertoire and experimenting across disciplines, methodologies, and mediums. Jen’s work is conceptually grounded in feminist theories of the body, and considers embodied knowledge as its main focus, largely shaped by their experiences of disability and illness. Currently, Jen is a researcher and student in Community Health Sciences at the University of Manitoba.
