CHAMECKILERNER

chameckilerner is Rosane Chamecki and Andrea Lerner, with a body of work that includes dance performances, video and installation pieces.What has been at the core of our work, are questions involving the body and its presence. We are in search of a way of moving that is real in its obsessions and in relationship with the other. From the struggling bodies of our initial works, obsessed with its intensions and busy resolving its tasks, to our deranged bodies on the late 90’s, full of internal mechanisms of desire, to the social bodies of our latest works— feminine, aging and conflicted between the intimate and the public—the work has always been a magnifying glass into the unspoken humanity enclosed in these bodies. chameckilerner is the recipient of Guggenheim Fellowship, The Foundation for Contemporary Arts, NYFA, NYSCA, NEFA, Jerome Foundation, Rockefeller MAP Fund, among others. Their work was presented by The Kitchen, DTW, The Joyce Theater, Performance Space 122, Central Park SummerStage, Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, Mass MoCA, Diverseworks, Jacob’s Pillow, American Dance Festival, and toured Brazil, as well as Central and North America, and Europe. Residencies include YADDO, Watermill Center and EMPAC.
