BID ON THE ART CREATED AT THE CABARET

These paintings were live created, painted during the multidisciplinary performance of painting and dance, where the painting was created through projections and the dancers danced through the projections, exploring the intersection of how dancers create the painting, and how a painter creates a dance.

The resulting artwork is a combination of the work of painter, Ania Telfer and dancers Janita Frantsi, and Kathleen Hughes, combined with the soundscape of Jacqueline Ohm.

During her time in Edmonton, Janita has worked as a dancer with several companies, such as KO Dance Projects, Mile Zero Dance, and Edmonton Opera.

Kathleen Hughes, dancer
Originally from Edmonton, Alberta, Kathleen began her love of dance with ballet training at an early age. She was later introduced to Modern dance while attending a dance program at Grant McEwan College. Her love of creating dances has brought her to produce and co-produce, choreograph and perform in many dance productions for Niagara Dance Company, KHDA and several independent projects.

Jacqueline Ohm, a dedicated visual and sound artist, has cultivated her practice over the past two decades. Although not formally trained, she has carved a path in both mediums, guided by a commitment to remain curious in her work and authentic in her approach. Jacqueline is inspired by the mundane and profound, harvesting ideas from daily life and her philosophical conversations with friends. Prior to becoming a mother in 2012, Jacqueline collaborated with numerous photographers across North America and Europe, and since motherhood she exclusively works with local film photographer, Sandy Phimester.

Under her musical guise, Conjvr, she explores the realms of electric guitar and loop pedals, writing songs about her work in academia, archetypes and her travels. Recently, she’s rediscovered her musical roots through classical piano, finding delight in spontaneous composition. In the past year, Jacqueline has been building on her illustration portfolio by experimenting with animated shorts to accompany recent musical work.
