“untitled (it’s not ugly, it’s life or death)”
Melanie Teresa Bohrer and Pablo Vindel met during their MFA studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Over the past four years they have collaborated across time-zones,
cultures and continents. As multilinguals and makers, they explore language as material and the opacity of translation. Using the body they reexamine the fissures inbetween each other, as well as the spaces between themselves and the objects they create.
Annie Zean Dunbar is an educator, social worker, and writer. Zean has worked in multicultural communities as a program manager, survey researcher, and case manager. Her research interest include race and identity formation, trauma and reconciliation, secondary migration, and long term resettlement in the United States. Zean is a Post-goth black girl, perpetual optimist, with an affinity for commas, sing alongs, and referential humor.
