Nancy Popp's Untitled (Street Performances) evolved as an action to mark the landscape, a recognizable urban landscape, as a means of emphasizing the rupture of the surface and the horizon, the displacement of a body in relation to signage and architecture, and the boundaries between public and private space. The climbs will take place in various cities around the world, each performance shaped by the city's unique geography, topography and population.
Nancy Popp works with performance, video and photography. Her projects investigate the body as subject and sculptural object and the risk and vulnerability of serious play. She has shown with the Art Institute of Chicago, the Armory Center for the Arts, the University of Redlands, the Getty Center and in a variety public sites throughout the United States. She also performs with Corpus Delecti's Butoh Performance Lab and the LA Art Girls. A native of Los Angeles, she received her BFA at Art Center College of Design and her MFA at the San Francisco Art Institute. She lives and works in Los Angeles.
