Alison S.M. Kobayashi is an identity contortionist. In her work, Kobayashi performs a variety of characters that are both studiously and playfully rendered. These personas are inspired by Kobayashi’s extensive collection of lost, discarded and donated objects; ranging from answering machine tapes purchased at a secondhand shop to a love letter left on a sidewalk.
Throughout the month of January, writer and filmmaker Eric Cazdyn, artist Aleesa Cohene, and dancers/choreographers Jared Gradinger and Angela Schubot will work together in residence at Gallery TPW. Each brings a specific aspect of their practice to the collaboration. Aleesa Cohene, Jared Gradinger and Angela Schubot bring their 2013 trio all my holes are theirs to the table, an attempt by two performers to disappear through radical devotion to a third.
