Presenting Artists

John Chiaromonte

Chiaromonte's performance/spiritual practice is rooted in silence, stillness and solitude walked out through rituals/actions within the landscape. Saint Brendan walking through Dandi Satyagraha is a six-hour durational piece in 3 movements. The piece explores the pain/memory of growing older and losing self to aging body/mind/spirit. Moving from birthing ritual/action through walker processions into the outdoor space finishing up with a common meal/remembering ritual/action. Hopefully drawing the audience/viewer/participant into themselves exposing our common wounds.


Amber Eggleton

Amber Eggleton received her Bachelor of Fine Art in Studio Art from Sam Houston State University and is currently attending the University of Arkansas pursuing a Post-baccalaureate in Sculpture. Through sculpture and performance, she discusses the missteps we can make during the attempt to share information. Romanticizing memories of her own and the experiences of others, Eggleton seeks to build and become apart of relationships out of moments that do not belong to her. Her work has been shown at Nude, Backspace, Fayetteville, AR, The Big Show, Lawndale Art Center, Houston, TX, Here Today, Gone Tomorrow V, Huntsville, TX.


Angeli

connected, i am a storm is a site-responsive work that allows place to shape memory. Last iteration presented at Pioneer Works in '16, film in collaboration with Sarah Sitzler. Angeli lives and works in New York. Her work creates conditions for immaterial and material embodied transformations, towards new ways of elaborating life and the possibilities of being otherwise. Some people call her a performance artist.


Lorene Bouboushian & Kaia Gilje

Know What Smokes is an improvisational duet by Kaia Gilje and Lorene Bouboushian that attempts to activate sensation through touch that ranges from tender, to sensual, surprising, painful, mundane, and absurd. Using a system of physical communication and exploration in which sight is removed, they engage with each other through submission, cooperation, and confrontation.


Justin Zachary

Zachary investigates the relationship between his mother and father as a means of commutation and addresses the issues of masculinity through the use of an interdisciplinary practice. I Don't Want To Play House is a durational performance.


Erin Peisert & Jared Mimm

Erin and Jared are a Shanghai-based live art action duo. Using time, space, and their bodies as material they explore the relational aspects of duality, tension, and intimacy in their work. The experiential nature of their practice can be presented publicly as a social experiment or live in a performative context.


Tom Maio

Maio is interested in the relationship between the queer individual and the gothic monster, such as Dracula. These two identities share similar characteristics that evoke fears about sex and death. Maio will be re-performing a new version of his piece untitled (BITE). This piece explores the transformation from human to vampire and the act of coming out as queer, as well as themes of failure and the body.


Esther Neff

Esther Marveta Neff is an organizer, theorist, and performance-maker. She is the founder of Panoply Performance Laboratory (PPL), a lab site in Brooklyn, NY and flexible collaborative making operas-of-operatios. Neff's current work practices collective ideation and investigates matters of attention, motivation, and intention. Her performance art work frequently involves assemblage, hand-made books, and durational inhabitation of embodied research tactics. www.panoplylab.org, http://estherneff.tumblr.com/
