Bio: Run Shayo
Is a performance based artist, creating interdisciplinary work that explores the struggle of an artist in post modern contexts, and the processes encountered. “I find my characters and their stories during researching archived TV melodramas, classic history films, and documentation of conceptualized Asian post modern performance art. The basic form of storytelling is what I strive to follow, yet, in the center of my exploration is the meaninglessness of structure in the face of a true improvised moment.”
