Comfort Station presents Like a House on Fire, a weekend-long festival centering time-based work that wields light within SCAFFOLD. Ruby Que, Ále Campos, and Florence Woolley each present new work that responds to the possibilities of Comfort Station’s SCAFFOLD structure. For this weekend only, SCAFFOLD acts as a frame across which fabric is stretched, a blank canvas for the artists to transform with light.
Ále Campos (also known as Celeste) is a multi-disciplinary artist and performer currently based in Chicago, IL where they recently received an MFA in Performance from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago. Their body of work is elastic in nature, stretching across a variety of modalities, mediums and presentational formats. They take a fluid, non-binary approach to making, generating live performances, which are often processed through the virtual stream and the camera, as well as works encompassing sculpture, text, sound, video and print media. At the core of their studio practice rests a commitment to drag, the drag community and their persona.
