I Am Maneuvering With Difficulty
R&D Projects // Angela Willetts


Embark Gallery is pleased to present Angela Willetts as an inaugural artist of R&D Projects, a new series of research-intensive postgraduate fellowships and summer solo exhibitions. In researching Fort Mason’s history and following conversations with National Park Service historians, Willetts’ explorations of the defunct military base led her to consider how the psychology of fear and defense systems currently operate within her own life. Borrowing military strategies and languages, her work underscores themes of vulnerability and protection through task-based performances, drawings, and handmade, site-specific flags.
