Jasmine Liaw is a queer emerging Chinese-Canadian interdisciplinary artist in dance performance, new media art, and experimental film. Bicoastal, she is based in so-called Toronto and Vancouver. Her practice focuses on the interconnections of conceptual realms of dance and digital/new media landscapes. As an emerging artist, she is compelled to explore her contemporary views of Asian diaspora, queerness, and environmental anxiety. She is the Artistic Associate of Chimerik 似不像 Collective, working in interdisciplinary research and creation, and a member of Shoes Off Collective, an emerging artist community in Toronto. In 2020, she graduated with Distinction at the Conteur Academy under the artistic direction of Eryn Waltman. Her recent collaborations and presentations include RT Collective Commission Film Program in partnership with Toronto Dance Theatre, in conjunction with Chimerik's project "Ritual Spective,” Frog in Hand's touring Full Body Exhibit, adelheid dance projects, Chimerik/Theatre Passe Muraille: Digital Creators Lab, Gallery TPW's The Parkettes Projects with Ronnie Clarke, Rumble Theatre, Dawson City International Film Festival, Florence Contemporary Art Gallery, and Quarantine Qapsule partnered with Emily Carr University Library, Lonely Artists Productions, and Myseum of Toronto. She is a 2022 Artworkx Toronto Spotlight Artist. Jasmine is grateful to be F-O-R-M Recorded Movement Society’s Artist-in-Residence within their Technology and Interaction Program in partnership with Charles Street Video, exploring her latest installation work.
Description of Project:
calling tidal is a work-in-progress exhibition, formally known as SONIC COLOUR
This residency investigates paralinguistic communication with water and landforms, addressing environmental stress and climate anxiety issued from capitalist customs of power and territory. By interactively exploring lower registers of volume and gesture, the installation utilizes technology to focus on reflective perceptions of water bodies allowing viewers to become a part of the work and meditate on human insensitivities towards the natural world. Thinking about the holding of and supply of water, calling tidal interconnects widespread political spheres that challenge human presence with the power of the natural world. As a multisensory presentation system combining real-time interaction and visual sensitivity, calling tidal is a responding space questioning the balance and navigation of “self” and “site” – through the viewer’s presence, movement and availability to sit with nature-inspired technology.
Experimenting with cybernetic spaces where movement becomes communicative through audio-visual responses, viewers will be able to experience from March 22-26th!
