The New Dreamz

Andrew Jeffrey Wright and Rose Luardo work together as the duo The New Dreamz. In their work, which is primarily expressed through the mediums of video and performance, they explore identity, class, pop culture, beauty, sexuality, and even the process of art making itself. Blending a myriad of eclectic influences they re-contextualize their source material and create a dense and vibrant landscape that takes the audience into a total mind and body experience. They bend reality with an eye towards illumination. What they yield is a mix of visual poetry, identity art, and the trying on of body comportment. Wright and Luardo find creative fodder in the materials they have amassed over years of friendship. They use a stockpile of wigs, costumes, curiosities, lot store items and the like--to transform themselves.
