Touching You, Touching Me, 2011

A performance created for the exhibition Splay at Roxaboxen Exhibitions in Chicago, IL (August 26, 2011). Performers: Steven Frost & Michael Earl. Choreographed by Steven Frost. Script adapted from “Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond. Exhibition Curated by Marissa L. Perel. Video by Ivan Lozano.

Steven Frost (b.1981, Woodsville, NH) recently relocated from Chicago to Los Angeles, IL. Frost received his BFA from Alfred University in 2004 and an MFA in Fiber & Material Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011.

Steven Frost’s video, sculpture, and fiber-based works use: upholstery, macramé, beadwork, and other craft materials to create garish tools and evocative moments. His work builds on the clashes and mash-ups of parallel social spheres. Frost relishes in the kind of amateur mastery found in “low” craft culture and the performance of secular sacred rituals like parades and sports.

Steven completed a summer residency at ACRE this year. Later on we will catch up with him about his practice, process and residency experience.
