Wanbli Gamache Performance
CW: Explicit Sexual Content
First section of video filmed by Dabin Ahn
Gamache examines intimacy and voyeurism through her performances which engage digital mediums and physical props. By fabricating erotic fantasies, she mirrors her personal experiences with pornography and online sex work as a transwoman. On Friday Gamache will present a prerecorded and live streamed performance for Hot Wheelz, using 3D printed prosthetics and carefully choreographed audience participation. Video documentation will be archived through the Hot Wheelz archive so the performance lives on past its initial activation.

She is an alumni of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Film, Video, New Media, and Animation Department and currently lives and works in Chicago. Gamache has exhibited work at Links Hall (Chicago, IL), Sullivan Galleries, Zhou B Art Center, and ACRE Gallery (Chicago, IL); the Supernova Digital Animation Festival in Denver, Colorado, and recently a MANA Contemporary New Media Artist-in-residence.
