WHO: Louise Liliefeldt, performance artist, painter and teacher of performance art at the University of Toronto
WHEN: Sunday, noon
WHERE: Connaught Building, University of Toronto (1 Spadina Crescent)
CLOTHING: "I bought my boots about eight years ago from a friend. I paid about $15 for them. My pants cost $65 three years ago at the Jean Machine (Eaton Centre, Yonge and Dundas, 416-593-0861, and others). My avocado-coloured military jacket was $8 at Value Village (1319 Bloor West, 416-539-0585, and others). My turtleneck was a gift from a friend in 2002. Of my four rings, two were gifts from my mum and dad from their trip to South Africa, one was given to me by a friend 14 years ago and the fourth I bought in Istanbul in 1999. A friend gave me this black hat with grey fake fur in the winter of 1994."
HAIR: "My friend Fred Rowe cuts my hair. Fred cuts hair out of his home, and he rocks."
MY STYLE: "Low-maintenance, inexpensive and practical."
INTO: "Large bodies of water in general (but almost nothing beats the oceans), cycling, teaching, watching films, a nice stiff drink (or two) and, now that I have prescribed eyewear (not shown here), reading for pleasure is something I'm way more into. I love working with artists on their ideas, figuring out ways of executing what's on their mind in their preferred medium. A two-channel, two-monitor video document of an untitled performance I did as part of the group show What It Feels Like For A Girl at the Art Gallery of York University (Ross Building, 4700 Keele, 416-736-5169) is up until February 1. I'm working on a lecture and workshop that I'll be presenting at the University at Buffalo at the end of February."
