FORMS AND FIGURES

FRIDAY, JANUARY 25 AT 8 PM

Doors 7:30 pm; $5 admission.

The performing body is intimate; it is exposed to harm, to the vulnerability of error, and the unmasking of things normally hidden. In performance, subjectivity, dislocated from objective knowledge, becomes a fully formed subject drawing correlations to sources outside the individual body. Stories emerge at the blending of interior and exterior, where the personal offers insight into constructed subjects and concepts. Through this, new avenues emerge to interpret the very relationship of subjectivity, subject, and subject hood. The presence of a lens further drives this multiplicity; part, half, or all of the body and its stage can be subtracted, while editing can alter the perception of action or proximity to the performer.

The following videos complicate the relationship between the performing subject and the subject performed, pushing and pulling both to stretch the possibilities of the personal and subjective as sources of intellectual knowing.

Participating artists include: Alejandro T. Acierto, Deborah Anzinger and Autumn Knight, Claudia Bitran, Shagheyeh Cyrous, Dean Erdmann, Anna Garner, Cameron Granger, Shana Hoeh, Dulce Soledad Ibarra, Prima Jalichandra-Sakuntabhai, Richard-Jonathan Nelson, Dan Swindel, Xiaohan Zhao, and Minoosh Zomorodinia. FILMMAKERS IN ATTENDANCE!
