GENDER AND DOMESTICITY ARE CONFRONTED AND QUEERED IN LIVE ART INSTALLATION “HOME” APPEARING AT INTERSECTIONS 2016
HOME is a live art installation that unravels the question of “what is home?” created by artist-collaborators John Moletress and Eames Armstrong. Images of home constructed from child’s toys, clothing and musical instruments are rendered unstable, destroyed and reconstructed in unfamiliar forms by the performers. This 5 hour durational performance will take place in the front windows of Atlas Performing Arts Center on Saturday, March 5, 4:00-9:00p. This event is presented as part of INTERSECTIONS FESTIVAL 2016.
A note from the artists: The act of defining home is an exclusionary process simultaneously designating that which is not home. This live art installation intends to trouble the possibility that home can ever be fixed or static but is rather a process that runs alongside our endless navigation of living.
Eames Armstrong is an interdisciplinary artist and organizer based in Washington, DC. Eames makes performance, movement, noise, and drawing motivated by queer and trans feminist thinking. They received a BFA from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 2010 and is currently pursuing an MFA in studio art at George Washington University.
