Chelsea Coon is a performance artist whose work examines beginnings and endings, life and death, the internal and external, and imminence of existence; collisions of space, phases, the simultaneous speeding up and slowing down of time, cycles, and the way in which the body on an elemental level is rooted to space. She is interested in microscopic moments that usually go unnoticed, and through the utilization of duration in performances, applies a focus to them. She has performed across North America, Europe and Asia, notably at: Tempting Failure (London, UK), CREATurE Live Art Festival (Kaunas, Lithuania), Dhaka Live Art Biennale (Dhaka, Bangladesh), Kolkata International Performance Art Festival (Kolkata, India), PALS: Performance Art Links (Stockholm, Sweden), Water Tower Arts Festival (Sofia, Bulgaria), Experimental Room Festival (Barcelona, Spain), bridge (Bangkok, Thailand) and Art Space Tetra (Hakata, Japan) among others. She is the recipient of the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant and has been a contributing writer for Big Red and Shiny. Coon lives and works Los Angeles.
