Fool for Love: An afternoon of performance
Tzarinas of the Plane
Saturday April 1st, 4pm - 7pm
Detroit-based artists, Faina Lerman (Latvia) and Bridget Michael (Detroit, MI) have been performing together as Tzarinas of the Plane since 2008. They are multi-media performance artists whose work mixes disciplines as well as audiences. Fueled by site-specific environments and the likeness of individual thought and expression, they come together to explore and create visually physical stories about human nature, relationships, ritual and play. 2015 Kresge Foundation Visual Arts Fellows, they have performed in many of Detroit’s alternative art spaces, on street corners, in abandoned homes, in backyards, as part of artist installations, as well as at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, Ox-Bow School of Art and the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh.
Michael Mahalchick is a performance artist based in New York.
"It's not easy to characterize Michael Mahalchick's work, a sprawling project containing multitudes of forms and expression, including painting, collage, found-object assemblages that hang on the wall or stand on the floor, shamanistic performances and abject musical solos, as well as breakfast foodstuffs, cooking-as-performance, and olfactory sensations and sound."

Mahalchick is represented by Canada Gallery. He is currently in residence at The Kitchen.

Domenica Garcia is a filmmaker and visual artist from Mexico City, currently based on New York. Through the exploration of the mundane, her work encapsulates the complexity of human emotion. With a hyperbolic language she exposes the intimacy within day-to-day, providing greater relevance to the human experience.
Jordan Boyce is an artist from NYC currently exploring unconventional means to pleasure, ultimately interested in underscoring the very private nature of what brings us joy.
