Jen DeNike

Michael Rush hosts video and performance artist Jen DeNike whose work is generally minimal and hyper-focused often using choreography to create looped or sustained hypnotic moments. DeNike describes her recent projects, how to divine spirits in a mirror, her past as a competitive diver, and her quest to free a man on death row (31 minutes).

For PERFORMA 2009. Her piece at the Brooklyn Museum involves a baton twirler from Long Island, an entire marching band, and a secret surprise!
