Christie Blizard


At the core of my work is an investigation into the boundaries between intuition and posthuman becoming. In my performances, I wear a 3D mask either of Scarlett Johannsson and Elle Fanning as a death mask of the hyper-desire of American culture. This phenomenon represents the death of the artist, being forced to work within a narrow framework of desire. When I wear the mask, it represents the erasure of my identity in place of desire itself. Often in my performances, I contrast this to the awkwardness of my own queer body and use sound to try to connect to different frequencies that might come through the analog circuitry of the synthesizers I play in an attempt to dislocate the listener/viewer from their traditional understandings of place.
