Through my form of “self-puppetry” I am exploring the identity of the artist and process of the art.. This video uses fabrics, figures and miniature sets, to create an enchanting operatic vision. Influenced by the work of Remedios Varo, assemblages of Hannah Hoch, the supernatural world of the Japanese Noh theater, and a fascination with puppets and dolls.
Kathy Rose’s work has evolved from her pioneering performance work, combining dance with film/video to her current surreal performance video spectacles, and dance videos. Rose is a Guggenheim Fellow in Performance Art, and has exhibited her videos at Dance on Camera-Lincoln Center, The American Dance Festival, IL COREOGRAFO ELETTRONICO/Naples,etc. She also creates projection design for architects.
