John Boehme

Born in California and currently residing in British Columbia, John G. Boehme’s work integrates new practices with a trans-disciplinary approach, often incorporating the vocabulary of sculpture and painting, photography, video, digital technology, and installation. John’s performance work is often driven by observations of some of Western society’s less considered compulsions. Looking into the performance of gender, specifically masculinity, the valorization of labour, the pursuit of leisure, and the marshalling of amity, John explores language and paralanguage, the spoken and gestural aspects of human communication. Over the past 13 years, John has performed across Canada and internationally. John teaches various practices and disciplines at Camosun College, and Brentwood College at the University of Victoria.
