ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Hayley Blatte & HIRSUTE HEROINES
The third volume of Hirsute Heroines continues Blatte's transformation of pin-ups through the unnatural placement of body hair and the uncanny accentuation of natural hair. Her lifelike renderings of hair intensify the shock of the mutated sexpots. Results vacillate between bestial and beautiful, masculine and feminine, nightmare and kitsch.
SADAF H NAVA is a multidisciplinary performance artist, musician and writer. Her focus is the body, its extensions, resistance and confinement, vocal improvisation and the construction and deconstruction of femininity. Sadaf's practice incorporates a variety of mediums, often using formal explorations of movement and materiality through a dual urge for confrontational experimentation and narrative cohesion.
Bernard Herman sings noisy ballads about despair, love, and urban malaise. Expect costume changes, strobing lights, and nightmarish projections.
Debut music performance by the controversial video artist and poet RVL.
