Hosted by Edge Zones Art Gallery, Miami’s leading performance art venue, and PerForMIA, created and directed by Charo Oquet, NeXus will present new performances by local, national, and international artists selected from a world-wide open call.
For its first edition, NeXus curatorial theme explores and treat notions of human (dis)connections, personal binds, social (re)attachments, misplaced identities, and focal (dis)placements. As a new initiative, NeXus will bring diverse manifestations of performance art where the body is at the center of artistic expression, corporeal examination, and challenging execution.

Sienna Reid’s pen and ink drawings on paper reflect on the words that women (and their intersectional community) are called when the intention is to demean them and assassinate their character.
The words originate in the world of subjective fantasy, but are used as if they are factual and based in reality. They are words that are impossible to counter, much like how the woman accused of being a witch in the past would be spared if she drowned, but would be convicted if she swam.
Reid’s work claims the words that women are called and makes them our own, without shame, emboldened and empowered.
A self described Homo Sapiens, dives into the unknown with eyes wide open exploring numerous mediums to dissect the beautiful questions our world gives birth to.
Eva‘s work incorporates a variety of cultural influences from her native Germany, including Bauhaus and Modernism.
Graphic design and fine art evolved into her main medium: photography.
The naked human body in all forms and shapes is the focus of her work. “It’s the visual essence of being human”.
Eva displays a deep fascination with androgyny and how our perceptions of gender conformity and transgression are expressed, gender and race convergence and divergence. She is always challenging her viewers to look more deeply and question their judgments.

About his females:
He admires the bravery these celebrities had to backpedal out of scandals from the spot light.
Centered around processes of restriction and experimentation, Eva’s oil paintings contain abstracted narratives built upon various “intimate inanimate” relationships using glazes and/or impasto techniques.

Sculptures are my main passion in art, I enjoy the physical aspect of bringing a concept, an image, a portrait into the 3dimensional form.
Shaping clay or carving into materials, it all represents a joy of bringing out the shape of an object.
The above sculptures were created with the Spaeth Design team for Barnes & Noble New York in August 2015. They are 3/4 life size and are structured to hold their books on display in their windows and display areas.
