“Over the years that the way I pursue my work as been called amateur. Found objects and donated equipment have become my jam and I realize an unending burning desire to tell stories through any means possible. I take it a compliment as I will always been an amateur artist in the true sense of the word. I do my work for the sheer love and hunger of it, and I will never stop. Through volume I am becoming practised with a body of film, installation and performance work. I feel lucky that money will never be a motivator of my creative output.” -The Ubermarionette 2020

Lisa Anita Wegner is a Toronto-based storyteller, performer, actor, artist, performance artist, podcaster and filmmaker. After a breakdown at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, Lisa received a diagnosis of Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD). After many years of needing a lot of experiencing exhaustion and brain fog – and just thinking she was “tired and extremely bendy,” Lisa was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.

Lisa chats with Shaunna about creating through her mental and physical health issues, the artistic milestones she’s accomplished and her influences from Annie to Lady Gaga to David Bowie, being reflected in She’s Gotta Have It and Rushmore, and the soothing rewatchability of United States of Tara, Transparent and I Love Dick.

Lisa Anita Wegner’s performance art piece, Intangible Adorations, will be showing as part of Workman Arts’ Rendezvous With Madness Festival. In its 27th year, Rendezvous With Madness is the largest mental health festival in the world, showcasing film, art, comedy and much more, beginning on World Mental Health Day (October 10) through October 20th. To learn more about the festival and to purchase tickets to Intangible Adorations, as well as their other events, please visit workmanarts.com/rendezvous-with-madness/

In Toronto Canada, an arrogant performance artist declares themself amazing while refusing to show any facial expression.

 

When we reached out to the haus of dada for comment we received the following message in German via telegraph from curator Fritz Snitz. “Thin(k) Blank Human only does private performances for close friends, artists and cherished audience members and is not interested in speaking with you peoples.” -Ritzy Fritzy

Artist Would Rather Give Ownership of Her Work to Those Who Inspire, Than Those Who Can Pay.

Akhilanda Collaborative is a new creative collective based in Toronto Canada. It began with a circus and film collaboration for MASHUP, a Hercinia Arts Collective Event curated by Kirsten Leila Edwards. Click the link to read the story of how “the way back home” came together and who is involved.

Here is a teaser of “the way back home” Day of Delight performance shot and edited by Tarquin Richards.

I felt a deep therapeutic need to continue to collaborate with this group. We truly are more than the sum of our parts. When we decided to move ahead we were stuck for an organization name. It was because we were missing someone. As well as Ashley Hurlock, Tamara Arenovich, Lisa Anita Wegner and Ray Cammaert we added Mary-Margaret Scrimger. Here she is below.

And then we were complete. We immediately started a steady stream of creative projects. Live performances, large scale art installations and films. For me this is the ideal addition to my therapeutic art practise. A group who is creatively open, nurturing and understands the emotional landscape. This is work that heals me.

I wanted to post some teaser images and a video study from our blue screen shoot of the other day. Projects will be announced here and on our Facebook page.

Consciously or unconsciously, in your daily routine you operate with great understanding of the overall patterns, and you act with more foresight and consideration than usual. You. Yeah you.
