I just launched the latest Artist Feature with London based actionist, Poppy Jackson. Check it out here.
I am pleased to announce that Performance is Alive reached another milestone by presenting it's first Artist Feature. This week we hear from Alexandra Zierle & Paul Carter (Zierle & Carter). The performance pair presents durational works that investigate relationships, interconnectivity and at times, ritual.
The Performance is Alive Artist Feature includes a Q&A with the artists exploring critical notions of their practice, personal insight on their collaborative approach and a list of influential artists.

After recently being asked to prove that performance art isn't dead and exclusive, I decided to create a website devoted entirely to presenting performance artists working TODAY. I hope you enjoy the site and discover new performance artists that are creating work that you find personally meaningful.
The performance art community is truly incredible and I am honored to be a part of it.
Today I embark on a new series of performance works. Human Wind is a collective performance within Brooklyn community. I imagine that the geographic scope of this project will expand but for now, it is occurring in my back yard (so to speak).
The intent? To record the sound of the wind emitted from volunteers. Together we will create a human wind orchestra. If you are interested in becoming a part of the project please email or message me here.
As always, thank you for your generous support. Q

"When All Things Evaporate We’ll Talk About Minerals" is a one-night event focusing on the interaction between nature and culture, and the ways in which participants aspire the unknown and the uncertain beyond the imaginable. "Minerals" takes the human body as object and subject and natural objects as substance and projected meanings. With various co-operants whose identities are multiplied in networks, it presents various live performances among natural objects. The performers re-establish new relationships as they co-habit together, act one with another, with all the other objects and the audience. It is performative in itself and a collective endeavor.
