March 3rd, 3-430pm | PS1 MOMA Tattoo Ritual | Collaboration with Tamara
Santibañez & Jinhee Kwak, Curated by Doreen Garner| MoMA PS1 22-25 Jackson Avenue Queens, NY 11101 | BUY TICKETS HERE In this new commission, tattoo artist and sculptor Doreen Garner explores the pain and trauma bodies endure during the practice of tattooing as ink and needles penetrate human skin. Using an EEG machine to collect data on the physical transformation of bodies as they are tattooed live in the VW Dome—from the release of endorphins and adrenaline to altered heart rates—Garner translates this quantitative information into visual environments, implicating data-collecting machines as artistic collaborators. The result is both clinical and corporeal, collapsing boundaries between the surface of the body and organs below the skin. Garner is joined by Anderson Luna, Tommy Martinez, and Tamara Santibañez for a series of performative vignettes.
