Description:
New York-based choreographer Faye Driscoll (US, b. 1975) creates performances that activate the dynamic space between artist, performers, and audience. Often balancing poignancy and tenderness with irreverent wit and humor, her work as she describes summons “the unnamed forces that surge between the viewer and the viewed.”

Come On In, the artist’s first solo exhibition to date, creates a space of gathering that invites us to encounter, and carry forth, this intangible connection. Here, Driscoll simultaneously captures the sensation of being in the audience at one of her performance works, the intensity of being a performer in her work, and her own subjective voice as a director. By removing the performers and removing the theater, Driscoll gives the work to the body of the gallery-goer, leading us into an internal dance of our senses: of self and other, body and world, desire and abjection, communion and loss.

Upon entering the carpeted area, you’re invited to choose a listening station, each featuring a soundtrack spoken by the artist herself. Each listening station has a unique audio work playfully referencing prompts she might give to a performer. These are guided meditations, erotic power play, prayer, lamentations, aspirations, and longing that come together to ask: How are we alive to the non-linear symphony of our senses? In this time saturated in technology, where is the body? How far does it extend?



Artist Bio:
Faye Driscoll (b. 1975, California, lives and works in New York) is an award winning art and performance maker who uses an alchemy of bodies and voices, objects and live sound to conjure worlds that are, like ourselves, alive and forever changeable. She creates immersive worlds of sensorial complexity and perceptual disorientation aimed to rile up the passive, numb, screened-out body. These interventions come in the shape of intimacies: a performer holding your hand, death metal song made through recording your stomping feet, a place to rest and a private guided choreography in your ear.

In Thank You For Coming, her recently completed trilogy of performance works—Attendance (2014), Play (2016), and Space (2019)—each took a distinct genre blurring while summoning the unnamed forces that surge between the viewer and the viewed. For her first solo exhibition, at Walker Art Center, Driscoll brought the immersive experience of theater into the exhibition space, inviting viewers to become active participants through a series of prompts and subtle directives from her series of audio works, Guided Choreographies for the Living and the Dead.

She is currently the Randjelovic/Stryker Resident Commissioned Artist at New York Live Arts, and is the recipient of a Doris Duke Award, Guggenheim fellowship, a Bessie award and the Jacob’s Pillow Artist Award, among many others. Select presentations include Kunstenfestivaldesarts, La Biennale di Venezia, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Walker Art Center, Melbourne Festival, Wexner Center for the Arts, Onassis Cultural Centre in Athens, Centro de Arte Experimental in Buenos Aires.
