Thin(k) Blank Human: Metamorphosis is a performance piece by artist Lisa Anita Wegner (haus of dada) and musician Ray Cammaert (Pink Moth). It began as an extension of Wegner's Trauma Therapy and represents a safe place in the search for one's self after complete annihilation. It is both a confirmation of vitality and a call to action. The piece explores male and female layers of the neutral self and uses vibration of sound to assist in the expression of terror, hysteria, madness, resilience and joy on the journey to re-birth.
LISA ANITA WEGNER is the creative producer of Mighty Brave Productions, a small award-winning multi-media production company. In 2008 Lisa began exploring art video, post-production photography and most recently, performance art as therapy. Her art work was first shown at the Phoenix Art Museum, and since then, has appeared at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Gallery 1313, Moniker Gallery, Toronto Art Fair, Buddies in Bad Times, Annex Patio Art Show, The Black Cat Artspace and NXNE Festival. Her ventures into large-scale performance installations include the 26-foot "Queen Of The Parade," which was a highlight of Patrick Macauley's “Parade” for Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2013; a 10-foot version of The Queen was commissioned by Partners in Art, for their annual Fundraiser ARTrageous In Motion in 2014. Recently, she has been pushing further with live performance by working with choreographer Brandy Leary and exploring the personae of Thin(k) Blank Human with her live performance Metamorphosis having been a highlight of Anandam’s Body Break at Theatre Passe Murielle, PROCESS at Artscape Youngplace, a Hercinia Art Party, the FOMO Feminist Art Conference at OCADU and as a special performance at the Gallery 1313 20th Anniversary Party.
