Senses That Sin

Senses That Sin is a multidisciplinary art installation which includes three art dolls, two rabbits, one live doll, one accordion player, and a live performance!

In the live performance, you will experience Indigo coming alive for the first time, as she grows more and more enchanted by her senses as they are each awakened one by one by Del Rivera. Will her fellow art dolls Lilac Rose and Ms. Boutika watch in amazement as they hope that their time shall also come when they will be woken up!?! To watch the live performance please click on the video, and on the link to the page on my website to learn more about the performers Namchi Bazar and Del Riviera.

I took my inspiration for this exotic/erotic experience from flowers and their lush surroundings and their ability to tickle our senses when we allow ourselves to fully enjoy their offerings.

In the next few blog posts, I will be introducing you to each doll in the installation and share my process in their creation, but for now enjoy the performance!!! xoxo

Expose Yourself – a Complete Success!

It with great pleasure that I report the amazing success the Expose Yourself art festival was last weekend! We had sold out venues, all the workshops were well attended, and everyone had a lot of fun. I want to thank Powell River for the hospitality and all the artists who exhibited their work and contributed their talent and presence to the event. Also a big shout out to all the people who came from near and far to attend and make this event a success. Here is a a sneak peak of my multidisciplinary art installation “Senses That Sin” which I premiered at the Expose Yourself event! This video clip was shot by the talented Claudia Medina and shows Indigo, the living doll,  with her rabbit Roxy as they make their way to the venue – with a little twist at the end!

That said, I want to give everyone a heads up that due to other projects that are drawing me home, I am stepping out of my role of co-producer for Expose Yourself as of now and wish all future events the greatest success. It’s been a riot! Stay tuned for more details on last weekend’s event and my upcoming projects.

Expose Yourself – Events!

Events!

We have events! Events are happening!

Here are two of the events 🙂

 

LGBTQ Town Hall! Exploring Issues Facing LGBTQ in Rural Areas (like Powell River — this will have a specific focus on what’s working and what’s needed here!)

16195557_1349266411797742_7342339204634364307_n

We are proud to welcome Robert Beringer, BGS, MA., experienced facilitator and researcher, to Powell River to host this LGBTQ community town hall event focusing specifically on issues facing LGBTQ communities living in rural or isolated areas such as ours. All ages are welcome to attend and the town hall format will provide a forum to share thoughts about community services (social and otherwise), health, wellness, aging, intergenerational connectedness, and diversity.

->>> Members of neighbouring communities are also encouraged to join <<<-

This is a free community event made possible by The Old Courthouse Inn and the Powell River Pride Society. We will be collecting donations from those who are able. No pressure. 100% of the donations will be going to Robert’s travel and accommodations.

During the evening Robert will present findings from his research into issues facing LGBTQ communities in rural areas in Canada and engage discussion regarding the specific needs and concerns within Powell River.

Click here to RSVP! (RSVP is not at all mandatory but appreciated.)

Expose Yourself 2017 – Process Driven

We have been receiving some super submission updates on projects in process.

We don’t want to spoil the surprise but, let’s just say that the 2017 exhibition will feature some downright libidinous (look it up, hot-stuff!) installations and community art projects. Remember the monkeys? The teddies? The giant felted penis mounted on a roving rumba? The barbies?!

Yeah… We love that stuff.

Don’t forget, the submission deadline is midnight on Saturday, January 21st. If your piece is still “in process” at that time, that’s alright, just be sure to send us your best representation of the piece (pictures!) and any explanation you think we will need in order to make sure we gotchew. And, if you be afraid of the request for a CV (resume) DON’T BE. This can be a full, professional artists CV, an overview of what you’ve been up to or a drawing of a artist rendering of your butt. It ain’t a contest! It’s research.

In the meantime, if you’ve got detail images of your installation (a pic of a detail or two on your project — something that won’t blow the surprise), your costume or your non-sanctioned Expose Yourself art-bomb, send ’em in to eyexhibition@gmail.com
