Podium Gestures & Selected Work

Sarah Bednarek’s video Podium Gestures marks a new effort for Blackbird, as it is our first of a continuing series of commissioned work of art by outstanding visual artists in the early stages of their careers.

Podium Gestures joins here a selection of Bednarek’s work, pieces that feature adventurous, tension-producing juxtapositions and uneasy combinations—in Bednarek’s own words, "a melodramatic sense of the uncanny." 

In addition to the video, you will find a triyptych of images created from used stuffed animals in Patriot Series and five additional works under Selected Work. From any page, you may return to this introduction or see an overview menu by visiting the Table of Images.
