Keioui Keijaun Thomas<https://artsresearch.fsu.edu/far-away-presents-keioui-keijaun-thomas/>

October 12th @ 7pm

(b. 1989, based in Brooklyn, New York) creates live performance and multimedia installations that address blackness outside of a codependent, binary structure of existence. Her work investigates the histories, symbols, and images that construct notions of Black identity within black personhood. The materials employed by Thomas function as tools, objects, and structures to compose a visual language that can be read, observed, and repeated within spatial, temporal, and sensorial environments.

Through movement and matter, Thomas deconstructs, and reconstructs notions of visibility, hyper-visibility, passing, trespassing, eroticized, and marginalized representations of black bodies in relation to disposable labor, domestic service, and notions of thingness. Her performances combine rhapsodic layers of live and recorded voice, reciting her own poetry and slipping between various modes of address, to explore the pleasures and pressures of dependency, care, and support. Thomas underscores the endurance and intimacy that care work demands from those expected to perform it — predominantly black women, black femmes, and people of color. By centering self and communal care in real-time, Thomas’ practice aims to build bridges of understanding, and community, to create safer spaces for black people and people of color.

Q+A Session to follow artist presentation.

Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi

November 9th @ 7pm

Sonnenzimmer is the collaborative practice of artists Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi. Their work investigates and challenges preconceived notions of the graphic arts. Their experimental studio was established in 2006 in Chicago. Together, they explore the physical and psycho-physical nature of visualization through image-making, sculpture, writing, publishing, exhibitions, design, music, and performance. While they move through an array of media, their focus is on triangulating a deeper understanding of graphic expression at large.

Their research during their residency at FAR revolves around the concept of the Holographic Principle. The Holographic Principle is a concept in modern physics hypothesizing that our three dimensional world has a two dimensional representation on the horizon of the universe. This “horizon” marks the physical edge of knowable space, at which it is expanding in every direction.

They are fascinated by the implications of this theory, especially with how it might relate to two dimensional structures here on earth, such as images.

The culmination of their research will result in a performative lecture presentation. Q+A session to follow.
