2007
project:rendition: a collaborative project by artists Joy Episalla, Carrie Moyer and Carrie Yamaoka, known as JC2. The exhibition takes as its focal point the practice of “rendering” or making people disappear, either literally—as in the “extraordinary renditions” practiced by the Bush Administration— or more indirectly by rendering them politically and existentially mute. The exhibition is augmented by a curated series of performances that use the gallery installation as an arena in which the performer is fully audible and partially visible to the audience, while the audience remains invisible to the performer. Performers include: Jake Araujo-Simon, Anna Blume, William Allen, David Levi Strauss, Cindy Carr and Kay Turner. Momenta Art, Brooklyn, New York. (multiple/poster), www.projectrendition.info
