Artist Ann Hirsch on Sexuality, Cooptation and the Internet

12/4/2022
Oriana Fox interviews the artist Ann Hirsch whose video and performance art practice entails participant observation within myriad mediated contexts. For her project entitled Scandalishious, Hirsch became a YouTube camwhore with over two million video views and then made an appearance as a contestant on Frank the Entertainer…In a Basement Affair on Vh1. Much has changed since that pioneering YouTube work, which was made back in 2008 when the platform had only just begun. While it’s much more commonplace now for a woman to explore her sexuality online and be taken seriously as a complex human being, the power dynamics at play are still locked and in need of dismantling. The pace of change is both intensely fast and heartbreakingly slow within digital capitalism. Also discussed in this candid interview is Hirsch's recent work as a male alter ego; her musical about academia; and her prophecy that every woman will show her vagina on the internet This interview was recorded live on Instagram in May 2021 as part of Oriana's digital residency at Mimosa House Gallery. You can watch the original video here. Oriana Fox is a London-based, New York-born artist with a PhD in self-disclosure.

Ann Hirsch is a video and performance artist whose work has been shown to acclaim at MOCA Los Angeles; Performa, New York; South London Gallery, London; and the New Museum, New York.

Selfies, still lives, self-discipline and subversion with artist/author Dawn Woolley

10/11/2022
In this brand new interview with the artist and author Dawn Woolley, we discuss her brand new book Consuming the body: Capitalism, Social Media and Commodification published by Bloomsbury on 6 Oct 2022. The book is a sociological study of contemporary consumerism and the commodified construction of ideal gendered bodies, paying particular attention to the new forms of interaction produced by social networking sites. In short, there’s a lot of analysis of the phenomenon of the selfie. The book describes the behaviours of an ideal neoliberal subject, that is, the type of person produced by the current form of capitalism – the kind of capitalism that promotes competitive individualism and defines human worth in solely economic terms. In this context, Woolley identifies the sadistic demands the market makes of us, which is how we are transformed into self-disciplining subjects, but importantly, she also highlights forms of pleasure and opportunities for subversion. Oriana Fox is a London-based, New York-born artist with a PhD in self-disclosure. She puts her expertise to work as the host of the talk show performance piece The O Show. Dawn Woolley is an artist and academic whose work examines representations of gender in adverts, magazines, on TV and online in order to appropriate their visual language and expose the stereotypes they reproduce. In 2017 Woolley's photograph The Substitute (holiday) was designated the world's best selfie by GQ magazine, after winning Saatchi gallery's from selfie to self-expression competition. Woolley is also a research fellow at Leeds Art University. The book launch event is Friday, 21 Oct, 5.30 - 7 pm at Leeds Art University or online, book here.

Whip-smart, hard-working Polish Artist-turned-Author Ania Bas

9/14/2022
This episode contains a freshly recorded conversation with Ania Bas, a hard-working Polish Artist-turned-Author (based in the UK). Her debut novel Odd Hours revolves around a prickly female protagonist who works in a well-lit, unethical supermarket and lives in a badly-lit zone 3 flatshare. The book contains unidealised migrants, a self-help book-within-a-book, short and sharp poetry and some saucy scenes. The elevator pitch reads: "Odd Hours is a whip-smart social comedy for those of us who feel that life is a game where someone else has stolen the rules." Ania Bas is certainly someone who is living life by her own rules, transitioning mid-career from a socially engaged artist to a novelist. Oriana asks about that transition, the book itself and the important links between Bas's visual arts practice and her writing. Oriana Fox is a London-based, New York-born artist with a PhD in self-disclosure. She puts her expertise to work as the host of the talk show performance piece The O Show. Ania Bas is an artist and writer whose work explores how narratives shape understanding, mythology and knowledge of places and people. Her work takes diverse forms to create situations that support dialogue and question existing frameworks of participation. Bas has been commissioned by the Tate, Whitechapel Gallery and Yorkshire Artspace, and her debut novel Odd Hours was published by Wellbeck in June 2022. It is available to purchase in all good bookshops or from bookshop.org Other works mentioned in the podcast: Susie Orbach Fat is a Feminist Issue (1978) The office-sabotaging works of artist Pilvi Takala Marie Kondo The Life-changing Magic of Tidying (2014) Credits: Produced, edited and hosted by Oriana Fox Introductory Voiceover by John Kilduff, aka Mr. Let's Paint Original theme song written and performed by Paulette Humanbeing Special Thanks to Tom Estes, Sven Van Damme, Katie Beeson, Janak Patel and Mimosa House Gallery, London www.theoshow.live Please rate and review this podcast to help others to find it!

They discuss McLean's unique approach to materials as metaphors for the topics she addresses including displacement, migration, resistance and resilience.

Wade. Oriana Fox is a London-based, New York-born artist with a PhD in self-disclosure. She puts her expertise to work as the host of the talk show performance piece The O Show.

