We are pleased to welcome Alexis O’Hara for an original performance to celebrate the closing of the exhibition DOCUMENT XXL curated by Nelson Henricks.
O’Hara will explore texts from artworks by Jenny Holzer and Adrian Piper using voice and electronic sound within the performance.
Alexis O’Hara (b. 1969) is a Montreal-based transdisciplinary performer who explores language through voice and performance, via audio (live and recorded), video and installation. Combining electronic experimentation with a dark, critical strain of humour, O’Hara generates discomfort and curiosity in her audience, luring them in with pop hooks and repelling them with distortion and dissonant sounds. A fixture of the Montreal cabaret scene since 1997, O’Hara’s polyvalence in both medium and gender performance opens the scope of her work to both failure, and connection.
