Jade Montserrat podcast with Performance Space

]performance s p a c e [ is nothing if not its relationships; a dynamic constellation of  thinkers, feelers & makers, reimagining our world(s).

Throughout PSX, ]ps[ director Benjamin Sebastian will host a series of 10 conversations with artists and culture makers from our   p a s t   who have influenced our ongoing work.

Podcast conversations will be made available online on the last Friday of every month (April through August 2021).

This conversation features the artist Jade Montserrat. 

Dancing her way through history and her story. Marking the archive and letting it mark her. Finding a voice within a chorus of opinions and reflecting projections of now and then. Montserrat’s work is a fracture in the linear narrative of consumption and a rigorous critique of the way cultural production scars bodies and constructs histories.

Her work exposes the perceptions of the Other as weighted responsibility in need of retort. Skirting social activism by gesturally and texturally ascertaining new ground for politicized territories manifest through performance, film, installation, sculpture, print & text. This process is focused on the interrogation of materials, rearticulating them to expose gaps in both visual and linguistic habits.
