MartineViale

Free Air, is a collaboration between Regin Igloria and Amy Sinclair who first performed for Out of Site in 2014. In this performance entitled Every Something Becoming Nothing we will exhale our breaths consistently into plastic tubing that feeds into a glass jar of ink and soap, creating a fountain of bubbles growing, escalating, and dissipating in an ongoing cycle of reflective, random forms. This breathing regimen will be performed for the duration of three hours before and after the 30minute performance.
 
Regin Igloria was born in 1974 Manila, Philippines. Lives and works in Chicago, IL.
Regin is a multidisciplinary artist and educator based in Chicago. His drawings, artists’ books, sculptures, and performances portray the human condition as it relates to the natural environment and inhabited spaces. With several years of arts administration and teaching experience, he founded North Branch Projects, an organization that builds connections through the book arts. He works with various communities to create crossover between disparate populations and cultures, aiming to broaden the roles of both artists and non-artists. Igloria has taught at places such as Marwen, RISD, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Snow City Arts, and Carthage College. He received a 3Arts Individual Artist Award as well as local, national, and international grants, support through artist residencies, and has exhibited internationally. He received his MFA from Rhode Island School of Design.
