Lorene Boboushian has tramped around as a scholarship and food stamp funded artist with the privilege to drain herself of funds and energy in Athens, Beirut, Zagreb, Berlin, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Her work includes formal solos based on skewering white femininity, New York energy, and researching family history in Lebanon; intimate duets juxtaposing the monstrous and sublime through pre-verbal voice work; and collaborative site specific works on cow farms and construction sites.
