Gina Osterloh


In “Shooting Blanks,” Gina Osterloh combines installation and preforming arts featuring herself on a paper stage. Her latest works, including “The Rash Room,” “The Cut Room,” and “The Turquoise Room,” are staged for the camera with Osterloh as the main subject enclosed in rooms of brightly colored bond paper. However, the candy colored walls frame a darker matter; Osterloh obscures her face behind her hair and often covers her entire body in paper strips, toying with the notion of identity crisis. In each installation, she slowly removes herself from the room, and is gradually eaten by the empty space, leaving behind a vacancy that echos that emptiness, or “blankness.”
