Garbage World is a performance series that began in Chicago during 2009, and developed over the course of a year with four events. Garbage World 4 was a three day festival with twenty-four performances. It is now re-beginning in Philadelphia after a two year hiatus. This fifth iteration features visiting Chicago artists Jose Hernandez and Sofia Moreno.

In seeking artists, Garbage World focuses on those who are committed to an intentional use of the body and self as their primary medium. Video is included in this iteration of Garbage World because of the way it can alter/edit the body and present private/dangerous situations in a public context.

EILEEN LILLIAN DOYLE

Eileen Lillian Doyle began Garbage World from the urge to see artists perform in a situation with more allowances than limitations. Messes, grotesqueness, cleanliness, and joy happen in life; therefore, they are not excluded from this event.

SOFIA MORENO

Sofia Moreno was born and raised in Coahuila, Mexico. In 1994, she immigrated to the United States, where she currently lives and works. Prior to moving to Chicago, Sofia lived in Texas. Sofia is a mixed media artist and her subjects include expressions of the divine and profane, exploring the body, sensuality, religion and culture. Her credits include working in curatorial projects along side s+s project from 2009 to present: Within the Body, From Diva to Mundane, Elektro-Sexual and Fill-In, as well as co-curatorial projects such as Heaven Knows, Scented Illusions: Avon, and Art and the Homoccult Show.

As Ishtar s/he can be seen performing in clubs, muddy basements, and various underground venues throughout America.

Jose has worked with artist Ginger Krebs in both Myth & Continent, and Rehearsals for Becoming Gods. He is a member of Antibody Corporation where he has worked with choreographer Adam Rose in Antitrust Circus and Holocene Overkill (Phase One)/(Phase Two). Other collaborations include Pure Magical Love (Heather Lynn), Natalie Murillo (Spacerwoman), and Gel Set. Currently he is working with artist Jonathan Sommer, B!TCH3Z Drinking Project.
