Amy Kaps / USA · Performance
As an interdisciplinary artist possessing a predilection for the abstract and surreal while emphasizing the human form and condition, I present a psychological puzzle.
Highly conceptual with the intention of altering perception and provoking thought, my challenge is to decipher the common denominators, recognizing the similarities within our differences that connect us regardless of age, race or gender. As a solo performer, a seemingly self-indulgent display of personal history yields to an amorphic universal body in an attempt to elevate the banal to the beautiful. I play with the boundaries of my body. A body. Anybody.
Working in the realms of performance, video, photography, music and words in the United States, Europe and Asia, Amy Kaps was born in Brooklyn, NY and currently resides in Venice, California.
