Pairs of Avatar "Twins" or "Clones" stand in sculptural poses in Kali Meads Neat Tricks Gallery

VB08 – Two Wear My Skin

Neat TriCks Gallery
12 September 2009

Gallerist, designer, photographer, and amazing person who I miss a lot, Kali Meads, invited us to do something interesting at her Neat TriCks Gallery. We responded with a performance that both takes inspiration from so many touchstones from the performance art canon, and explores instantiation and corporeality in ways only the virtual world can explore. Pairs of cast members created a sort of hybridic clone both wearing the skin of one and the anatomy (“shape”) of the other.

Vanessa Blaylock and Lyssa Varun pose as twins, each wearing Vanessa Blaylock's "shape" and Lyssa Varun's "skin"
