RESIDENCY 32: JUNE 11-JULY 13, 2018 (Artists with children)
Andrea Geyer is a multi-disciplinary artist un-sensing the construction and politics of time. With a particular focus on those who identify or at some point were identified as women, her works use photography, performance, video, drawing, and painting to activate the lingering potential of specific events, sites, or biographies. She continuously finds new ways to materialize the entanglement of presence and absence in the face of ideologically motivated omissions. Geyer lives in New York City.
Juliette Mapp works with nuanced abstraction in the body and narrative language. Her work seeks to elevate the expression and presence of the body with the use of language. Juxtaposing her writing with movement, she creates a friction of meaning-making for the audience and herself. Movement and language co-exist as open-ended invitations for audiences to reflect on themselves and the larger cultural context in which we make and see art. Mapp lives in Brooklyn, New York.
Philip Ross’s research is focused on biomaterial design and life support technologies. He is a co-founder and CTO of MycoWorks, a San Francisco start-up that turns mycelium (the threadlike, vegetative part of mushrooms) into leather and other materials using carbon-neutral, organic, biodegradable, and fully sustainable technology. His background as an artist and academic has led him to a motley assortment of creative projects that can be characterized as “design biology.” Ross lives in San Francisco.
Tyshawn Sorey’s work is a direct, creative expression of his own life experiences that welcomes musical methodologies of any kind; that challenges limited, essentialist notions of African American music and creativity; and that brings about inner fulfillment through music. As an artist, he pursues a holistic approach to composition and improvisation through maintaining a grounded understanding and deep knowledge of manifold musical idioms, historical lineages, and media. Sorey lives in New Haven, Connecticut.
