Virtual Encounters: Performance by Jacob Wren followed by Anyse Ducharme and Jacob Wren in Conversation
Please join artist Jacob Wren for the premiere of his performance My apartment is just piles of books. To follow, artists Anyse Ducharme and Jacob Wren will be in conversation, as part of their online presentation for LOMAA’s series Virtual Encounters: New Entanglements in Performance and Media, which investigates performance art’s newly defined relationship with media.

Accessibility: Live ASL and Zoom captioning available.

Anyse Ducharme (elle | she | her) is a franco-ontarian (fr | en) media artist, curator + teacher from northeastern Ontario, Robinson-Huron Treaty Territory. Her artistic production locates itself in an opposition (from within) to digital colonialism through small, sometimes subversive acts: glitching images with internet comments; dismantling assumptions of transparency that are both promoted and compromised by the ways in which knowledge is increasingly organized in the era of the computer; and by exploring the malleability of data through the transformation of information into various representational states.

Jacob Wren makes literature, collaborative performances and exhibitions. His books include Polyamorous Love Song, Rich and Poor and Authenticity is a Feeling. As artistic codirector of the interdisciplinary group PME-ART he has co-created performances such as: En français comme en anglais, it's easy to criticize, Individualism Was A Mistake, The DJ Who Gave Too Much Information, Every Song I’ve Ever Written and Adventures can be found anywhere, même dans la répétition. PME-ART has also presented the online conference Vulnerable Paradoxes and the related free PDF publication In response to Vulnerable Paradoxes.

Please visit to learn more about the artists’ projects and how to access them, as well as the Virtual Encounters series.
