Katie Macyshyn is from Toms River, NJ. In 2013, she received her BFA, with a focus in performance art, from the Corcoran College of Art + Design. Macyshyn’s art uses high camp to make the profane spiritual and vice versa. She has been included in various exhibitions including the (e)merge Art Fair at the Capitol Skyline Hotel, Soapbox series at Hillyer Arts Space, and NEXT at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. Macyshyn currently lives and works in Baltimore, MD.
To lose touch with the spirit of Earth is to lose Earth, but what do shamans look like in the age of the internet? Katie Macyshyn is a sex mystic serving theater, costume, video, sound, and installation to explore pop and presence. Her performances take the form of vignettes that can be remixed to create surprising synchronicities through layering and deconstruction.
