Details: Borusky writes: “Persona within art can be understood as a lens by which to view or understand art making; meaning, what is the physical body behind the work produced and shown, and how is that generating particular affect(s) for the viewer? Or, it can be seen as an artistic endeavor in and of itself; meaning, how does one observe and understand performativity of self, the flux and presentation of identity-making, within real-time, and then extrapolate that experience for viewers outside of the originally designated site of construction?”
