SOLO EXHIBITION of photographer BOB RAYMOND at the Fountain / Pier 66 Maritime barge
Bob Raymond has been photographing Performance Art since the 1980�s. With over 25,000 images created over 30 years of documenting, these images are masterpieces in performance photography and rich in history. �Taken together, it might even be possible to weave a narrative of the inhabitants of this other world, elaborations as to why they carry fish around so carefully, why they destroy potted plants with such vigor, why they coat themselves from head to toe in colors, why they toss their musical instruments off cliffs, or use them upside-down�Bob Raymond:
Friday, Saturday 8:00 pm � 12:00 am, Sunday 12:00 pm � 7:00 pm

BOOTH #6 : BOB RAYMOND : 30 YEARS OF MOBIUS
Special Guest SARAH TOUCHE [FRANCE]
CHAW EI THEIN: Many of my friends are in prison. There are over 2100 political prisoners in Burma, some have been sentenced to 56 years of imprisonment, some 65, some 102. All are committed to their fight for freedom and justice in Burma. I cannot help them to be free, so I am doing this performance as I explore the �poun-zan�: a form of torture common in Burmese prisons, in which prisoners must hold a physically excruciating and psychologically humiliating position for a long period of time. My performance is their real performance in those prisons. I hope you can feel it. ARIANNE FOKS: Ms. Foks is interested in the presentation of the body as a medium, its relationship to architecture, domestic objects, and its power to engage the audience and the performer in an emotional way through memory or by evocation. SARAH TROUCHE: Performance is a medium of possibilities always pushing the limits of dance videos, installations, and sculptures. Performance becomes the means to experience and produce art. MARTINE VIALE: At the meeting point of Japanese Butoh and performance art, I am concerned with the act of �Presence� as a committed and essential action. TRAVIS MCCOY FULLER: TMF will be presenting new works that explore the relationship between the autonomous self and the collective self. He will also be nurturing the sailor in his genes. PHIL FRYER: Philip creates ephemeral works that meditate on chaos and order, order and chaos. To witness the work is to see its birth and death, to look at the photos are to experience a fleeting memory. He explores the unknown through performative practices. SANDRINE SCHAEFER: Sandrine's ephemeral artwork explores cycles of the visible becoming invisible to challenge the body's endurance through duration, actions of transport and units of measure. AABIER: Their work focuses on relationships and environments. Within the situations and atmospheres that AABier create, they explore the notions of creature-comforts, territory, and flights of the imagination. They use fantasy as a metaphor for exploring relationships. DAVID BOYLAN: David Bodhi Boylan is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work questions how emotional instability can be represented by material decay. MYK HENRY: �Provocation when used intelligently can be a powerful means of jolting the spectator out of their normal comfort zone. Once this happens the mind is open to suggestion and people begin to think outside of the box.� REBECCA JAMPOL: The Complete to Clown Tea Party is a 20 min performance that displays where I begin and where I end. The beginning of my day, and the end of the night. Who some may think I am, but who I really am. MARNI KOTAK,: Marni Kotak is a Brooklyn-based performance artist who creates interactive multimedia works in which she presents her life as art. LOPI LAROE: Her work maintains a strong foundation in movement. She activates constructed environments with kinetic compositions using props, projections and sound scapes inside of site specific installations. QUINN DUKES MCDIVITT: Human interactions within forced ecological and social scenarios are often primary tenets within Dukes� work. Performance provides a platform in which her metaphorical re-interpretations of personal relationships can exist, perish, grow and morph. ROSABELLE SELAVY: With no formal education, she left her first and only legitimate job at a button factory in Ohio to move to New York City. She began her career as a dancer after being discovered wandering around the Port Authority bus station by a Slipper Room producer named Mr. Choade. MARK L. STAFFORD: His multi-disciplinary art practice explores work ethics, civic oppression, and productivity with a focus on the underlying model of role-assignment and stratification dominating in our society. MATT WHITE: My performance-based work is always a reaction to my environment, mostly my political or social environments. Most of my performances in the past have involved me blending into my cultural surroundings.
