CoWorker Projects is pleased to present video works by Christina Sukhgian Houle on May 19th starting at 7PM at Entwine.

Using photography, multimedia and site specific installations, videos and social experimentation, Ms. Houle examines both how identity is constructed, defined and modified, as well as the space where fiction and truth might intersect. By introducing highly orchestrated elements into everyday life and documenting the outcomes, she aims to capture and present not only the theatricality of these scenarios but also the confusion that they create and the insights they provoke.

Christina Sukhgian Houle has studied and worked at The Second City in Chicago, Illinois as well as performed at Second City's Donny's Skybox. Her performances and videos have received multiple awards and honors including most recently the Andy Warhol Foundation's Idea Fund Grant. Her choreography has been featured at festivals throughout the country and variations on her series Migration Patterns During Wartime have been performed and screened in Alabama, California, New York, Texas, Mexico and the Netherlands. Ms. Houle has served as a visiting artist to Spelman College (GA) and KIPP high school, completed the SOMA program in Mexico City and worked as an assistant to Deborah Hay. She is currently studying for her MFA in Visual Art at Columbia University and this summer will attend the Mildred's Lane residency program.
