me & my army @ Crossroads Film Festival @ SFMOMA

me and my army will be screened in the 2018 Crossroads Film Festival at SFMOMA on June 9th. 

Program 4 will feature artists Sair Goetz, Nico La Shae, Talena Sanders, Kelly Sears and Alexander Stewart in attendance.

“Films of wander, drift, and encounter with the world give way to abstracted spaces and fragmentary envisionings of bodies. Self-portraiture gives way to other-portraiture, cinematic revisioning and enactment of feminist art actions. Experiences forgotten by the mind are carried by the body. Aches may linger. Is it uncommon to relive events in which your body played no part?” 
— San Francisco Cinematheque

Residency @ Vermont Studio Center

For the month of April 2018, I will be working on a four-channel video called barbershop quartet while in residence at Vermont Studio Center. This is part of a larger project called silicon masc, both focusing on speech, song, voice, silence, and aesthetic vocabularies of gender performance. Through it, I am processing the silent-text-screen of meme culture and my earliest drag experience as a 2nd-grade “girl” who wanted to be John Travolta as he sang Greased Lightening.
