Bunnell artist-in-residence holds show

Bunnell Street Art Center’s artist in residence Jaimie Warren holds a community share to culminate her month-long residency at Bunnell Street Arts Center at 6 p.m. today, March 22, at the gallery.

Warren has been working with Homer teens to create a music video on Bishop’s Beach. During her residency she helped students develop a variety of skills, including prop design, film direction, acting and costume creation.

Props and costumes will be on display and the Homer-made music video will debut during the event.

Warren developed the project in collaboration with student artists. Through her residency she met several times weekly to brainstorm ideas, teach them techniques, scout filming locations, create art objects and experiment with new materials such as latex, wigs, slime and makeup.

In her work, Jaimie Warren assembles sets and costumes to create enactments of characters culled from Internet memes, pop culture, and art history.

Her productions expand on traditions of staged self-portraiture, B-horror movies, high school plays and silent films, and focus on how identity is performed in contemporary and historical artistic contexts.
