_Art Basel’s ‘Meet the artists’ series presents contemporary creatives shaping today’s cultural landscape_
In this episode of ‘Meet the artists’, we visit filmmaker, poet, and performance artist P. Staff in their Los Angeles studio. There, we glimpse into Staff’s creative process and their exploration of violence’s impact on the body, social interactions, and self-perception.
In their work, Staff trains a critical lens on the ways gender and identity are constructed and depicted in society. ‘For me it always comes back to this feeling that the body is a flashpoint, a crisis point,’ they say. ‘It’s a nexus of politics, the law, intimacy, and sensation’.
P. Staff is represented by Commonwealth and Council (Los Angeles, Mexico City). Their exhibition ‘In Ekstase’ will be on view at the Basel Kunsthalle from June 9 – September 10, 2023.
P. Staff will also take part in ‘From Constraint to Ecstasy: Reimaging Art with Tiona Nekkia McClodden and P. Staff’ during the Art Basel Conversations program. The talk will take place on June 16, 2023 at 1pm. More information available on artbasel.com.
