On Sunday, the photographer and performance artist Ventiko attempted to bring her peacock on a flight to Los Angeles. The airline said no.
The Performance Anxiety series, curated by Ventiko, stages a monthly performance buffet on the Lower East Side.
Ventiko just had her first Chelsea solo show at the Coohaus gallery, VENTIKO: The Other World, which ran until May 21st and exhibited eight of the young photographer’s works. Beginning last Saturday, she is being featured in a group show called Toxicity, curated by Aimee Hertog at the Williamsburg Art & Historical Center. Inspired by Renaissance scenes and motifs, in her work we see an emerging and talented photographer who has a clear vision but is still finding her way towards the means for clearly expressing it.
