Charlotte Street Foundation identifies the needs and fuels the evolution of an ever-changing multidisciplinary arts ecosystem, acting as its primary provocateur. We cultivate the contemporary, the exceptional, and the unexpected in the practice of artists working in and engaging with the Kansas City Art Community
Jessica Borusky is a visual artist, writer, and performance artist. Her artistic practice is informed through academic feminist methodologies that materialize a visual product dealing with historical/personal narrative through an embodied performance of common western linguistic tropes. Her performance video work seeks to unpack greater oppressive social/cultural norms and practices through satirical performances that also locate her own experience and assumed capacities within and outside of those oppressive structures and norms.
Borusky writes: “Often, I begin my process with a question that seeks to combine feminist theory, lived experience, and historical context/language through performative outcomes, resulting in a space for multi-layered viewer discovery…. my theoretical delivery lies in creating performances for video, curating sites for critical conversation, and developing projects that carry on ideas and concepts surrounding safe, curious spaces for contemporary feminist lived/practice/experience.”
