Categories :FIFA Experimental
Why are the gifts from the gods always conditional? Documentation of a solo performance by marshalore in Amsterdam. The piece is characterized by high contrast lighting, slow and minimal body movements, and pre-recorded sound.
The multidisciplinary artist marshalore is the co-founder of Vehicule Press and Vidéo Véhicule (PRIM). She was also the director of Véhicule Art Montréal, one of Canada’s first artist-run centres. Her work draws its inspiration from environment studies, social behaviour and symbolism. Her current research focuses on the intersections of language and culture, an area embracing language, symbols and images. She has also worked with Aboriginal women on the symbolic representation of post-diaspora self-identification. Her works have been presented in North America, Europe and Japan.
