Fishing with Angela, 2015-2016, single channel video and performance
Total run time: 11:09

In spring 2015, artist, painter, and mentor Angela Dufresne took Kerry Downey on a fishing trip upstate. Downey's subsequent project, both video and performance, uses an overhead projector to copy Dufresne’s gestures.  This work explores the relationship between fishing and painting, mentor and mentee. As Dufresne ties flies to mimic nature to catch a fish, Downey imitates Dufresne, taking on gestures that speak to feminist and queer haptics. This work also explores wetness and flow, drawing connections between the bodies of water, both figurative and environmental.   

Clocktower Radio, in conjuction with 2MF, hosts a conversation between Kerry Downey Maria Stabio.
