CHARLIE TUESDAY GATES
is
an  
ARTIST
with a reputation for unique and challenging SCULPTURE, VIDEO & PERFORMANCE ART that confronts, questions and challenges issues of morality, ethics and the very nature of CONTROVERSY itself. 
 
Although she doesn’t classify HERSELF as such, she has been listed as one of the 
U.K’s TOP TAXIDERMISTS, instrumental in bringing the new wave of TAXIDERMY into the mainstream. 
Her pioneering series ‘D.I.Y Taxidermy LIVE!’ series embraced an entirely new medium of WORKSHOPS and live demonstrations that simply didn’t EXIST before. Evolving from a tongue-in-cheek demonstration in 2009, this BIZARRE mix of performance, improvisation, STORYTELLING, VIDEO, PUPPETRY became a hugely popular and sell out show. 
Her video work uses the  medium of ‘ANIMALATION’, where Gates animates and DISTORTS  dead characters, REAL animals are MANIPULATED by hand to perform, sing and dance. 
 
Gates went on to create ‘SING FOR YOUR LIFE’ a multi AWARD WINNING musical staring DEAD animal puppets. A REVOLUTION in musical theatre confronting the audience with the UNCOMFORTABLE truth of how we purport to CARE about our fellow species, yet are BLINDED and driven to cruelty by NARCISSM and COMMODITY.  Sing For Your Life is littered with BLUNT & CRASS puns along with SARDONIC nods to the canon, processes and practices that mock popular culture, tradition and the CULT OF CELEBRITY…

Gates FASHION brand MIND LIKE MAGPIE has had pieces commissioned for BEYONCE and ELTON JOHN and seen on the holy head of CARA DELEVIGNE.

Her artwork has been exhibited in MUSEUM ARNHEM, the cover of DESIGN WEEK, inside THE HUFFINGTON POST,  TIME OUT, THE INDEPENDENT, NOTION, CLASH, MIX MAG, BIZARRE MAGAZINE, DAZED AND CONFUSED & VICE. She has worked with DIESEL, BBC FILM, FILM LONDON, FUTURE CINEMA, LOST LECTURES and many more.
 
Born in DORSET, Gates studied sculpture at CAMBERWELL COLLEGE OF ART. She now lives and works in LONDON.

OneOfUs.Chapel.Poster no blONE OF US are excited to announce we’re organizing another immersive performance this time in Williamsburg New York.

After a sold out performance in London (listed in Time Out, Le Cool London and Who’s Jack among others) we are uniting artists and performers in St Paul’s Lutheran Church.

The Village of Williamsburgh within the Town of Bushwick has seen a lot of changes since 1827. Industrialists (see the remaining relic ‘Domino Sugar Factory’); shore-side mansions; it became a cauldron of pent up energies when Tony Serpico was shot and most recently it has been a haven for creatives. St Paul’s is an emblem of history having witnessed most of these changes since it was born in 1853.

Be transported through a postmodern mish mash of ideas and celebrate this area with us through our site specific performances.

There will be 4 performances of over 20 vignettes over Friday the 28th of March and Sunday the 30th of March. The slots run between: 7-8:30pm,9-10:30pm. Address: St Paul’s Lutheran Church of Williamsburg, 334 S 5th St 11211. The nearest subway is Marcy Ave JMZ.

DRESS WARMLY the CHAPEL is a chilly mistress.

Pieces will include:

The Chair, the Table

Dealing with how objects, people, and space inform and control one another, the project focuses on how an object can be made uncanny via its theatricalized setting. Even the most mundane object bears witness to an event. As objects of ritual, they may hold cherished memories or sacred lore.  Broken, misused, overused, ritualized or multiplied, objects can determine the nature of a space or the character of their users. 

Emma Stirling, Yates Norton with Artwork by Tom Laprade and Aaron Lehman.


Runaround 

This piece will explore issues of violence and alienation as a result of society’s taboos against female physicality. How and why do we destroy our own bodies, and what occurs at the breaking point? The artist will create a multitudinous self to present before the audience through a combination of audio and visual elements, which will be manifested and destroyed before the audience.

Carina Finn

 

Death is a Salesman

A woman confronts a used car salesman about faulty breaks on a car she purchased, then ends up discussing matters of life, death, and redemption, before finally partaking in a high-stakes game of scrabble.

Linda Wu

 

Ech0

A kiosk for temporal meditation and reflection. Modern science and modern thought (the Renaissance invention of perspective; Copernicus, Newton, Einstein) sought to demystify and explain physical space, leaving no place more special than any other; ech0 seeks to combine the notions of non-place (i.e. Internet) and locale (i.e. church) that relays transcendental experience and spirit while breaking conventional iconography. 

Daniel Levya


Host
A sound piece relating to the diverse history of the church’s inhabitants. A new denomination assumes ownership not so much adopting the presence of the previous tenants as they make their own mark, but unable to remove the past’s impact completely. A residue like ghosts exists in the space, and my sounds will be representative of that airiness; phasing in, phasing out.

Adam Stoves

Patient Saint
SAINT GENEVIEVE EXCLUSIVE APPEARANCE. In his penultimate demonstration, Dr. Charcots prize patient and celebrity hysteric displays the wrong symptoms.  

Samantha Beach, Kyle Bales and Group

Eulogy

We grieve alongside 7 Widows while a fallen poet mourns a life of unrealized love.

Shayfer James and Group

There Art Thou Happy
Shooting the Friar Lawrence scene for a modern re-telling of Romeo and Juliet, A film crew struggles to get the last shot.

Cleansing Concordia

An interactive ritual cleansing with volunteers from the audience where the participants will talk, recite an agreement together as they wash their hands of the dominant powers that be and reclaim their individualism. Gabriel Don

 

Whoso Walketh Wisely

 After facing expulsion from private school for starting up a coven-brothel, spirited Alice arrives on at the dusty doorstep of unsuspecting Frank with a backpack full of raw beef, desperately in need of an oven. Propelled by the illusion that they will soon part ways forever, these unlikely companions expose colors of each other long kept in the dark. But are they truly strangers? Or have they collided many times before?

Laura Heckel

 

Every Time I Break the 7th Commandment, An Angel Gets a Hard On

A visual exploration of the ideology behind one of the 10 commandment’s most disputed and argued over tenets, “Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery.” The point is to place the spectator at odds with his/her own sexuality and the fear of judgement. An investigation into the heart of desire, the sin of lust, and the castigation that follows.

Sebastian Pinaud

 

As well as visual art work from Ursula Mur, Satoshi Okada,  Terry Huber, Mohanee Alingasa Ramchandani’s ‘Visions of Meditative Practice,’ Michal Verred Ammar’s ‘Inner Rooms.’
