Cara Viaggio
2007, 13:18 min. (video, color, sound)

My performance work evolved out of my training as both a dancer and visual artist.  These two disciplines have fostered my ongoing relationship to the mirror, and to my sense of self, or selves—initially in the mirrors of the dance and rehearsal studios, and eventually in an ongoing practice of self-portraiture. 

With Cara Viaggio I have continued my practice of examining, exploring, and expanding the possibilities of my instrument as a performer--the visual/kinetic/aural/dramatic body, as well as the intersection between performance and visual art, between the ephemeral and the tangible.  Instead of the mirror--or an audience--I here use the camera.  These video vignettes are intimate explorations of the heightened moment that Caravaggio so beautifully articulated; in addition to arriving at a recognizable semblance of these moments—my capacity to replicate the imagery in his paintings—I inhabit the moments both leading up, and following, these points, and flow in and out of “character.”
