Emerging Representation

Interdisciplinary artist Dawn Kasper began gaining notoriety for her studio-within-a-museum installation at the 2012 Whitney Biennial, spending almost every day of the exhibition hosting studio visits, making art, playing music, and interacting with visitors. Kasper’s compulsion to put herself on display extends not only to living sculptures but photography as well; theatrically staging compositions of her death inspired by slasher films and Weegee-esque murder scenes. By channeling raw action and vulnerability in unexpected spaces, the artist continues to blur the boundaries between performance and participation in the tradition of provocateurs like Mike Kelley, Gina Pane.
