10 of my favourite Contemporary Artists using Performance – selected by Rosie Gibbens
Artist Rosie Gibbens has selected her top 10 picks for artists using performance that we should all know about.
Anna Perach – @Anna_Perach
Beautiful carpet creations
Emily Louise Perry – @EmilyLouisePerry
Working with non-actors to create uncomfortably voyeuristic yet intimate experience for viewers
Katherine Araniello – @KatherineAraniello
Sharply satirical, hilarious and political work.
Keijaun Thomas – @Keioui
Performances that are both confronting and caring. Striking, sad, yet joyful.
Korallia Stergides – @Aillarok
Improvising characters into absurd stories. Playful and weird.
Mette Sterre – @MetteSterre
Creation of strange characters and abstract narratives through body assemblages and experimental costumes.
Rosa Doornebal – @PictureOnScreen
Absurd, unsettling and funny. Interacting with sculptural objects as body substitutes.
Rosa Johan Uddoh – @Rosa_Johan
Political and deadpan (my fav combo). Complicating language and interrogating institutions.
Tim Spooner – @TSpooner0
Big stage installations with ingenious chain reaction creations and intriguing creatures.
Yuki Kobayashi – @YukiKobayashi0226
I like it when something that appears silly is taken deadly seriously by the performer.
