London-based performance artist Poppy Jackson will discuss her recent research into the feminist performance scenes of Chicago and New York during her British Council and Arts Council England Artists' International Development Fund project Transatlantic Performance Practice.
 
The gathering will include introductions to the practices of the US-based artists participating in this project and a screening of works presented at Queer New York International Arts Festival, Grace Exhibition Space (NYC), Defibrillator Performance Art Gallery (Chicago) and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Attendees will consider the future of feminist body-based performance practice and be invited to join a UK-US network for exchanges and opportunities which the project is cultivating.

The Artist:

Poppy Jackson makes actionist work exploring the female body as an autonomous zone. Her paintings and live performances apply a grunge aesthetic to the Western iconographic tradition, using a methodology of violence as creative and transformational catalyst. Poppy’s ongoing collaboration with Nina Arsenault aims to 'explode gender through mind, body and spirit.' Her current research considers the menstruating body as inherently performic.

Poppy completed her BA at Dartington College of Arts and MA at Goldsmiths University. Her work has been supported by Arts Council England and the British Council and presented internationally. She is an Associate Artist of ]performance s p a c e [.
