Performance artists from Chicago embark on a short European tour organized by Defibrillator Gallery. The venues are vastly different. Starting in a historic drawingsociety in Dordrecht, Netherlands, and ending in a brewery-turned-art-community in Pärnu, Estonia, Helsinki falls in between. ROVING aims to invigorate international performance art relations that were hampered by the pandemic. Building and maintaining international connections is essential to the ecosystem of performance art and ROVING is DFBRL8R’s way of contribution to
the medium.

Roberto Sifuentes is an interdisciplinary performance artist whose work fuses highly charged cultural issues with wild pop culture aesthetics. From homeland security to extreme reality television – from video games to military training – from fetishism to evangelism – Sifuentes creates interactive performance installations where personas wind their way through psycho/sexual/political/universes. The result is a cinematic style that uses satire, humor, and spectacle to peel away the viewer’s protective layers and reveal society’s desires, fears and
obsessions.
