ON VIEW through April 30, 2015
OPENING & PERFORMANCE April 4, 2015 | 7-10pm

ArtCenter/South Florida | 810 Lincoln Road #203, Miami Beach

In this installation work, Fazzio explores the traditional role of the female set by societal norms dictated by religious attitudes. She uses icons from the faith she is most familiar with as representative of all religions. Fazzio presents popular religious images of female saints and virgins juxtaposed with images of war as a metaphor for the different behavioral patterns set by cultural mandates unconsciously followed by each gender. During the April Studio Crawl, Fazzio’s performance will incorporate movement inspired by Japanese butoh reflecting this lack of consciousness.
