The biggest lie artists (and women) are often told is that we need to ask permission to expand, that we should be afraid of being too much.</p> <p>We have to expand. We are telling stories, that until recently, have never been told.

I ask myself this every time I begin a new project, and then try to find ways to make the impossible, possible.</p> <p>Here are a few recent impossible feats I&rsquo;ve created with my long time collaborator Director, <a href="https://www.broadwayworld.com/people/Isaac-Byrne/" target="_blank">Isaac Byrne</a>:</p> <p><em><a href="http://jodychristopherson.wixsite.com/jodychristopherson/amp-1" target="_blank">AMP</a></em>, a solo horror play that explodes the Frankenstein creation myth through a feminist lens, exploring the &ldquo;monsters that society creates.&rdquo; It&rsquo;s a theater performance with films we shot guerilla-style at abandoned asylums. <em>AMP</em> was rehearsed over Facetime across two time zones, while Isaac was in his second year of grad school in Texas. It has 500 lighting, sound, projection and haze cues in 60 minutes. Among other things, the props for the production consist of jars of drinkable formaldehyde that contain food-grade sculptures of human organs I created with advice from <a href="http://www.sculpt.com/" target="_blank">The Compleat Sculptor</a>.

The protagonist is a working class woman from Nebraska (like me), who travels to an abandoned island off the coast of Scotland after the death of her grandmother and unearths a powerful family secret. It speaks to the place we are at in history, the need to rise up, because no one else is really going to do it for us.</p> <p>I&rsquo;ve learned to load in, tech solo, as well as perform and live mix foley instruments (thanks to <a href="http://www.andycomusic.com/" target="_blank">Andy Evan Cohen</a>) with an 8-channel board, a looper, distortion pedals as well as operate my own lights onstage. There are times in the show I&rsquo;m performing over seven layers of sound loops I create with either vocalizations or foley instruments.</p> <p>St Kilda will be touring to Minneapolis&rsquo; Southern Theater in <a href="http://www.tchorrorfestival.com/" target="_blank">Horrorfest</a>, Oct 26&ndash;Nov 3.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20181008163002-20180319233552-Necessary_Exposure_photo_by_Jody_Christopherson_Playwirght_Ayesha_Jordan_as_Shasta_Geaux_Pop-4.jpg" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:12px;"><em>Necessary Exposure</em>: Playwright Shasta Geaux Pop, 2017, Photograph</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Who are three artists we should know but probably don&rsquo;t?</strong></p> <p>Here&rsquo;s 46 of them I&rsquo;ve photographed for my portrait and sound installation <em>Necessary Exposure: The Female Playwright Project</em>: <a href="https://thefemaleplaywrightproject.com/" target="_blank">thefemaleplaywrightproject.com</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&mdash;The ArtSlant Team</p> <p><em>ArtSlant is an open Arts community with over 200,000 free, user-generated&nbsp;artist profiles.

