About the Artists: C. P. Krishnapriya and Narendran Kumar are practicing contemporary artists based out of Chennai, India. In the winter of 2016/2017 Krishnapriya co-curated and organized a large-scale Students’ Biennale exhibit in Kochi, Kerala which focused on projects from art students across India. Her exhibition won the Tata Trusts Students’ Biennale International Curator Award. Through painting, sculpture and video their work negotiates with memory, modernity, language, identity, gender and the futility of urban life. Their installation at iMPeRFeCT Gallery strives to do the same.
Ronniere Spacely's "Rumba Americano" is a visual performance inspired by the abusive relationship Latino culture and heritage has with the oppressive, opportunistic, and gentrifying natures of American Leaders. This will be a live painting performance piece. The creative process and entire execution of the work will be recorded and edited for future viewing.
Spacely is a romantic expressionist artist whose work focuses on the documentation of his creative process. Much like a scientist, Spacely experiments without anything more than a conceptual hypothesis and his ability to express himself, his primary mediums are music, video, and paint. His work is inspired by romantic and complex social situations that are often hedged to his personal life.
