About the Performances

Fine China
A performance by Andrea Zampitella

By comparing ideas and materials, Fine China, explores the composition of improbable materials in ways that contradict their function. The piece pushes our notion about the connotation of certain materials, in this case,porcelain, and how we associate it with fragility and weakness.

About the Performances

A Bird of a Different Feather
A performance by Molly Hess

The little things in life help us get through the long days, weeks and years of our lives and bring meaning to otherwise unimportant objects through memories, personal connections etc. This performance involves creating a new lawn ornament with gallery visitors outside the gallery on the front lawn.

Untitled (Paper Bags)
A performance by Rebecca Henriksen

How do we organize our belongings in the spaces where we live? Henriksen explores notions of remnant, ephemerality, memory, the body, and materiality in her work. Drawing on personal memories of love and pain as well as textual sources, she creates work at the intersection of embodiment, identity, and endurance.

About the Performances

Semiotics of the Bathroom
A performance piece by Jamezie

Most people understand Trans issues as synonymous with what the mainstream LGBTQIA community would make out to be a single issue concern (i.e. gender-specific bathrooms). Bathrooms act as both a private and public space through which we curate the body we present to the world. Transgender artist Jamezie will perform the gendered bathroom ritual of managing body hair.

Does It Bring You Joy?
A performance piece by Excavate with Sharon Kivenko, Bess Paupeck, and Alli Ross

Excavate, a site-based artist collective, is interested in the meeting of location, place and body and the stories that emerge from the meeting of these two landscapes. Does it bring you Joy? is inspired by our never-ending desire to control our environment. This performance explores how we organize, and sometimes live in, clutter.
