Artist Bio: Karly Mortimer & MacKenzie Boyle

Though we have separate art practices, we find inescapable intersects in our work, which manifest through our performance art practice. Beauty has become ungraspable. Sublime beauty was once only instigated by nature, but has become something that constantly bombards our lives through advertising, television and print media. In our combined art practice we are looking for a so-called “third space” that exists without all of this outside stimulation. In our performance work we find our bodies, an unobstructed, quiet space to express our own images and to ask questions about all of this out side information. Reducing the noise allows us to reduce ourselves to a point of gesture and extreme presence; reducing to a point where we become an image. At this point we can begin telling without saying.
