Theater of the Mundane

"Theater of the Mundane" is a site-specific multi-media performative installation presented at chashama space to present at 273 Bleecker st New York, NY, September 2018, and during MAD - Museum of Arts and Design Studio Residency Program, February-May 2018, exploring the absurdity of the human condition through sculpture, assemblage, painting, costume, video and performance. Examining society’s brutally intoxicating consumerism and overwhelmingly unbridled desire for material possessions, as a symptom of extreme alienation and isolation, "Theater of the Mundane" deconstructs and devours the artist's own past artworks, metabolizing it's parts, intending to highlight eternal human longing for connection, festering behind and underneath the polite facade of shopping malls, industrial debris and digital worlds.

“Theater of the Mundane” live performances featuring Katya Grokhovsky, Alice Pirie, Katie Hector, Christine Cimpian and Alex Sullivan at Chashama and Sierra Ortega and Angeli Sion at MAD Museum, explore the human condition and effects of greed and overconsumption while interacting with objects, video, sound, each other, and the audience, highlighting themes of urban alienation, isolation, migrant female labor and longing.
