IRA FERRIS, Australia
media artist I dancer I writer I curator
is a Sydney-based, Zagreb-born curator, writer, podcaster, and interdisciplinary artist working across dance, poetry, video art, sound collages, and collaborations. With artist Elia Bosshard she is a co-author of SPACE BODY HABIT, a book that comprises a series of spatio-somatic and phenomenologically-driven exercises, followed by in-depth discussions on the many ways we perceive, or fail to perceive spaces and their impact on our day-to-day lives.
Her curatorial interests are broad but tend to gravitate towards conceptual art practices. As a dancer she is interested in and inspired by somaesthetics; the way our bodies navigate and experience exhibition spaces.
