Marrow: A Communion in Excavation

June 5, 2019

Ah la moelle! C’est l’or la moelle! Spooned with silver, lodged into fat, cheeks red, rich & sopped, good for the brain, the thick nutty jelly of the veal. A sacred bone is a seed, I say. That which changes the hand, scraped soft and draped in oil, helps us remember.

Devyn Lorelei Mañibo is a Brooklyn-based maker and organizer. Through text, object, and gesture, she thinks intimately about the language and texture of death & desire, fullness & loss. 

Mañibo has had video, performance, installation, and academic work shown, published, and presented internationally in festivals, museums, and conferences including the MIX NYC Queer Experimental Film Festival, the National Queer Arts Festival, the Berlin Porn Film Festival, the Queens Museum, and the Allied Media Conference. Mañibo is a 2013 Princess Grace Foundation Undergraduate Film Award Recipient, and an alum of Cycle III of the Innovative Cultural Advocacy Fellowship with the Caribbean Cultural Center in Harlem. She was 2018 [Multitude] Artist in Residence at The Overlook Place, where she co-produced an edition of 50 handmade artist books wading through memory, trauma, and preservation. She received her BA in New Media, Devised Theatre, and a certificate in Queer Studies from Hampshire College, and an MFA in performance & performance studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Her first full-length collection of poetry, F(E)AST is due in 2020.

Marie Ségolène Brault (b. 1988 Montreal, Qc) holds a BA in Creative Writing and a BFA in Intermedia Cyberarts from Concordia University (Canada). She completed her MFA in Performance from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2019.

Marie has exhibited work in the US, Canada and Europe. In 2018 she took part in Conversations in Contemporary Poetics curated by Jeffrey Grunthaner, at Hauser & Wirth in New York City, and performed as part of the Performance and Noise Biennial: Tempting Failure in London. Her fifth artist publication entitled Dehiscence (2018) has recently been published with the support of Anteism.

In partnership with Chicago-based publication Glamour Girl, Marie curated and co-produced a performance and poetry tour entitled Fleur de Sel, which took place in Montreal, Chicago, Pittsburg, Philadelphia, and New York, in the fall of 2018.

Relocated to the Hudson Valley, Marie is currently developing a new body of work focused on radical hospitality: cooking, wine, and creative dining experiences. This is Marie's second show with Extase.
