Performances by: 

Mairead Delaney 
(Ireland/Chicago) born in 1991, explores how gendered bodies respond to the unleashing of systemic violence. She received a postgraduate diploma from the Burren College of Art (NUIG) in Ireland, while working with the Irish women’s collective Survivors of Symphysiotomy. She is currently pursuing her MFA at SIAC. Delaney has exhibited in New York, Ireland and the UK, Chile and Ethiopia.

Liping Ting (Taiwan)
born in Taiwan in 1964, is an interdisciplinary artist who produces works of video, performance, and installation art. From 1998 to 2004, while in Paris, she co-organized Topophonie, a group of sound experiments and public performances. Her projects are a process of exchange with audiences. Through materials, sound, and installation, she focuses on human interdependency, relationships, and issues surrounding the survival of the environment.

Nigel Rolfe (UK)
is recognized as a seminal figure in performance art, having played central role in its history as a noted current practitioner. Born in the Isle of Wight, England, in 1950, Rolfe has lived and worked in Dublin, Ireland, since 1974. He has worked intensively and made significant contributions as an artist, curator, activist and scholar. His work—spanning live performance, photography, video, and sound—has received international acclaim and has been presented in five continents in more than 30 countries.

Agrofemme (NYC)
(b.1986) is a multi-disciplinary artist originally from West Virginia, and now residing in Brooklyn NY. Through the disciplines of drawing, photography, object making, and performance, she builds narratives of longing, erotic subversion, and radical intimacy.

Ian Deleon (NYC)
(b. 1987, Miami) currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY with his wife Tif Robinette. Together they are the curators at PULSAR Performance. He holds an AA in English Literature from the Miami Dade College Honors Program and a BFA from the Studio for Interrelated Media (SIM) at the Massachusetts College of Art & Design, Boston. 

Alex Romania (NYC)

Recent work has been presented by Glasshouse ArtLifeLab, where Alex is also an artistic Fellow, collaboratively organizing their co-working initiative - Workspace. Alex has performed in works by De Facto Dance, Eddie Peake, Ishmael Houston Jones, Simone Forti, Steve Paxton, has studied with artists (at) Headlong, Keith Hennessey, Karen Finley, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, and currently dances for choreographer Kathy Westwater.

Huisi He
is a New York-based and Chinese-born artist. Her primary focuses are on performance, choreography, painting, and video. Having had a background in journalism, Huisi He traveled to the United States in 2007 in pursuit of the freedom of speech and self-expression. She attended the Florida State University where she received her MFA in visual art with an emphasis in performance. After receiving her MFA in 2015, she moved to New York City. Huisi continued her art practice in an attempt to maximize her artistic potential and as a tactic for continuing the path as a career. In the years since beginning her art practice, healing has become a central element, allowing her to let go of negative thoughts and emotions in order to embrace life. Her recent performance work is a response to this new environment and illustrates her internal struggle to balance dreams with reality. 

Hee Ran Lee
is a Korean performance artist, born in 1981, whose body-centered work is an exploration of the private and public gestures of the Asian female body within patriarchal power structures, and an investigation into issues of cultural marginalization. Her work has been shown in New York, Chicago, Santiago, Paris, Canada, South Korea, and China. She holds an MFA with a specialization in
performance from the SAIC and was a 2016–17 artist fellow of LEIMAY at CAVE, New York.

KarnaL KriminaLz [fujeetiv fleshh]

April 13, 2017

Ulay said there is "a criminal touch to art". Given today's fascist phenomenons, what does it mean to approach one's creative output with this sense of criminality -- whether in attitude or imposed embodiment? Shall we not all become delinquents together...disobedient?

⌘ FEATURING ⌘ 

Hector Canonge (NYC / Argentina) + Verónica Peña (Spain) : Self, social (re)presentation, and (re)construction of private and public spheres incorporating historical, literary, and cinematic references.

CREATIVE DESTRUCTION

February 11, 2017

______MARIA FORQUÉ & SOPHIE SUGARPLUM (SPAIN) We are a continuous mirror performance. One person in perpetual reflection. I am you, you are me. We exist between the real and the surreal. We work with the difficulties and possibilities of this continuous synchronicity. http://cargocollective.com/SMNET

______ALEX CHÊLLET (MEXICO) is a multidisciplinary artist working with the misplaced core principles of coexistence that result in the loss of connection with Nature. His performance practice mainly focuses on raising awareness that the bodies we all inhabit belong to Gaia, a broader organism, a planetary ecosystem that makes it possible for us to have a body made of earth, living minerals and powered by sunlight.www.alejandrochellet.info

______BRANDSTIFTER (GERMANY) is an interdisciplinary Artist and Networker. With Happenings, Visual and Performance Art, as well as sound and music and interventions in public space, Brandstifter uses communicative means of social interaction to transform anarchic concepts from everyday life into burning-down-the-house Intermedia. www.brand-stiftung.net

______PAS MUSIQUE (NYC) The term ‘Pas Musique’ translates to ‘not music’ in french, metaphorically negating everything that is established in music and starts from a clean perspective. The viewpoint fuels our creativity to create our own world of beauty. The aesthetic underpinnings are defined by the notion that music can be whatever the ear perceives.http://www.pasmusique.net/

______ELAINE THAP (BOSTON) As a Cambodian American woman, I use diasporic identity in my work to convey layers of being and relationships. I am soul searching, most likely through you. Taking the form of social constructs and objectivity, I am critiquing communication and the politics of identity. I seek intersectional meaning and memory in others by Other-ing. www.elainethap.com

______JOSH KIL (NYC) Upon much meditation, I suspect that most of what we call meaning are actually correspondences, attributions and substitutes. The inquiry eventually leads to questions such as "what does a cloud mean?" (Question borrowed from Alan Watts). The current work incorporates symbols, archetypes, attributions, specific placement in experience and the viewer's and mine own consciousness to attempt a broader perspective in the spectrum of experience. www.joshkil.com

______LORENE BOUBOUSHIAN (NYC) 
My work is an exploration into creating portals and tears between experience and expression that are usually relegated to separate spheres. It exists at the intersection of dance and performance art, and unabashedly wrangles with problems of representation and embodiment in both fields. https://lorenebouboushian.org/

TRANSFORMING MASS

December 17, 2016

Pfizer Pharmaceuticals Building

630 Flushing Ave. 5th FL Brooklyn, NY 11206

5th Floor 

Transforming Mass, a performance art based experiential show presented by Wild EmbeddingS, Pulsar, and RE:ARTSHOW, investigates a quote from the French philosopher and chemist Antoine Lavoisier: “Mass is neither gained nor lost, merely transformed”. In a divided and shifting political landscape, works by the artists will investigate how the body, materials, and space can transform, resist, and reform. Through actions involving the audience and architecture, the political mass of discourse and the physical mass of the body will be activated within the repurposed Pfizer Pharmaceutical manufacturing plant in Brooklyn, New York.

October 07, 2016

The “Hidden Valley” / a parallel world / made of dark matter / having very little in common / with matter we know

Charmaine Wheatley

Rudi Salpietra (with Honey McMoney + Butch Merigoni)
Máiréad Delaney + Rae Goodwin
+++ Unveiling of INCIDENT Magazine's 1st Print Issue, available for Free

"O rose thou art sick.
The invisible worm
That flies in the night
In the howling storm
Has found out thy bed
Of crimson joy.
And his dark secret love
Does thy life destroy."

The Sick Rose is a presentation of performances centered on body based explorations of femininity through a post-historical lens.
