Hyper Sites. Performing Mixed Realities will be a two day consecutive Saturday visual performance workshop open to artists working within performance, dance, choreography, visual arts and new media. The workshop will focus on an expanded version of site-specific performance / movement practice in which technology and geo-specific information are used in addition to site research to consider the culture and conditions of the locale. Working with Judd Morrissey and Mark Jeffery the workshop will work inside and outside of the Links Hall studio space over the two Saturday's.
Mark Jeffery and Judd Morrissey are a collaboration merging live performance and digital literary practices. The work, which is visual, textual and choreographic, evolves through context-specific research and practice and always considers the constraints of a given venue or occasion. Site-responsive concerns extend beyond the exhibition space to include local communities and online textual activity happening in proximity to an event. A given piece is a body of material that may have no singular fixed form but is alternately or simultaneously presented as large-scale public projection, internet art, durational live installation, or a performance of fixed length.†
Jeffery and Morrissey have presented throughout the US, UK, and Europe with recent venues including ASU Art Museum, AZ, Happiness Project as part of 6018North, Mutualisms at Co-Prosperity Sphere, the Cathedral Quarter in the city of Lincoln, UK (commissioned performance distributed throughout multiple outdoor sites), Hyde Park Art Center (Chicago), Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Center of Contemporary Culture Barcelona, Bergen Art Museum, House of World Cultures (Berlin), Chicago Cultural Center, and the Ontological-Hysteric Theater in NYC. Both artists teach at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and were members of the seminal international performance collective Goat Island.
