Coco Fusco, born and based in New York is a interdisciplinary
artist and writer and is one of the most significant and influential
performance and video-artists (also an articulate and outspoken
theoretician, as well as an active curator).  She deals with issues
such as globalisation, gender-specific conflicts, cultural colonisation
and intercultural theory and practice. Her work is an ongoing
reflection on the conditions of (women's) bodies in globalising and
technologically imbued environments.

She has performed, lectured, exhibited and curated around the world
since 1988. She is the author of English is Broken Here (The New
Press,1995), The Bodies That Were Not Ours and Other Writings
(Routledge/inIVA, 2001) and the editor of Corpus Delecti: Performance
Art of the Americas (Routledge, 1999) and Only Skin Deep: Changing
Visions of the American Self (Abrams, 2003).

Fusco?s recent art projects combine electronic media and performance in
a variety of formats, from staged multi-media performances
incorporating large scale projections and closed circuit television to
live performances streamed to the internet that invite audiences to
chart the course of action through chat interaction.  Her works have
been included in such events as The Whitney Biennial, Sydney Biennale,
The Johannesburg Biennial, The Kwangju Biennale, The Shanghai Biennale
and VideoBrasil.

ELASTIC RESIDENCE is a non-profit gallery space for projects and
durational performance.  It is an artist-run space established in 2004,
aimed at giving artists dealing with challenging contemporary material,
direct access to exhibiting opportunities. <>
