Romance lives in the gap between reality and the dream world.
You don’t have to be miserable to be deep, relationships with objects teach us a lot about ourselves, libido is only demonized b/c it’s a powerful tool for haptic touch that can inform corporeal understanding and cause alternate perceptions of happiness. Nia Nottage is a performance artist.

FRANCES YEOLAND

Human attempt at understanding is about ownership, and labeling is a symptom of this failure. This work is a composition of material that asks for meaning from the viewer based on its appearance of logic and rationality. It's is an absurd puzzle of familiar, tactile and industrial materiality. It is a system of symbols taken out of context, reframing our perception of value and meaning.

PERFORMANCY FORUM: BLEEDTHROUGH

Saturday, January 16th 2016

The sounds through the door, your energy into the bodies of those around you, the wound through the bandage, the the outside, inside, and vice versa, past into present, other realms into this one, one day into the next: how do we know when we are "performing"? Personal lives+"artworks" (un)related/(de)saturated/(dis)associated/(de)compartmentalized:

CASINGS and TREATMENTS

Saturday, September 26th 2015

"CASINGS AND TREATMENTS," the second of a two-part performance event series curated by René Kladzyk as part of No Wave Performance Task Force, centers its inquiry around how the masculinized body is housed and modified in the performance of gender identity. Through interrogating masculinity in its material manifestations via human bodies, a group of performance artists will enact gender construction as process, co-constitutive relation, and ephemeral ideation.

Behold, artist IVY CASTELLANOS completes actioned tasks exploring the masculine gendered body, while VINCENT TILEY investigates restraint, control, and desire operationalized through the gaze, the skin functioning as artifice and sensual site of action, as Vincent hovers "rather motionless in a suit that is also a painting that is also a hammock that is also a sex swing." ANDY KUNCL engages with movement, sensory stimulation, and inanimate/animate constructive interaction in collaboration with a posse of movers, COLBY CANNON plays with protection, power, and muscle growth, while STUDIO ROSSI BRODY enacts a crime-scene investigation TV show in "Man Forensics," operating as social scientists, comedians, and erotic provocateurs.
