It's Not a Lie if You Believe It

Current apexart resident British artist KELLY WARMAN, and MATTHEW LYONS, curator for the Kitchen, discuss the translation of the written word into performative, mediated and cinematic space, focusing on contemporary literature and film that has evolved from the novel form. In addition, Kelly Warman will read excerpts from her residency diary.

  Kelly Warman is a British born artist based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Before completing her MFA at the Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam, Kelly graduated with a BA (Hons) from Dartington College of Arts, Dartington and a diploma from Chelsea College of Art, London, UK. Kelly's formation is related to a larger understanding of a culture that evolves around self-performance, she is particularly interested in the translation of the interior monologue into the cinematic space. Warman's work investigates the idea of a commodity-person through staged performance and cinematic video works. Kelly Warman was recommended by Anselm Franke, curator and writer, Artistic Director of Extra City Center for Contemporary Art in Antwerp, Belgium.

Matthew Lyons is Curator at The Kitchen, NY, where he has organized solo exhibitions by Sara Greenberger Rafferty, Glen Fogel, Vlatka Horvat, Jenny Perlin, and Mika Tajima as well as performances by Final Fantasy, Jutta Koether, Aki Onda, and robbinschilds, among others. His writing has appeared in ASPECT, Flash Art, Movement Research Performance Journal, and he was a contributing author for WORK THE ROOM: A Handbook of Performance Strategies.
