NATHANIEL SULLIVAN

Nathaniel Sullivan is a creative non-fiction artist, based in New York City. He makes documentary videos, multimedia lecture performances and site-specific guided tours. He uses these forms of truth telling to combine facts with speculative ideas in order to explore the roots of power and social control. Often, he uses one character and an event from their real life as a way into the story. He has made work about Francois Mitterrand’s rumored last meal, exploring the limits of reason, Wilt Chamberlain’s mythological sex life, in which he wrote a teenaged version of himself into the story to critique the enculturation of young men, and the semi-fictional love letters JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, to retell the story of the current financial crisis. Sometimes, he takes it to the streets. He has led a guided tour of an abandoned housing project re-imagined as a Richard Serra sculpture, conducted a seminar on desire from the back of a limousine and performed for one person at a Brooklyn Nets game.

SYLVAIN SOUKLAYE

Sylvain Souklaye is a Brooklyn based French multi-modal artist. He is obsessed with sampling intimacies about people who don't belong to a determinate identity, gender, class, colour or nationality. Sylvain Souklaye performances are a collage of individual memories which are relived for and via the audience. Self-taught, he began performing with vandalism in Lyon, and then intimate happenings, radio experimentation and action poetry. He later developed digital art installations using field recording techniques as a narrative layer while pursuing his writer’s path. Among his best known pieces are la blackline, a 5-year durational radio performance about socio-economic survival and urban absurdity, le déserteur a digital art installation dwelling on the notion of abandonment, TME a docudrama performance exploring self-inflicted amnesia and resilience and MIGRANT MARKET a remake of the slave market updated for the uber economy. Sylvain Souklaye methods characteristically involve intense physical acts as well as the use of unsettling intimacy.
