Khristian Weeks's picture
Khristian Weeks is alive and has been living for well over 51 years. He is often feeling.  "I can feel the day away", says he. Just now he's feeling like he really needs to get his [act](sic) together. Some of the time he is a youngpeople teacher...much of the time, really. More on that later. And he wanted me to tell you that he is ALWAYS a father, of a daughter. Meanwhile, he has been doing and making "creative" things for most of his own life.  All of this means that these make up a '... more

Reverence

A series of works - Reverence Machines - that celebrate phenomena found in ordinary living.
Note: all video is for the purpose of documentation and not to be confused with works made FOR video. For best results please experience my work in "real life."

Triangulation

Participant generated performance installation. Instructions, materials list, and texts. 2017 (First realization).
This is a task-based process event. The method of realization called for in the instructions is on one hand open ended and accepting of whatever a participant might do, on the other it becomes like a kind of puzzle that is challenging yet meditative, for the person generating at that moment and for the participant-spectator.
I wish to engage larger numbers of participants and larger - even outdoor - spaces in the future. I can see the work being generated by dozens of people over a long period of time - days, weeks.

The quiet show

The quiet show is a monthly performance series that takes place in the Aside Gallery located in the CopyCat building, Baltimore.
I started the series in January of 2018. The first events were a curated comingling of live music, film projections, movement, installation, and poetry reading. Beginning in January 2019 we embarked on a live reading of Gertrude Stein's The Making of Americans. Every month nine people read aloud for 20 minutes each, totalling 3 hours. The book is 925 pages and so it has been estimated to take 18 months to complete. This December is our 12th reading.

  • Khristian Weeks' Installation

    "Khristian Weeks presented this installation on Thursday, July 29, 2015 at The Crown on Charles Street in Baltimore. Standing fans acting on a large plastic membrane filled the room with chaotic waves of ephemeral forms reminiscent of ocean waves on a rocky shore. The installation was the third of three different events Weeks produced on successive evenings for a series at The Crown called "Repeated Measures". Video recorded on crappy cell phone by Dan Conrad." Thank You Dan Conrad for your presence and kind support!
