Have you been wondering who the artist is on the cover of SAiA's April Issue? This performance is a collaboration between Magnhild Fossum and Zoe McCloskey in “Interrrational” Cabaret Voltaire, performed in Zurich in 2013. Costumes are by Eloisa Avila and Hans Leidescher.
Read an exclusive interview with Zoe McCloskey in SAiA's April Issue. McCloskey is a multimedia performance artist. Her most recent works engage genetics, neurosci- ence, and the limits of perception. Her pieces also combine video and audio recordings, performance, and philosophical texts from other artists. Through combining neuroscience, various media, and writ- ings about art, McCloskey sheds light on the com- plicated role of the artist as an authoritative and honest figure. Her works have been installed as street art in various places, including New Orleans, Washington D.C., Oakland, and Oaxaca, Mexico. She has also performed at the Cyberpunk Apocalyp- tic Writers Collective in Pittsburgh and the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich.