Drag King Sigi Moonlight: Personas, pleasure and femininity

6/30/2022
🏳️‍🌈 In honour of pride month, I'm sharing the interview I did with Jacqui Bardelang, the performer behind drag king Sigi Moonlight. Bardelang speaks about the various personas Moonlight encompasses and the way they subvert binary gender norms and racial stereotypes through seduction. Counterintuitively, Bardelang has gotten more in touch with her feminine side through drag kinging. We also discuss pronouns and the ups and downs of female masculinity on stage and off, from being the object of pansexual desire to being misgendered. This interview was recorded live on Instagram in May 2021 as part of Oriana's digital residency at Mimosa House Gallery. You can watch the original video here. Oriana Fox is a London-based, New York-born artist with a PhD in self-disclosure. She puts her expertise to work as the host of the talk show performance piece The O Show. Jacqui Bardelang is an actor who performs regularly as drag king Sigi Moonlight, taking on multiple, eclectic characters parodying masculinity, from British icons such as Captain Birdseye who wants to show you his fish finger to the generic wise old Asian man of Kung Fu fame whose quest, in Moonlight's rendition, is to be sexy. Bardelang is a member of two collectives Pecs Drag Kings and The Bitten Peach. Moonlight was also featured in Them magazine's article "8 Drag Kings you need to know". FYI: You can watch the related episode of 'The O Show' on Female Masculinity featuring guest artists Del LaGrace Volcano, Lucy Hutson and Temi Wilkey with performances by Pecs Drag Kings on the O Show's new website: www.theoshow.live/female-masculinity or on TheOrianaFox's youtube channel here.

Oriana Fox meets The Golden Brown Girls, Indrani Ashe and Shannon Tamara Lewis to discuss the imagined futures that their eponymously titled web series presents. Grey-haired, witty and optimistic, their older selves live out a fantasy that is in distinct contrast to their lived reality in an age of austerity.

Soon after they invited another artist, Sara Umar to write herself into the script. It's now a growing network of women and creative professionals from across the globe with individual and collaborative practices. Their web series was envisioned as a method of imagining the artists' futures, a stage for their political concerns and a way to create new social structures with like-minded individuals. Indrani Ashe is a US-born, Goldsmiths-educated, Berlin-based interdisciplinary artist of Bengali and white American descent whose practice speaks to the experience of the body as a political vessel, wresting the narrative from hegemonical structures.

Follow her on Instagram @theshadowarchivist Shannon Tamara Lewis is a Canadian artist of Caribbean descent, who also studied at Goldsmiths, University of London, and is based in Berlin.

Awkward conversations with Daniel Oliver

4/29/2022
Oriana Fox speaks with live artist Daniel Oliver about the daring mix of pre-planning, chance, nakedness and collaboration in his work. Oliver wants audiences to be euphoric about or made uncomfortable by his participatory work, anything but indifferent. In embracing the label dyspraxic along with punk aesthetics, he welcomes the potential for getting things wrong. In fact, he believes that's what makes live art the ideal medium for his work. Taking agency as a neurodiverse artist for Oliver means that if you don't like what he does, you're just ableist. The first half of this interview was recorded live on Instagram in May 2021 as part of Oriana's digital residency at Mimosa House Gallery. You can watch the original video here.

Transparency is my only weapon with Eirini Kartsaki

2/23/2022
Oriana Fox interviews the insatiable, sexy and weird performance artist Eirini Kartsaki who expounds her Manifesto and entices Oriana to show more cleavage. More accurately, Oriana listens to her guest and sometimes interjects with a question or two as Kartsaki fleshes out what it means to live a life free from norms and expectations, a life that is weird, inconsistent, too much and without children. In doing so she calls for a revaluation of inconsistency, uncertainty and instability. Kartsaki's top tip for self care (spoiler alert), is to scream 'lawlessness' ten times in a row. Lawlessness! Lawlessness! Lawlessness! Lawlessness! Lawlessness! Lawlessness! Lawlessness! Lawlessness! Lawlessness! Lawlessness! The interview was recorded live on Instagram in May 2021 as part of Oriana's digital residency at Mimosa House Gallery. You'll want to watch the episode here to witness all the cleavage that's mentioned herein. Oriana Fox is a London-based, New York-born artist with a PhD in self-disclosure.

Before and After with Hannah Ballou

2/4/2022
This episode is a double feature as it includes not one but two interviews Oriana carried out with the performance artist Hannah Ballou. Last year, Oriana spoke with Ballou after she had just completed filming Goo:Ga II, itself a sequel to her 2015 feminist live art comedy show Goo: Ga I, which playfully subverted the gender reveal party and announced the sex of her first child, a much-desired daughter. As Ballou explains, she always wanted to do a follow-up show. But due to Covid, Goo:Ga II had to be staged in an empty theatre for the camera. The hilarity of the first performance continues in the film sequel as a heavily pregnant Ballou, accompanied by her now 5-year old daughter in matching leopard-print bikinis, takes us through a vibrant dance routine, replete with a giant yoga ball that Ballou vogues with, making a spectacle of her bump, Meghan Markle-style. The mood swiftly changes though, as we learn that the gender binary paradigm is the least of this fetus' problems since being diagnosed with a very rare heart anomaly. The mood of Goo ga II darkens as Ballou grapples to keep hope at bay, not knowing if the pregnancy will come to term. It's a film that will literally make you laugh and cry. Oriana's follow-up interview with Ballou, which took place recently, i.e. 7 months after the first, finds Ballou with the relief of her baby boy alive and thriving, and with a string of upcoming film screenings to plug. The first interview was recorded live on Instagram in May 2021 as part of Oriana's digital residency at Mimosa House Gallery. You can watch the episode here. ***Tickets to the next screening of Goo:Ga II at Colchester Arts Centre on 4 May 2022 can be booked here.*** Oriana Fox is a London-based, New York-born artist with a PhD in self-disclosure.
