per-son-age / persenij (noun) A person (often used to express their significance, importance, or elevated status)
Per-son-age is an exhibition of videos in which the artist is the primary performer. Historically artists such as Bruce Nauman, Adrian Piper, Hannah Wilke and Nayland Blake to name a few, have performed in “person” in their videos. This exhibition presents video where the artist is central to the work, serving as translator or interpreter of the world in which we live. The artist’s actions reveal process, depict rituals, express something profound or abstract and expose systems at work.
