Resident.Alien. (2006)

Video documentation of the live performance of Resident.Alien.  Video by Jason Bahling.  

RESIDENT.ALIEN. is a multi-media performance work exploring the respective immigration experiences of the artists Marina Kelly and Kate Hewson. Music composition by Brian Daly. 

The performance (and video documentation) features aerial performance-gestural movement phrases performed on suspended chairs, sound recordings-the artists’ spoken text mixed into an original sound score, suspended objects and video projection.

RESIDENT.ALLIEN. was performed at the Waubesa St. Ironworks building as part of the University of Wisconsin-Madison's TRANS conference and exhibit in October, 2006 (read more about the TRANS conference here).  Video documentation of the work was featured at the Out of Timespace Exhibit (San Francisco Art Institute, November 2007).
