Curatorial Text: Le’Andra LeSeur: In Reverence

Le’Andra LeSeur is Bucknell’s 2021 Ekard Artist-in-Residence and is a Bucknell alum. She works primarily with video, installation, photography, painting, and performance. Her work celebrates blackness, contemplates the experience of invisibility, and seeks to dismantle stereotypes surrounding Black female identity, among other subject matters. In considering this exhibition, LeSeur offers,

“My work is about honoring – honoring ancestors, honoring lives I’ve never met, honoring family, and most importantly honoring myself through this process – and recently I’ve been focused on how the presence and absence of language aids us in this honoring.“

This exhibition immerses viewers in a quiet avalanche of information. You’ll see multiple media, from video to photography to sculpture, that engage the senses as well as the intellect. Additionally, these artworks operate on intensely personal levels and simultaneously raise macro-social questions. We invite viewers to take your time with these works and allow them to do their work; consider the feeling of color, the meaning of a shape, and the import of a word.

On display in the Campus Gallery
