It was a pleasure and an honor to be part of Performance Mix Festivals #31 (Infinite Corridor) and #36 (Meeting the Moai: Head Over Heels.) In both instances, the artists were made to feel welcomed and truly celebrated for their work, as reflected by attention to publicity, technical needs, and convivial gatherings. This festival truly practices diversity, equity, and inclusion, as manifested in their roster of performing artists each year. Big thanks to New Dance Alliance, Karen Bernard, and the entire Performance Mix Festival team who make it such a fulfilling and joyful experience for artists and audiences alike.
Removed Exposure: Publication (2005)
A 101 limited edition, handmade book Removed Exposure was published in 2005 and distributed by Printed Matter. Six black and white photographs are cut down the middle and bound at either end, allowing for strange pairings between the halves of the noir-ish cropped portraits. A tiny manila envelope rests in a felt compartment in the back of the book and holds textual clues to the identity of the woman obliquely pictured in the previous pages. The book is based on a performance of the same name by Karen Bernard and was produced in collaboration with Gray Fraser and Alexandra Wixon. Photography is by Newfoundland photographer Sheilagh O’Leary.
