Corey FogelArtist’s Statement

My current practice evolved from integrating performance with my earliest creative impulses- adolescent experiments with androgyny, color, fashion, rebellion, and humor. Previously compartmentalized personal expression, craft, and music, now co-exist to explore the sublime.

Synesthesia, sensuality, and spirituality have always led me to work instinctually with subjects that naturally attract me. I am inspired by abstract characters that exist between mediums. I create performances by transposing linear and minimalist musical structures into vibrant, multi-layered compositions of fabric, object, sound, gesture, and organic material. Many works are improvisational, and site-specific. A familiar, inviting, perhaps tongue-in-cheek trope provides a platform for more abstract manipulations, often developing into a surreal myth or ritual. Using materiality, physicality, temporality and corporeality, I engage various media to accomplish newly discovered tasks. I try to intuit the most authentic role for each of my subjects, often uncovering innately sexual, visceral relationships that mirror my behaviors as a percussionist. My recent goals are to stage and distill sculptural, video, and photographic pieces that preserve or pause rich ephemeral moments, to collapse boundaries between disciplines.
