ABSCONDED :: #PRECEDENTSDAY
A PERFORMANCE BY DRAGONFLY

as part of the virtual exhibition

Body Memory - Body Vision: Performance Works

DRAGONFLY [she/they, aka Robin LaVerne Wilson] is a multidisciplinary artist who creates media and performance rituals for collective liberation. Born in Detroit and raised in Texas, she descends from enslaved Africans who rooted themselves in Alabama and Georgia after the end of the first American Civil War. She is the Gen X daughter of a career US Army combat medic (Korea and Viet Nam), and a military wife / homemaker / non-domestic cleaner. The unresolved intergenerational traumas of race, class, gender, religion and s*xuality inform Dragonfly’s work as an artist/activist.

Dragonfly has studied with Linda Montano, Guillermo Gómez-Peña, and Sharon Bridgforth, earned a BA from Rutgers, and is completing an MA from CUNY in Applied Theatre. Recent appearances include collaborations with Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens at NY MOMA and in the San Francisco Pride Parade, environmental street activism with Al Límite Collective and Sane Energy Project, debut of her solo show Black Q***r Madness is/as Hypersanity at Theatre Neumarkt in Zurich, as well as a decade of leadership and performance with Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir.

Her current project is ABSCONDED, featuring embodiment of historical fugitive and forgotten founding mother Ona Judge. ABSCONDED is a recurring site- and context-specific public performance on streets and social media. Archival performance of #UnpaidLaborDay was co-produced by Grace Exhibition Space, and #EjectionDay was supported by Hemispheric Institute. ABSCONDED has received coverage by Hyperallergic, the Brooklyn Rail and Ecumenica.

February 15th – March 15th, 2021

The Guggenheim Gallery at Chapman University is honored to host BODY MEMORY BODY VISION – Performance Works a virtual exhibition that will take place over the course of February and March 2021, co-curated by Danielle Cobb, Olivia Collins, Nicole Daskas, Lucile Henderson, Marcus Herse, Hannah Scott and Natalia Ventura.

Members of the Art Department’s DEI Committee, student gallery assistants and the gallery coordinator have co-curated this exhibition to present artists and artist collectives whose practices are vital to furthering diversity, equity and inclusion. Each week we will highlight two artists or collectives and release additions to the growing exhibition accompanied by student writing from interviews and personal notes to poetry.

Performance wants to be partaken in and a virtual exhibition can hardly replace the understanding of bodies interacting in the real world; the fleetingness of the moment and the impact that intense experiences have, the smells, the sounds, the feeling of proximity to other bodies and how we negotiate shared spaces cannot be captured via documentation. However, this show takes the notion of space and who occupies it as its cue. Addressing the ongoing underrepresentation of marginalized groups in the institutionalized and free market artworld, the exhibition shows a selection of performance works by BIPOC and genderqueer artists. Questioning the status quo of visibility within the framework of the contemporary art world and actively contributing to changing that status is one aspect the contributions share. Another one is the deliberate step outside of this framework beyond addressing artworld internal discourses, in offering visions relevant to communities and social realities.

Body Memory Body Vision – Performance Works presents 16 artists who create a distinct range of actions and whose aesthetic scope is manifold and cannot be subsumed under one criterion of expression - stylistic unity is beside the point. What they have in common is making ways of being visible that are invisible or actively suppressed; it is the invitation to see the complexities and scope of society’s heterogeneity beyond the binary thinking that still guides mainstream culture’s decision making in philosophical and therefore social, political and economic terms.

She has been an artist-in-residence at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, The Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning, and Chashama North. In 2017, she was nominated for the Paulo Cunha e Silva Art Prize.

Politically Private - Laub

Laub (b. 1986, Waynesboro, VA) is an interdisciplinary artist who works across glass, ceramics, wood, textiles, sound, and drawing. His practice often considers his personal life, making objects, sensations, and worlds that speak to the difficulties and merits of human connection, self-care, and learning. By approaching tangible materials in creative ways, he materializes the fleeting and transitional nature of emotion and being, and makes visible the human necessity to process, connect, and care for one another. Laub's work has recently been exhibited at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, Armory Center for the Arts, and Commonwealth and Council, and has been featured in Artforum, Los Angeles Times, and Contemporary Art Review Los Angeles. He holds an MFA in Glass from Rhode Island School of Design and a BFA in Craft Material Studies from Virginia Commonwealth University.

Politically Private - Iris Yirei Hu

iris yirei hu (b. 1991, Los Angeles, CA) received her BA from UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture and her MFA from Columbia University School of the Arts. Hu is an intergenerational storyteller and image maker. She uses painting, sound, poetry, and installation to rearrange habits of sharing time and making life. Her art, pedagogical, and curatorial projects explore the shifting possibilities of love in relation to systemic and institutional power. Some of her recent exhibitions include John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Wisconsin (2019); Women's Center for Creative Work, Los Angeles (2018) and Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, Los Angeles (2018).

Politically Private - Genevieve Gaignard

Genevieve Gaignard (b. 1981, Orange, MA) received her BFA in Photography at Massachusetts College of Art and her MFA in Photography at Yale University. Based Los Angeles, Genevieve’s work focuses on photographic self-portraiture, sculpture, and installation to explore race, femininity, class, and how those three topics can be intertwined. Being the daughter of a black father and white mother, Genevieve’s childhood was filled with confusion of identity. Was her family white enough to be white? Black enough to be black? Genevieve addresses these questions through her artwork. She often uses herself as the subject of her artwork in order to explore the idea of intersectional identity, and challenges others idea of it.

Politically Private - Derek Fordjour

Derek Fordjour (b. 1974, Memphis, Tennessee) is a graduate of Morehouse College, and earned a Ed.M. from Harvard University, and an MFA in Painting at Hunter College. Fordjour works primarily in the realm of portrait painting to create vibrant scenes that subtly address subjects of systemic inequality, race, and aspiration, particularly in the context of American identity. He has exhibited in numerous venues including the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Sugarhill Children’s Museum, and the Taubman Museum and currently serves as a Core Critic at the Yale University School of Art. Fordjour was awarded the 2018 Deutsche Bank NYFA Fellowship Award.

Politically Private - Nica Aquino

Nica Aquino (b. 1990, Los Angeles, CA) received her BFA in Photography from the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon and a MA in Visual Culture from the School of Art at Manchester Metropolitan University in the UK. Her work explores the idea of place, identity, diaspora and the cross-cultural experience largely through a photographic lens. Through photography, viewers see through her eyes as a first generation Ilocana-American trying to navigate cultural divides and drawing inspiration from the people and places around her, exploring diverse immigrant communities in the US and beyond. Most recently, Nica has began to experiment with textiles, installation, video and sound in order to examine the themes of memory and loss. Nica is currently based & working in the Northeast Los Angeles community, where she is a teaching artist, independent curator & arts administrator.

Featured in the Guggenheim Gallery at Chapman University, part of Nica's installation piece, "‘Memory Room’, provided a meditative atmosphere for visitors to reflect & pray, as they contributed personal items &/or letters & notes written on paper boats, that were attached to a river-like handmade textile based altar. I am of Ilokano descent; Ilokano means ‘people from the coastal or riverine lowlands.’ Creating a body of water is significant in representing my origins as an Ilocana & the large bodies of water Ilocanos are known for residing by. As the boats flowed down the river, visitors' messages descended into the spirit world, reaching passed loved ones & honoring the memories of our ancestors."
