On December 30th, 2014, an entry on Object of Her Affection was published in Big Art Group’s 2015 Contemporary Performance Almanac, edited by Caden Manson and Jemma Nelson. Object of Her Affection is a solo puppetry and object performance art piece centered on a woman, who in her search for true love develops intimate relationships with inanimate objects.
Contemporary Performance Almanac 2015 is an overview of contemporary performance presented during the 2013/2014 season available for touring now. So often presenters, artists and audiences do not have access to the work of artists that are outside the touring circuit. Contemporary Performance sees a need to give access to members of the field to find each other and start new working relationships. Inside the pages of the Almanac are the artworks accompanied by full page black and white images and described by the artists in their own words: eloquent, challenging, provocative and urgent. The Contemporary Performance Network is a social network and community organizing platform providing artists, presenters, scholars and festivals a place to meet, share work, and collaborate. The term contemporary performance is used to describe hybrid performance works and artists that travel between the fields of experimental theatre & dance, video art, visual art, music composition and performance art without adhering to one specific field’s practice. The Network was founded in 2010 and has grown to 6500 artists, presenters, curators, foundations, scholars and publishers from 85 countries worldwide.
