Fawn Krieger builds fictional, body-scaled constructions that reference ecstatic belonging, release, and rupture in the home. She searches for a female architecture- one of building out and under, instead of upward and over, as she crafts her own definition of HOME MAKER. Her intimate spaces stretch to accommodate the scale of shared encounters and communal transformations.
Born in 1975, Krieger received a BFA from Parsons School of Design (1997), and an MFA from Bard College (2005). She has exhibited her work internationally and throughout the US, including Art in General in New York City, ArtCenter in Miami, Vox Populi in Philadelphia, Tilt Gallery in Portland, and NEON>fdv in Milan. Her work will appear in the 13th annual Artissima Art Fair in Torino, Italy, this fall, as part of the Fabio Paris Gallery. Krieger lives in New York City, and is currently working on a series of video vignettes called folk CHRONICLES .
Wynne Greenwood (b. 1977) lives and works in Washington State and Brooklyn, NY. Greenwood received her M.F.A. in 2004 from The Milton Avery Graduate School for the Arts at Bard College. She is a lesbian feminist video artist who makes live performances, music recordings, installations and collaborations. After studying video production and art history at Rutgers University, New Jersey, in the late 90's, Greenwood moved back to her home state of Washington and began performing the punk band Tracy + the Plastics in 2001. She toured the project extensively and in 2004 Tracy + the Plastics was invited to perform as part of the Whitney Biennial. In 2005, Greenwood was commissioned by The Kitchen, NYC, to make an evening length work, ROOM, in collaboration with sculptor Fawn Krieger. Greenwood also makes New Report, a performance video project with artist K8 Hardy. Selected performances and exhibitions include Reena Spaulings Fine Art, NYC (New Report, 2005), Whitney Biennial (2004), The Kitchen, NYC (ROOM, 2005), The Moore Space, Miami, FL (ROOM, 2006), Los Angeles Projects, LA (2006), Frye Art Museum, Seattle (2005-2006), d.i.y. art spaces and punk rock nightclubs (2001-present).
Greenwood and Krieger met while both at the Milton Avery Graduate School for the Arts at Bard College. Sharing interests in non-hiearchichal structures of sound, space and time, domestic revolutions, DIY utopias, and feminism, they began their collaboration in January of 2005 with their first ROOM commission at the Kitchen in New York City.
