In residence Arti will create a weighted quilt. Through fiber arts Arti will explore the themes of disability, labour, sexuality and interdependence.
Arti Mehta is a queer, genderqueer, South Asian, Buddhist, raised working class, Toronto-based, fibro femme who performs everything from politicized Bollywood burlesque to multi-media performance art. Arti’s performance employs video, animation, prose and movement to express themes of disability, somatics, spirituality, trauma, intergenerational trauma, epigenetics, sexual abuse, race, class, gender and sexuality/kink.
