Toronto... Fado is pleased to present HOME REPAIR, featuring the Regina-based performance art collective "One Night Only". HOME REPAIR will feature six simultaneous performances in an empty apartment building, focusing on ideas of communication and relationships within domestic spaces. 

Working collectively, the six members of One Night Only create individual performances on a common theme that act and react in relation to each other. The collective begins each project by agreeing on a common set of parameters. How each member chooses to fulfill, interpret or subtly circumvent the established rules becomes the basis of their developing dialogue, resulting in a multilayered and multi-perspectived approach.

Note that in addition to the performances, the artists will be part of a public discussion sponsored by Blank Slate at Karen Schreiber Gallery on February 22. The discussion is part of Life=Art=Life, a weekend of performances and talks featuring Louise Liliefeldt, Richard Martel, Tehching Hsieh and Kristine Stiles. Life=Art=Life is a Blank Slate presentation with support from the 7a*11d International Festival of Performance Art.

About the artists 

One Night Only was formed as a six-member performance art collective of new and emerging Regina-based artists in 2002. Interested in installation-based and site-specific performances, the collective has presented a series of events in Regina, Vancouver, and now Toronto. 

Born and raised in Saskatchewan, Adam Budd is a recent graduate of the BFA Media Production program at the University of Regina, where his film "Avery Jones" won Best Graduating Film and Director awards from the University. His video performances include U/O, Blair and Adam, Moral Relativism, and Dear Rejeanne.

Felipe Diaz is a Regina based artist whose practice includes painting, installation, video and performance. Felipe explores issues of identity as it is formed along political, cultural and social lines. He has worked for a variety of organizations including the Saskatchewan Filmpool, New Dance Horizons and, currently, the Dunlop Art Gallery. Felipe is currently finishing his Masters of Fine Arts at the University of Regina. 

Blair Fornwald is a Regina-based interdisciplinary artist whose work encompasses a variety of media, primarily performance, installation, and video. In 2002, she graduated with a BFA in intermedia from the University of Regina and she is currently pursuing a Bachelors degree in art history. She is the visual arts teacher of the Preschool Fine Arts Co-op. Her most recent projects include Chair Garden, a semi-permanent outdoor installation. 

Regina based visual artist Tanis Keiner is a B.F.A graduate of sculpture from the University of Regina. In the final year of her program she studied intermedia, and has since continued to work in video, sound, writing and performance. Timid and shy, her performance pieces reflect her introverted nature.

Tammy McGrath is a multimedia installation, web and performance artist. She was a part of GROUP performance art collective before joining the One Night Only ensemble. McGrath is the initiator of Mountain Standard Time performative art festival, Space for Space performative art collective and EX 120, a continuous five day for 24 hours a day performative art festival in Calgary. She has written for independent magazines such as filling station and Lola. 

Anna Scott holds a BFA from the University of Manitoba and an MFA from the University of Regina. Currently employed as Gallery Coordinator at Neutral Ground Artist-Run Centre, she has exhibited her textile-based installation at various Canadian institutions since 1999. Her installations, performances, interventions, drawings, animation and web art contain a common thread of humour. She recently completed a residency at the University of Regina. Her most recent work, what we have here is a failure to , is an electronic installation that explores the concept of communication breakdown.

Friday, February 20th, 7:30pm: Louise Liliefeldt and Richard Martel
Saturday, February 21st, 7:30pm: Tehching Hsieh and Kristine Stiles
Sunday, February 22nd, 2:00pm: Panel Discussion

Presented by Blank Slate at Karen Schreiber Gallery
Co-sponsored by 7a*11d and Fado.
25 Morrow Ave #302, Toronto, ON M6R 2H9, 416-538-5832

Life=Art=Life is designed to be an exploratory forum evaluating the past and present trends of performance art in the context of everyday life.

Under the auspices of Blank Slate, the weekend event will bring together local and international artists and theorists to present and discuss their work. The artists include local tableau-vivant diva, Louise Liliefeldt; art-action ambassador Richard Martel from Quebec City; writer, professor and Dr. of destruction and art theory Kristine Stiles from North Carolina; and self declared non-artist Tehching Hsieh from New York City forever famous for his one year performances. Among guests at the Sunday panel discussion will be One Night Only, a Regina based performance art collective, in Toronto for their event „Home Repair‰ hosted by Fado. The six members of the group are Adam Budd, Felipe Diaz, Blair Fornwald, Tanis Keiner, Tammy McGrath, and Anna Scott. Life=Art=Life is curated by neoist addict Istvan Kantor.

Today it seems to us, that performance art, as a rebellious and revolutionary force, has completed its mandate by infiltrating every aspect of life. The life=art=life theory, historically supported by the avant garde, has never been more relevant than today.

If it is true that performance art, as a social engine and generator of change, has accomplished its mission, then what is its&Mac226; place in current artistic activities and everyday life?

Blank Slate hosts forums for discussions, critical talks, conferences, workshops and interdisciplinary events, conducted in a non-intimidating environment. Participants are encouraged to freely express their ideas concerning today's artistic activities, new trends, theoretical issues and practical methods. The purpose of Blank Slate is to encourage everyone in the exploration of creative ideas and critical thinking, blending together science, technology, philosophy, politics and art.

This is event is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts.

Fado Board member Randy Gledhill, who attended the 2003 organizing meeting of IAPAO at Essen writes:

here are some thoughts on the importance of the conference in Bandung
because of its location and social dynamic
this meeting promises to include people from some interesting places
politically charged cultural activists will use this forum to demonstrate, talk, exchange, build
new notions of representation and inclusivity will dominate the agenda
discourse about the new world order will open
I think participation is essential
I am very interested to attend it
to contribute to this process
to learn

performance art is physical
performance art is temporal
performance art is ephemeral
performance art is political
performance art organizers are activists
networking with other performance art activists
to promote and present subversive physical actions
to enlighten and politicize through the realization of performance art activity

performative artmaking is no longer an academic exercise steeped in privilege
new art participation is creating a new world art
the institutions that historically have marginalized and trivialized performance activity
now afford a unique cultural diplomatic immunity
from oppression and persecution
the performance art arena provides a political, emotional, intellectual safe-zone for dissent
to actualize hot issues such as sexuality, diaspora, globalization, displacement, statelessness, exploitation, empirism, sanctioned terror, etc., etc.

I believe in the concept of IAPAO
I think it is revolutionary
and contributes to a global network
to create a facilitating organism
to accommodate opportunity
I don’t care how efficient or inefficient it is
it will move ahead at its own speed
maybe IAPAO is composed of the right people
maybe it is the wrong people
the attempt to promote international networking can only be positive
I whole-heartedly support this

... here is an opportunity to embrace and develop new activity
to hear new intellectual concerns
from representatives of a culturally diverse world
to participate in a politically charged discourse
with artists from elsewhere
to interact about what performance and representation mean
to strategize and facilitate new activity
to explore new international opportunity for our homegrown talent
lets give the future the benefit of the doubt