This week we seek answers from <a href="https://www.artslant.com/ams/artists/show/187405-danny-augustine?tab=PROFILE" target="_blank">Danny Augustine</a>.</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>What are you trying to communicate with your work?</strong></p> <p>My artwork is a product of a meditative state I slip into while drawing. I never have a set image or idea when I begin a drawing so the end result is a reflection of the world around me.&nbsp;During my process, I filter in 24-hour news streams, personal experiences, and everyday life.&nbsp;</p> <p>Once a drawing is completed, I study and analyze what I was feeling at that time. In some drawings, I could be communicating a political viewpoint, expressing a chapter within my life, or just absorbing the energies of our current times.&nbsp;I tend to tell collectors that I am like a sponge: I just absorb and transcribe visually like a poet or songwriter does with words or music. I&rsquo;ve reached a point in my process nothing is forced&mdash;just a true form of automatic drawing.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20181002174958-Drawing.jpg" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:12px;"><em>2018:16</em>, Pen and ink drawing, 18 x 24 inches</span></p> <p style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>What is an artist&rsquo;s responsibility?</strong></p> <p>Working as an art installer at the MCA Chicago gave me an inside view of how this machine we call the art world works. The artist&rsquo;s true responsibility is to create. This may mean making time or space to create new pieces in a sometimes busy and overwhelming world. Adding to this, the gallerist&rsquo;s job is to promote the unique perspectives that artists have to offer on any given topic or moment in time. Finally, the curator&rsquo;s job is to place the artist within a space and within history. And the collector is the supporter of us all. A place in history can&rsquo;t happen without the initial creation phase, so it is incredibly important that an artist remains inspired to create and comment on the world around them.</p> <p><strong>Show us the greatest thing you ever made (art or not)?&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20181002174906-DannyAugustine.jpg" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:12px;"><em>2018:12</em>, Pen and ink drawing, 18 x 24 inches</span></p> <p style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;</p> <p>I always feel I&rsquo;m constantly creating my greatest work of art, but right now I will feature <em>2018:12</em>. This drawing is being shipped to South Korea this week and will hang within the International Modern Art Exhibition located at KEPCO (Korea Electricity Power Co.) Art Center Gallery located downtown Seoul, represented by Gallery Harang. This is my second exhibition within South Korea this year and I look forward to future projects.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Tell us about a work you want to make but never will:&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>I never think in the negative and feel I can create anything I want and succeed. This could be why I was so successful as an art installer for a major museum. I was able to create, recreate, or piece together the artworks of leading artists of our time, an incredible responsibility.&nbsp;As I say to curators, make sure you are paying attention to the artist working beneath you&mdash;they could be the missed opportunity you never saw coming. So, like I&rsquo;m told, I&rsquo;m just going to keep doing what I&rsquo;m doing and tying to keep challenging and refining my process to grow my work.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20181002175540-Colorful_Drawing.jpg" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:12px;"><em>2018:19</em>, Pen and ink drawing, 18 x 24 inches</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Who are three artists we should know but probably don&rsquo;t?</strong>&nbsp;</p> <p>I know many artists across the board from different parts of my life, but today I&rsquo;m going to honor the professors that inspire my own works of art.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.chicagoreader.com/chicago/karl-wirsum-interview-hairy-who-chicago-imagists-corbett-dempsey/Content?oid=26396169" target="_blank">Karl Wirusm</a> gave me a very positive space to explore my intuitive drawings, while guiding me along the way to shape my process.&nbsp; I highly recommend this documentary: <em><a href="http://chicagoimagists.com/about/" target="_blank">Hairy Who &amp; The Chicago Imagists</a></em>&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="http://www.michikoitatani.com/" target="_blank">Michiko Itatani</a> guided me to find my purpose for creating.</p> <p><a href="http://www.corbettvsdempsey.com/artists/barbara-rossi/" target="_blank">Barbara Rossi</a> gave me the tools to release the imagery that was floating around within my head and soul.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&mdash;The ArtSlant Team</p> <p><em>ArtSlant is an open Arts community with over 200,000 free, user-generated&nbsp;artist profiles.

