Tatiana Istomina, Helene's Story (work in progress, film still), 2016-17;
Shanti Grumbine, The Last Color: A Reliquary (performance still), 2016

In Shanti Grumbine’s performative reading, The Last Color: A Reliquary, the artist recites text that imagines a post-apocalyptic collapse of language and the rediscovery of communion through engagement with the plastic sleeves that protect the daily newspaper. Tatiana Istomina will present an excerpt of the work in progress, Helene’s Story, a collaborative multimedia project she is creating with Montreal-based puppet artist Mona Sharma. Following the performances, exhibition curator Gabriel de Guzman will lead a conversation with Grumbine and Istomina. They will discuss how the artists’ performance projects add another dimension to their visual art pieces on view in the gallery and how they relate to ongoing themes in their overall work. The artists will also talk about shared topics of interest, including the use of abstract symbols in language and for communicating beliefs and dogma.

Shanti Grumbine is a Brooklyn-based visual artist who has exhibited nationally and internationally, including at venues such as The Bronx Museum, Center for Contemporary Arts Santa Fe, A.I.R Gallery, Magnan Metz Gallery, Planthouse Gallery, and International Print Center New York.
