Peter Kalisch

"I am a 22 year old visual/performance artist based in Los Angeles, CA. I have a strong connection to my family's German heritage, the conservatism of which has defined my upbringing. From my observation, the postmodern condition has led to a type of disconnection; from shared values, lived intimacy, from actual human connection, and primarily, from our physical bodies. There is a dire need for us to be vulnerable, to experience humility, to remove ourselves from the comfortability of our daily lives. This is what I seek to do in my work, to create meaningful connections through an intense amount of self-reflection, self-awareness, and more often than not, self-deception. A rampant addiction to consumption and dependence on technology has produced an unmooring, a disconnect from a sense of purpose. Therefore, I believe art can reinstill this sense of purpose in those around me."
