PERFform: Performance Art Tour / Linda Rae Dornan & Mathieu Léger
February 28, 2017 - 7:30pm

At Thunder & Lightning Ltd, 23 Bridge Street.

Between 20 January to 28 February 2017, Galerie Sans Nom presents PERFform, a Performance Art Tour in the province of New Brunswick. This tour will feature two New Brunswick artists who have established practices in performance art: Linda Rae Dornan (Sackville) and Mathieu Léger (Moncton). PERFform aims to bring performance art throughout the province with this tour, hoping to disseminate an artistic practice that is more obscure from the tradition of visual arts. Made possible through a Touring Grant from the Ministry of Tourism, Heritage, and Culture of the Province of New Brunswick, this tour will bring the artists to 9 communities throughout the province. The artists have prepared a series of performances created specifically for the first tour of its kind in New Brunswick.

Beth Frey
April 30, 2017 - June 3, 2017

Beth Frey is a Montreal-based artist working in drawing, sculpture, installation and performance. Using humour and pathos, Frey examines the boundaries and ruptures of the body as sites of growth and creativity vis-a-vis the boundaries and ruptures intrinsic to the art objects she creates.

Marco D’Andrea
June 25, 2017 - July 29, 2017

Born in Ontario, Canada, D’Andrea grew up in the small town of Sharon. In this semi-rural community the legacy of the 1970s – long hair, big cars, loud stereo systems and hard rock on vinyl – still had influence. Sound had weight and dimension; D’Andrea has strong memories of lying on the floor listening to Deep Purple records, feeling the bass in his body and imagining different worlds.
