Tatiana Nya Ford
Actor/Deviser: Yoru @ Wilbumore
Artist Tatiana Nya Ford is interested in creative processes that require immense and intricate intimacy, vulnerability, and truth and artworks that may not have finality and are not associated with traditional standards of beauty or worth. “If we accept the idea that self-expression doesn’t have to be pleasant and doesn’t have to mimic a commercial form, or process, then what are the limits of that?” Ford asks. Interested in the intersectionality of identity and darker themes of disguising trauma, Tatiana Nya Ford tries to convey the link between womanhood and having a voyeuristic relationship with pain, the universal impulse to split oneself into a million pieces for the ease of someone else’s consumption, and her own inclination to make any experience of her self a carefully crafted performance piece.
