CONTEXT Art Miami will also feature two special performances to complement the international exhibitions. San Francisco’s Heron Arts will present Donald Ian McCaw, a Canadian performance artist who situates his very personal autobiographical paintings in the context of a very impersonal story about a businessman seeking to reinvent the way fine art is made. He plays out the story of Mba Fabrications Inc. presenting business initiatives with convincing earnestness. 532 Thomas Jaeckel Gallery based in New York will present a performance by German-born artist Nadja Marcin. “OPHELIA” will be an architectural, interdisciplinary performance, presented live at the fair and as a video sculpture evoking questions of anthropocentric attitudes and actions, which are resulting in human destruction of the biosphere. The performance piece is inspired by “Ophelia” (John Everett Millais, 1852), “Three Ball Total Equilibrium Tank” (Jeff Koons, 1985), and the text from “The Werld”
(Daniil Kharms, 1939).
