JEAN CARLA RODEA w/ GAVIN TAO
Jean Carla Rodea is an artist from Mexico City, based in Brooklyn, NY. Her work deals with spaces and instances where socio-political and cultural constructs are rendered visible through performative movement, sound, and image. By using an interdisciplinary research-based approach, she is invested in understanding how time is insistently constructed through memory and how these memories whether embodied or recorded in spaces are documented and re/constructed. Rodea is especially interested in how these processes have the possibility to become agents to make space for fictional dimensions that can disrupt and subvert.
Gavin Tao is an interdisciplinary New Media artist from the U.K. His practice is built upon queering the space with objects, avatars, and his own body. In doing so, he disrupts the spatial status quo, introducing images that magnify queer visual discourse.
Performance and technology intervenes his video work, creating a dislocated sense of time and place.
