Adina Bier graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA), in affiliation with Tufts University, in December of 2007, and is now performing internationally. Her work as a performance artist incorporates a wide variety of visual and conceptual art, including sound, movement, body, and texture. Her use of the body is a focal aspect of her performances. Thematically Bier�s work continuously suggests her relationships with health, feminine roles, and belief systems. Her most recent work focuses on physical limitations of the body/mind and socially constructed confines that we as individuals face on a daily basis.

Originally from Ohio, Dukes graduated from Watkins College of Art & Design in 2007 with a BFA in Fine Art. In an effort to further expose the community to the visual arts, Dukes aids in forming independent, emerging artist groups. She is the Co-Founder of the Independent Artist Collaborative, Off The Wall Art Group and has also received recognition by various publications including that of NY Arts Magazine. During her undergraduate studies, Dukes concentrated on installation, sculpture and sound. Experimentation often lends these combined mediums to act as a theatrical backdrop for her performances. Human interactions within forced ecological and social scenarios are often primary tenets within Dukes� work. Performance provides a platform in which Dukes� metaphorical re-interpretations of personal relationships can exist, perish, grow and morph. Dukes currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

The most common, stable, and reliable states of the universe are the qualities of darkness and cold. We live in a very unusual condition of relative warmth and light. We are living here (earth) -humans, spiders, grass, fish, carrots, bacteria, mice, viruses. We are all related. We need to eat each other. It�s the price of peace, beauty, security, humor, love, and hope. Our bodies, like those of all other organisms here, are communities of cells working together essentially for their own preservation. We will all become food for something someday. The sun will make our place food for itself someday. I don�t know what will eat the sun. Then it will likely become cold and dark. I take comfort in this. I like natural states.

"Dowsing" will be a performance from the Mustard Man series of performances, a vignette from his personal mythology.
Brendan Coyle has been doing performances since his studies in Sculpture at Virginia Commonwealth University circa 2001. Based in New York, he has since toured Poland, Japan and a few of the states performing and collaborating with others in a variety of venues. The performances lend themselves to the site specific, and most of them are drawn from a rich mythological world that has been brewing since his childhood and now exists amongst sculptures, text, video, performance and a comic book series.
