Art Connects | Performance: Evann Siebens
In this edition of Art Connects, Vancouver-based media and performance artist Evann Siebens will perform "A Lexicon of Gesture (ZOOM)" live. Referencing a history of performance artists such as Maya Deren, Allan Kaprow, Tehching Hsieh, Gilbert & George and Marina Abramović, Siebens has developed a wide alphabet of gestures that are stitched together in live performance, photographic collage, short films and, now, ZOOM.

In this iteration of "A Lexicon of Gesture," Siebens incorporates quarantine-forms, including re-enactments of TikTok dancers, pandemic home-schooling mothers, Instagram Live exercise classes and drag queens. Using multiple cameras and streaming live from Siebens’s studio, this grid-like performance will juxtapose and conflate art history with our present mediated self-isolation.
