Telematic is pleased to present Pacific Terminus , a performance residency, featuring work by New York Choreographer and Performance Artist, Jon Kinzel.

When first emerging as a choreographer in the 1990’s, Kinzel frequently found himself performing in eccentric downtown spaces. Theaters, galleries, lofts, and clubs, typically carved out of larger structures, were wildly varied in shape and size. The spaces were challenging. They required him to be adaptable. But they also brought to light the features of the performance itself: spatial proportions, audience positions, and sound environments. What first appeared as an obstacle, Kinzel recognized as a creative opportunity. He learned to approach his performances as temporary installations, in which drawings and other forms of mark making, executed during the dance, served to situate him and his audience within a mutable, embodied social space. At the same time, Kinzel has long sustained a drawing practice, both as a tool in his choreography and as an end-in-itself. And, in recent years, he has begun to exhibit in galleries, constructing installation-like environments through durational performances, which entail a combination of movement, mark-making, and material manipulation, to orchestrate somatic social encounters.
For Pacific Terminus, Kinzel will bring his practice to bear on considerations of the time before and the time after the advent of the personal computer, the Internet, and the smart phone. Working remotely in collaboration with conceptual artist, Bob Ajar, he will produce a loose collection of drawings and paintings, video, sculpture, digital art, and dance forms, which will variously address technology’s effects on visual culture, social relationships, performance, and the presentation of the moving body.

Bio: Jon Kinzel has received critical accolades for his work at The Kitchen, The Chocolate Factory, La MaMa, Danspace Project, Dublin Dance Festival, Gibney Dance/Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center; and The Invisible Dog Arts Center. He has contributed to publications such as SCHIZM Magazine, MR Performance Journal , and PAJ: a journal of performance and art ; received support from Harkness, Puffin, and Mertz Gilmore foundations; and held residencies at Gibney, The Yard, NYLA, EMPAC, BAX, and Jacob’s Pillow. He feels fortunate to have collaborated with influential contemporary artists, such as Jodi Melnick, Jennifer Miller, Cathy
Weis, Ronnarong Khampha, Elena Demyanenko, Yvonne Rainer, Emily Coates, Jean Butler , and Matthew Barney. He has taught at Barnard, NYU, Yale, GWU, LIU, UMASS Amherst, Emerson, Vassar, The New School, New York Studio School, Merce Cunningham Trust, Lincoln Center Education, Tsekh in Moscow, and is a faculty member at Movement Research.
