Performance Discipline
Artist and Writer
Cristiane Bouger is a Brooklyn-based artist who works in the fields of performance, video, installation, contemporary dance, experimental theater, text, poetry and critical writing. She is a 2012 Movement Research Artist-in-Residence and a Performa Magazine Writer-in-Residence (Performa Writing Live Residency).
Through her interdisciplinary work she aims to provoke dissonances and the displacement of meaning and context to ignite an unexpected perceptual apprehension on the viewers. The imagery of her works reveals existential examinations or responses that reflects upon the female body, desire, cultural conducts, behavior and symbols, political mechanisms, biography and fiction.
Her performances have been presented in Brazil, the United States and Romania. Her video works have been featured in collective exhibitions and screenings at Museu Oscar Niemeyer (Curitiba, 2014); Rapid Pulse International Performance Art Festival (Chicago, 2013); 461 Gallery (New York, 2012–2013); National Center of Dance–Bucharest/Atelierul de Productie (Bucharest, 2011); Centro Cultural São Paulo–CCSP (São Paulo, 2011); Anthology Film Archives–NewFilmmakers Series (New York, 2010); Modern Art Museum of Rio de Janeiro–MAM-RJ (Rio de Janeiro, 2010); Centro Cultural Solar do Barão (Curitiba, 2009-2010); Cine Humberto Mauro/Palácio das Artes (Belo Horizonte, 2009); ACE Film Festival (New York, 2008); In-Presentable 08 (Madrid, 2008); Montage Video Dance Festival (Johannesburg, 2008); Mostra Latino Americana Vento Sur (Curitiba, 2008); Museu de Arte Moderna da Bahia (Salvador, 2008); Videobrasil/SESC–Avenida Paulista (São Paulo, 2008); 9ème Festival des Cinémas Différents (Paris, 2007), and at the 1st Live Art Meeting of Rio de Janeiro (Rio de Janeiro, 2005), among others.

Cristiane Bouger was a contributing writer for the Movement Research’s Moving Dialogue: A Bucharest/New York Dance Exchange (2010-2011) and a collaborating writer for PERFORMA 09 – The Third New Visual Art Performance Biennial. She has been a contributing editor for the MR Performance Journal since 2007 and a collaborating writer for the Critical Correspondence since 2008. Her articles, interviews and essays have been published in books, magazines, newspapers and journals in the USA, England, Brazil and Portugal. In 2012 she was a nominee for the Alice Award – Artistic Landmarks in Contemporary Experience (Belgium), in the category Emerging Critic Award.
