For the first of six live performance events at the CAG in January 2016 we present a new work by Tiziana La Melia.

Developed from the artist’s own writing, Tiziana La Melia’s performances investigate the slippages between language and form, evoking a tension between the written and the aesthetic visual experience of performance. Creating intricate installations and objects that also operate as props, sets and costumes, La Melia develops compellingly simple vignettes that allude to a range of references from the art historical and literary to the personal and incidental, leaving the viewer to contemplate a layered and malleable composition.

For CAG, La Melia has produced a new performance Staring at the Ceiling which enacts a professional photo shoot for a set of earrings designed by the artist. Her audience become witnesses and participants in a photograph that aims to capture the glint and flash of an object captured in motion. The piece is performed in two parts, splitting physical action and spoken word.

Tiziana La Melia lives and works in Vancouver, BC and works in painting, installation, film and writing. Recent exhibitions include Francois Ghebaly, Los Angeles; Mint, Columbus;  Mercer Union, Toronto; Macaulay & Co. Fine Art, Vancouver; The Apartment, Vancouver; Xspace, Toronto; Western Front, Vancouver, and SBC Galerie, Montreal. La Melia’s writing has appeared in Night Papers V, Bartleby Review, Setup Magazine, Millions Magazine, Pelt and West Coast Line among others. Selected readings and screenings of her work include Wendy’s Subway, New York; Model, Vancouver and Trieze, Paris. In 2014, she was the Writer in Residence at TPW R&D, Toronto and the winner of the RBC Canadian Painting Competition.
