BOUND (WHAT IF ALL MY FRIENDS WERE DYING? WHAT IF ALL MY FRIENDS WERE DEAD?)

Bound examines recent nostalgia for 1980s and early 1990s fashion and visual culture. Composed of “living” video portraits, the series comments on the reality that many young queers—born after the emergence of the AIDS epidemic—are unfamiliar with the lives and work of their predecessors, yet perform stylistic similarities in their own appearances, art practices, and […]

CHEAP THRILLS/SWEET DREAMS

Cheap Thrills/Sweet Dreams is a 9-foot lantern in the shape of a trailer-caravan, a group video work collated by Anna Helme, and a beacon for the idea of Queer Belonging. It is a re-creation of one of the matching trailer-caravan homes of Jackson Stacy and Vincent Silk (the subjects of Anna Helme’s short film MyMy), […]

EVERYONE SHE’S EVER BEEN WITH

Everyone She’s Ever Been With combines loops of live video footage with low-fi voice recordings of queer theory, erotica and memoirs to explore the tensions between public and private, and between bodies themselves—through cruising, public sex, and the other ways in which queer bodies repurpose public spaces in order to encounter each other. This intimate […]

FERO-CITY

FERO-CITY is a photo series/installation dealing with the resurgence of anti-LGBT hate crimes over a one year period in NYC. The footage comes from sites of anti-LGBT violence based on media coverage. Through scouring past media reports and community alerts from the Anti-Violence Project, Chen was able to map the locations of 30 incidents. This […]

for the islands i’ve lost

A visualization of marginality, embodied in this hyper-mediated island, stranded in information space. A pairing of video and sculptural elements with smells of citrus and garlic. A bed of rice serves as the ground. The space facilitates performative interactions and evocative sense-memories.

NIGHT OF A THOUSAND AGNESES

In this precision lip sync performance, footage of legendary dancer and Radical Faerie Agnes de Garron’s mouth screens on the real time faces of a thousand Agneses. Derived from Festa’s experimental documentary feature Tie It Into My Hand, NIGHT OF 1000 AGNESES is an unstoppable conversation piece. MULTIPLE PERFORMANCES THROUGHOUT THE FESTIVAL!

PRINT OF YOUR LOOK

A contemporary Satyr in pursuit. The hunter is reflected in images of his prey. Meditations on the modern human beast living through the pornocracy. Still images and a mirror, partially obscured by curtains and artificial wind. Flour on the floor separates the spectators from the exhibit; as they approach it and leave it, their shoes […]

PUSH MY BUTTONS

An interactive lounge space filled with hazy light patterns and ambient soundscapes. From within the space, you control the sound and video output, which in turn shifts the vibe around you. With the hopes of bringing attention and awareness to our most passive encounters, it is an experiment in how our actions and energy effect […]

SAUDADE

A film performance that, through each showing, the artist manipulates the film as it is being viewed on a manual film editor and re-recorded digitally as it is being projected. Originally a ritual performance where the artist tries to control his body through a single repetitive motion and documented in Super 8mm. Entranced by the […]

SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF (FOR THE LOVE OF K.A. & FRATER  PERDURABO)

3D animations and abstractions, hypnotic and jarring, pulsate to an electronic soundtrack. A spiritual journey, like an odyssey of pure spectacle and illusion. The technology evokes the sorcery of the digital age.Suspension of Disbelief is, among other things, an homage to the work of Kenneth Anger and his muse, Aleister Crowley. Suspension of Disbelief was […]

UNDER THE BURDEN OF SOLITUDE

We drag the memories of our dead. We drag the desire for kinship. We drag the conditions of our lives and past lives. We drag to survive. Forming a dome covered in knots, You press your ear against the ear of a human shape hearing the song of Allen Ginsberg beneath the drone of a […]

Winged Invasion

Winged Invasion is a screening in the palm of your hand. Abject horror becomes yours to hold, as horrific spectral apparitions gleaned from B movies like “The Swarm,” “The Wasp Woman,” and “Invasion of the Bee Girls” alight on your skin. These fantasies of bodily violation and perversion are normally played out in the safety […]

WORDS NEEDED

Words Needed is a four channel video installation where moving lyrics engage the viewer in thoughtful contemplation about political and queer ideas. A selection of artists were invited to create a collective feeling that interprets and describes a possible utopian world. Each artist produced a visual conversation with somebody or something to explore this idea. […]
