ARTIST TARA MATEIK
In his videos, performances, and assemblage, he casts himself as myriad theoretical and cultural transvestites from media culture, competitive sport, and weird science. "I look for moments that confuse, destabilize, and produce tension between masculine and feminine." This practice includes regular participation in a collaborative process that fosters transfeminism—an inclusive feminism that integrates the lived experience of genderqueer people and extends important feminist concerns beyond the limits of rigidly defined conceptions of gender.
Mateik's work has shown at MOMA PS1 Greater New York Cinema, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Aurora Pictures, Houston, TX; Oberhausen Short Film Festival, Germany; and The Images Festival, Toronto, Canada.
