Alastair Noble

Alastair Noble is an environmental/installation artist and printmaker from the UK that has lived and worked in New York City for over 30 years. He has exhibited extensively nationally and internationally including Peru, Chile, Bulgaria and the UK. His artistic practice is a response to architecture and the natural environment, and often reflects on particular sites in the context of poetry and literature. The writings of Mallarmé, Marinetti, Mayakovsky, Wittgenstein, Poe and Daumal have been the genesis of numerous works. The short story by Argentine author Borges On the Exactitude in Science has been the catalyst for recent projects entitled Mapping Arcadia and a Topography of Place – an on-going series of environmental sculptural projects that I have evolved to investigate an alternative means to map the landscape.

Periodically, he writes on sculpture and architecture for international sculpture magazines and journals. Additionally, he curates and organizes exhibitions that complement his own research. He has taught and lectured at numerous colleges, universities and public institutions.

Amir Parsa

Amir Parsa, an internationally acclaimed writer, poet and translator, Parsa is the author of seventeen literary books, including Kobolierrot, Feu L’encre/Fable, Drive-by Cannibalism in the Baroque Tradition, Erre, and L’opéra minora, a 440-page multilingual work that is in the MoMA Library Artists’ Books collection and in the Rare Books Collection of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.

An uncategorizable body of work, his plurilingual oeuvre—written in English, French, Farsi and Spanish and various hybrids—constitutes a radical polyphonic enterprise that puts into question national, cultural and aesthetic attachments while fashioning new genres, forms and even species of literary artifacts. These provocative works employ various registers of textuality, fuse discourses to fashion new ones, and explore possibilities unique to each language and to literature as a whole. His writings in both English and French have been anthologized, and he has contributed to a number of print and online publications, including Fiction International, Textpiece, Guernica, Armenian Poetry Project and a mash-up issue of Madhatters’ Review and Bunk Magazine.

His translations include Bruno Durocher-Kaminski’s And They Were Writing Their History, and the first two books of Nadia Tueni, which appeared under the title The Blond Texts & The Age of Embers. Two books are being reissued in 2015 by UpSet Press—Drive-by Cannibalism in the Baroque Tradition and Tractatüus Philosophiká-Poeticüus, a theory of artistic creation that also reads like a labyrinthine story. Simultaneously in 2015, he launched, with Le Chaise (Yes, Le), the ‘Clandies’ (more formally classified as FoCD—Folios for the Clandestine Diffusions), full-blown works that nevertheless are most poignantly characterized by one particular property, their clandestine diffusions. Slated for limited dissemination in 2016 is another ‘Clandie’, One day Soon I Will Be the New Emperor of the New Persian Empire Just You Wait and See (And We Will All Live Happily Ever After I Promise).

His curatorial interjections, conceptual pieces, artistic interventions, and critical educational praxis have taken place in a host of public spaces, organizations, universities and environments. A former Lecturer and Educator at The Museum of Modern Art, Amir was born in Tehran, educated at French international schools and at Princeton and Columbia universities, and is currently based in New York. A former Chairperson and Acting Associate Dean at Pratt Institute, he is currently an Associate Professor at Pratt, where he also directs trans/post/neodisciplinary initiatives in the Office of the Provost. During his residency, Amir will be working on the manifesto of The New Definitely Post/Transnational and Mostly Portable Open Epic, as Rendered by the Elastic Circus of the Revolution, which is comprised of cantos and fragments constituting an on-going multilingual scriptural epic. Since 2007, pieces have been featured at The Bowery Poetry Club and The Riverside Church, during the Uncomun Festival, the Engendered Festival, and the Dumbo Arts Festival in New York, at the Baroquissimo Festival in Puebla, Mexico, and the Paris en toutes lettres festival in Paris in 2010, among other venues. These poetic fragments unfold over time on multiple platforms, in multiple arenas and spaces (private and public), and through various scriptural strategies—from the traditional (handwritten sheets and books) to the new (electronic, web). A theoretical apparatus and a critical enterprise engaged with the history and forms of literature and the reading phenomenon, the work also challenges traditional modalities of publication, exhibition, commodification, dissemination and interaction.

Dages Juvelier Keates

Erin Cairns Cella and Dages Juvelier Keates met in 2010, and proceeded to dance together for Company SoGoNo, a Butoh inspired dance-theater company.  Feeling a gravitational pull towards one another, we became interested in each other’s diverse movement backgrounds, attention to somatic detail, and physiologically driven movement.  We found artistic chemistry in performance and decided to explore it in our own choreography. Those choreographic explorations have been presented through Movement Research’s Open Performance, Women in Motion’s Rooftop Salon, Fourth Arts Block’s FAB Festival, Gowanus Art and Production’s First Look, Gibney Dance’s Show and Share, CPR’s Spring Movement, and NYU’s Masters Thesis Showcase.

Approaching ourselves as “performance clay,” we have a keen interest in manipulating energy and presence; we begin our creative process from our subjective experience of performance states and build outward, threading images inside of movement forms. Adding sonic landscapes and intentionally crafting movement material, kinesthetic states are generated, which alter both our biochemistry and that of the audience. We amplify the experience of porosity as we seek to transfer affective states between each other and the other organisms who are watching. In short, we aim to change our audience through our being seen and perceived. We are driven toward intensity, immediacy, and intimacy, giving physical form to the ways we experience the world.

During our residency at Marble House Project, we will continue developing our evening-length, interdisciplinary new dance work, all i have are sensations. Contributing artists include wearable designer Natalia Roumelioti (Ntilit) and composer Jascha Narveson.

Jeannette Ehlers

Jeannette Ehlers is based in Copenhagen, Denmark. She graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts 2006. Experimental nature generally characterizes Jeannette Ehlers’s work. Image manipulation is often included in the artist’s photographic and video based works. On these changeable terms meaning and identity are explored, in both a sophisticated and immediate way. For years she has created cinematic universes that delve into ethnicity and identity inspired by her own Danish / West Indian background. She challenges and explores the film medium’s ability to communicate in a visually fascinating and engaging language. Creating imaginative stories with both edge and sharpness, her work still retain the broad appeal. Her pieces revolve around big questions and difficult issues, such as Denmark’s role as a slave nation – part of the Danish cultural heritage, which often gets overlooked in the general historiography. In the Spring 2014 Jeannette Ehlers had a major solo presentation of her works at Nikolaj Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center, entitled SAY IT LOUD!. Her works were also part of the group show CARIBBEAN: Crossroads of the World, Pérez Art Museum Miami as well as DAK’ART 2014, Biennale of Dakar, Senegal among more. In the Spring 2015 Jeannette Ehlers will do a solo show in Autograph ABP, London, UK.
