Post-Performance Syndrome is an installation and abbreviation of two years of performative work by Jade Yumang. In most of these performances Yumang creates elaborate environments and costumes as a way to evoke queer history and create new ones based on the notion of formlessness and transformation. For the Window Gallery Yumang repurposes the remnants of these performances as a way to explore what happens after an intense moment of creativity, demonstration, and the feeling of loss after a fleeting exchange.

Alexander (Sascha) Kargaltsev will be showing his recent work shot in the new 600 series Polaroid film. For Kargaltsev, the revival of Polaroid photography evokes questions about the role of nostalgia in contemporary photography, while allowing him to create self-portraits, nude studies, still lifes, portraits of lovers and friends, and depictions of alternative lifestyles — all rendered in this most spontaneous of mediums.
Kargaltsev won a scholarship at the New York Film Academy and moved to New York in 2010. Having suffered persecution as a gay man in his native Russia, Alexander (Sascha) Kargaltsev requested and was granted asylum in the United States in 2011.
