A new collection of short stories by Zeesy Powers, with accompanying illustrations.
Open edition and limited edition with original watercolour.
Eight Stories is Zeesy Powersâ€™ first collection of short stories, written as emails to friends in 2012 and 2013. It was published with the generous support of Wil Aballe Art Projects in Vancouver.
Zeesy Powers’ performances question our relationship to the unstated rules of social interaction in our (increasingly public) private lives. Since 2007 she has been performing I Will Tell You Exactly What I Think of You, examining the desire to see ourselves reflected in another, and how this is complicated by degrees of publicity, from theatrical to digital. Her new project Common Fate involves ten dancers performing solos in a round, layering and altering meaning as music, dance and projections cycle through one another. Zeesy’s performances and videos have been shown in New York, Los Angeles, Berlin, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Mexico City, and southern Japan.
