Parsing Desire showcases work by current MFA students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, assembled from heirlooms, gathered on expeditions, collaged from site-specific locations, or autobiographical. These works span the gamut of mediums, methods, and practices to negotiate the experiential traces and fractures of embodiment, fantasy, memory, sexuality, history, craft, ritual. Together, they communicate: longing, always wanting, never having completely, or missing entirely. A study in haunting desire, hopes, and wishes.
