About the artists:
AABier is an ongoing collaboration between the sisters Adina Bier and Arielle Bier. They have been living and working together in Brooklyn since 2008. Arielle Bier is a 2011 MFA candidate at ICP-Bard and received her BA from NYU in 2005. Adina Bier received her BFA from SMFA and Tufts in 2007.
Their work includes performance/installation, incorporating hand-made costuming and sculptural objects. Their work focuses on relationships and environments. Within the situations and atmospheres that AABier create, they explore the notions of creature comforts, pop-culture influences, territories, and flight of the imagination. Metaphors of fantasy are manifested in studying the boundaries and weights of connection. Their work challenges the effects of limitations and pushes at social norms, misconceptions and ideals.
AABier have performed at Maximum Perception Performance Art Festival, NY, Fountain Art Fair, Miami, FL, LUMEN Art Festival, NY, and ACG Gallery, NY. AABier have also performed internationally in Berlin and in Italy, in a collaborative project, Swimming Cities of Serenissima, during the Venice Biennale in 2009.
