Isemond the Tailor makes a bonnet for her friend the goose. A monster takes over the old castle and people start to disappear.
Xander Marro is an artist, community activist, performer and filmmaker ‘steeped in the underground’ of Providence, RI. As co-founder of the Dirt Palace, a feminist art collective, Marro is equally diverse in her artistic practices. Her work ranges from printmaking to puppetry to performance to film animation and installation and is loosely gathered under a distinctive sensibility that has been described as “a blend of girly Victorian dreaming, Monty Python cartoons, Russian onion domes, beehive hairdos, Pee Wee’s Playhouse, Barbarella, and Dr. Seuss” (Greg Cook, Boston Pheonix) Marro’s work is generally low-tech and handmade and embedded with a community of collective art-making. Typically using arcane pieces of visual culture to create strange and fantastic worlds, this almost Luddite approach presents an alternative to today’s fast-paced media-driven environments.” – Dina Deitsch, Curator of Contemporary Art at DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum
Mat Brinkman (aka Matt Brinkman, Meerk Puffy, Mystery Brinkman, Brinkman, Brinkmangler, Mucid Cuspidor...) (b. 1973) is an artist and electronic musician from Texas. He was a creator of the Fort Thunder artist live-work space in Providence, RI. He recorded with the bands Mindflayer and Forcefield, who performed at the 2002 Whitney Biennial. In 2000, his Teratoid Heights comic was published by Highwater Books. Through his anonymous and pseudonymous works, he, like Bruce Conner and Marcel Duchamp before him, seems to be concerned with issues of artistic credit and its relation to artistic output. His musical performances have incorporated aspects of circuit bending and drum and bass.
