Solo Exhibition Traci Kelly _ Exhibition Curator : Tazkar Projects
“My interdisciplinary practice engages audiences in surprising ways to create open and evolving dialogues. Works often unsettle notions of corporeal and socio/political subjectivity, opening up a space for doubt around the status of the lived and material body. Intuitive work emerges in relation to specific contexts and sites, embodying the hauntings of history, the specific vernacular of place and a poetic turn of materials.”
Artist statement, 2021
Traci Kelly is an independent and interdisciplinary artist-scholar in live art practice. In her research led projects she works on “collaboration” as a praxis, embodiment and theoretical driver via cooperative, dialogical, viral and rhizomatic operatives. She values the liminal, transitional and over-looked spaces in making and thinking to create dialogues. Her aim is to deform and decentralize what is seen/accepted real and to decontaminate, reveal and critically assert aspects that are not visible or felt.
