Jeremy Saya is based in Montreal (Canada). He is a queer interdisciplinary artist whose practice integrates elements of performance, installation, sound, video and electronics. He holds a BA in Sociology from Laurentian University, and is currently studying Integrated Media at OCAD University (Ontario College of Art and Design, Toronto).
His academic background in philosophy and social science often informs his work which deals with queerness, the body, identity, vulnerability, ephemerality and interactionism. Consisting in large part of self-portraits, his practice engages experimental new media processes and emphasizes self-perception and self-representation. Recent endeavours include text-based installation, interactive sound, minimalist performance, and cheeky responses to curatorial prompts.
About the artwork
What Is It About? is a minimalist performance involving a banner to act as somewhat of a tongue-in-cheek response to the festival’s theme.
