Kamee Abrahamian is part of #TheGalleryProject. #TheGalleryProject includes artworks from 47 artists from 27 different countries. Each work reflects a unique perspective and as a whole, the exhibition series refuses to present a standardized narrative. Rather, it becomes clear that being queer means something different to each artist, whether sexually, politically, or aesthetically.
Each artist represented in the exhibition has developed their own strategies for coping with their lived realities and addressing (or not addressing) them in their art. The works displays sex, fragility, anger, courage, hope, nihilism, strength, fear, and beauty.
About the artwork:
My intention is to disrupt the status quo; to create work that digs into and unsilences a millefeuille of lost or untold stories, both ancestral and contemporary; and to dialogue with the unmapped, oppressed, and stagnant inside self and community.
About the artist:
Kamee was born in Scarborough, Ontario to an Armenian family, by way of Beirut, Lebanon; and arrives in the world today as a queer woman and a multidisciplinary producer / artist / facilitator / storyteller.
She has a BFA/BA in film and political science from Concordia University (Montreal, Quebec) and an MA in expressive art therapy from the European Graduate School (Saas Fee, Switzerland) — with a special focus on the integration of digital media. The bedrock of Kamee’s arts training is in classical ballet, theatre, and visual art. In collaboration with fellow artists and allies (lee williams boudakian, Katie Partlow, The Hye-Phen Mag), she continues to develop a body of work inclusive of film, performance, writing, digital art and design (Kalik.org, SaboteurProductions.com). Kamee is currently pursuing an MA/PhD in community, liberation and ecopsychologies at Pacifica Graduate Institute (Carpinteria, California) and is based in Portland, Oregon.
