On 4th February, Lorene Bouboushian performed in Biennale artist Aryakrishnan's space, 'Sweet Maria Monument', at Aspinwall.
Lorene Bouboushian presented an interactive, partially improvised performance weaving text, sound, movement and action art. The work reflected on cannibalized identities and broken (queer/creative) community in the age of "woke" ethics.
Lorene Bouboushian is a genderqueer artist originally from rural Texas, with family ties to Lebanon and Armenia. They work within dance, experimental music/noise, and performance art. They build a rhizomatic practice through visible forays into performances and workshopping, and less visible forays into curating, writing, dialogue, modes of care and support, and resource sharing. They utilize “self-exposure and vulnerability in real, risky ways” [CultureBot, 2011], and produce “thought-provoking commentary on social limits” [Minneapolis Star Tribune, 2016]. They are currently leading the UNDOING AND DOING Social Practice Collective.
