Title: Kitsch N' Shit
BIO: AABier is an ongoing collaboration between the sisters, Adina Bier and Arielle Bier. They have been living and working together in Brooklyn since 2008. Their work includes performance/installation, incorporating hand-made costuming and sculptural objects. Thematically, their work focuses on relationships and environments. Within the situations and atmospheres that AABier create, they explore the notions of creature comforts, pop-culture influences, territories and violence, and flight of the imagination. Their work challenges the effects of limitations defined by social norms, misconceptions and ideals. Metaphors of fantasy are manifested through studying their own boundaries and weights of connection.
Arielle Bier is a 2011 MFA candidate at ICP-Bard and received her BA from New York University in 2005. Adina Bier received her BFA from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University in 2007.
In 2010 and 2011, AABier performed in various venues and galleries including, Fountain Art Fair, NY, NY, Into the Neon performART, Chashama Gallery, NY, NY, Maximum Perception Performance Art Festival, English Kills Gallery, Brooklyn, NY, Fountain Art Fair, Miami, FL, LUMEN Art Festival, Staten Island, NY, Grace Exhibition Space, Brooklyn, NY, and ACG Gallery, Brooklyn, NY.
