ART STAR is a project executed through performance, video, and
photography. The project's nom de guerre flirts with the idea of
posthumous fame and calls attention to the otherworldly, holy residue
that death gives to an artist's body of work. Ritualistic in nature,
the performances juxtapose occult symbolism and horror movie tropes
with the mundane to explore otherness and duality. Rejecting the
hi-definition standards of mainstream media, DEAD ART STAR utilizes
various lo-fi cameras to challenge the role and specificity of time,
place, and memory in performance documentation. Recent performances
reflect an interest in health and the corporeal (queer) body.
DEAD ART STAR is an Atlanta and Boston-based performance art project.
Using the nom de guerre DEAD ART STAR, the artist has performed and
exhibited in both established galleries and alternative venues, such as
the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Gallery Kayafas (Boston), Eyedrum
Gallery (New York), SEASON (Seattle), and #CASTLEDRONE (Boston).
