a sound, video and performance installation by Amanda Dannáe

Closing reception January 26, 6–10 pm, with a special live performance by the artist
‘Onism’ is the frustration of being stuck in just one body that inhabits only one place at a time. This work is a visual study of such sensations brought forth by the use of video, photo, sound, and performance.
Amanda Dannáe is an artist and musician currently based out of Albuquerque, New Mexico (USA). She grew up in Santa Fe where she enjoyed exploring the vast landscapes and culture of New Mexico. She has always had an interest in the way that humans, technology, and environments are interconnected. She has done extensive research and practice in various art modalities and the way in which they can be implemented as mechanisms for change and healing in individuals as well as those who have varying forms of trauma and disability. Her affinity for social practice and the progressive nature of the relationship between humans, technology, and environments has allowed her to create a dialogue on these parallels.
Next up is Fun-a-Day 2018, a show celebrating the art of daily practice, opening on Friday, February 9 from 6–10 pm!
