With a knowing nod to the history and clichés of performance art, Boehme examines performance as relic, lecture, work, observation, language, and sign system. Boehme’s work humorously inquires into the history and continuation of performance art practices, within which he has worked for several decades. This work will articulate a functional vocabulary for Performance Art, giving audiences a framework for further discourse.

Weaned in the Windansea of La Jolla, California a product of boarding schools and graduating from Army and Navy Academy. John G. Boehme’s early art practice included painting, sculpture, performance, video and digital technology, installation and photography. Boehme describes recent work as “trans-disciplinary” often employing performance, video, audio and objects in a number pieces simultaneously, Boehme is not constrained to any particular creative mode and therefore utilizes integrated approaches to realize the work. John continues to have exhibitions, screenings and participate in festivals across Canada, the Americas, Australia, United Kingdom, Europe and China. John is a continuing faculty in the Visual Arts Department at Camosun College in Victoria, BC.
