Anansi kNOwBody

A recent MFA graduate of Meadows School of the Arts at Southern Methodist University, Anansi's work offers perspective through a lens of cynicism. By means of conceptualization, appropriation, image, and sound manipulation, visceral/violent performance and audience control, he exposes visible and invisible power dynamics embedded in our society. Anansi attempts to guide viewers to assume a different interpretation than one they may already possess, by setting parameters, both physical and cognitive in order to view his work. In January 2015, Anansi did a performance titled "Punch Piece," a 9 minute test of endurance addressing outlets of rage at Beefhaus gallery in Dallas, TX. His piece "Cocaine Column/Build and Destroy," remnants of a performance comprised of 425 bricks made to resemble cocaine packages, was a featured work in the Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas, 2015 finalist completion.