This week we seek answers from <a href="https://www.artslant.com/ams/artists/show/502322-caroline-dahlberg" target="_blank">Caroline Dahlberg</a>.</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>What are you trying to communicate with your work?</strong></p> <p>Intimacy is the word that comes up a lot. The work I make&nbsp;is tactile, it wants to be touched. I think a lot about social scripts and contracts, like how you know the right moment to kiss someone on a first date. There are a lot of cues and situations and intuitions. Although, in terms of intimacy, I&rsquo;ve always felt that there&rsquo;s a huge lack in daily life. I&rsquo;m looking to make up for that a bit and figure out situations that make people feel very close to&nbsp;or reassured by other people and things. Once you see how close you can get to something, it&rsquo;s hard not to notice the distance that proper social behavior asks for. I saw a photo a while back of a pair of feet intertwining their toes and immediately felt like the skin between my toes wanted to be touched.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20180917175002-20180306225012-Therianthropy.jpg" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:12px;"><em>Therianthropy,&nbsp;</em>2016, Performance, props, sound</span></p> <p style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>What is an artist&rsquo;s responsibility?</strong></p> <p>I&rsquo;m still working on educating myself as an artist and viewer. I do feel that it is important to be responsive and sincere. I feel that it is important to embrace discomfort and be affected by it. I remember a description from Anna Tsing&rsquo;s&nbsp;<em>Mushrooms at the End of the World</em>&nbsp;in which she describes the concept of contamination as being vulnerable and changed by something else. Of course,&nbsp;I don&rsquo;t think this means being without convictions. It&rsquo;s not enough to just feel compassion. In Susan Sontag&rsquo;s&nbsp;<em>On the Pain of Others</em>&nbsp;she calls compassion without action impotent. Responsibility means creative adaptability. Creating new methodologies for action and representation.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Show us the greatest thing you ever made (art or not)?</strong></p> <p>I&rsquo;ve been thinking a lot about this bone I made for a larger installation,&nbsp;<em>The Hypochondriac&rsquo;s Wake</em>. I like that it&rsquo;s illustrating a self-dissection and a whole acknowledging the sum of its parts. I think there will be more work in that vein to come.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20180917174604-hypochondriac_s_bone.jpg" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:12px;"><em>The Hypochondriac&#39;s Bone</em>. Photographed by Caroline Dahlberg</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Tell us about a work you want to make but never will:</strong></p> <p>It&rsquo;s hard to think of a project like that. Maybe because I&rsquo;m early in my career, but the &ldquo;never will&rdquo; seems like a definitive end. Like I&rsquo;m supposed to leave something floating around after I pass away. An &ldquo;afterlife&rdquo; myth of an artwork.</p> <p>With all my projects, I think a lot about what&rsquo;s implied beyond what is there. When I write a line about merging past skin and drop oil into water, I like to imagine the tip of someone&rsquo;s finger passing through someone else&rsquo;s hand. Not in a sort of magic act illusion kind of way, but also with the sensation of feeling muscle, tendons, and bones spreading apart to allow for the finger to pass through. Likewise, feeling the pressure of an appendage invading and how one&rsquo;s hand might adapt to accommodate for it. I like to imagine bodies becoming malleable and adaptive.</p> <p>Perhaps that&rsquo;s the work I want to make, but won&rsquo;t: simulating a way of existing past one&rsquo;s limits, slithering into a zone beyond our bodily lives, perceiving/feeling the next mutation take form. Like thousands of years of bodily adaptations all at once in a matter of minutes, with time drawn out just long enough to savor the intensity.&nbsp;Like a tree that grows through the links in a fence and engulfs it.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20180917175142-20180306225113-To_Pieces.png" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><em style="font-size: 12px;">To Pieces</em><span style="font-size: 12px;">, 2017, Video</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Who are three artists we should know but probably don&rsquo;t? </strong>&nbsp;</p> <p>I&rsquo;m cautious about assuming what people don&rsquo;t know, but here are a few artists who come to mind that I would love to see get more attention:</p> <p>Shaye St. John is an artist that I think about often. Her <a href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOVK8qWkGI7NHsFKkhyv3Bg" target="_blank">videos</a> and the anonymity around them feel like an urban folklore.&nbsp;</p> <p>I also was able to see a performative lecture by <a href="https://www.alokvmenon.com/" target="_blank">Alok Vaid-Menon</a>,&nbsp;which was incredibly powerful.</p> <p>Clarice Lispector also comes to mind.

Whether the migrations are our own, our parents&rsquo; or ancestors&rsquo;, or of others in our societies, these movements shape landscapes and cultures everywhere. Regardless of the boundaries many nations may create through laws regarding incoming and outgoing migration, migration is an intrinsic part of human nature. The contradiction between the necessity of migration and the legislation which governments use to restrict it is something I explore in my art.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20180909124940-20180402173934-9_kitchen_web.jpg" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>What is an artist&rsquo;s responsibility?</strong></p> <p>I think every artist should determine for themselves what they feel is their responsibility.

When opened, they would reveal a 3D diorama of an exhibition I would have in their space. The diorama would include scaled down versions of my installations as well as tongue-in-cheek commentary on why this show would do well in their gallery space.
