effie bowen is an anti disciplinary artist making work that examines how obedience is enforced by objects and training.


Fascinated by forms which inhibit, support, or restrain movement, the practice materializes through perverting use value and exploring the impact objects hold outside their systematized context.

They have exhibited work at ICA Richmond, Bass + Reiner, Baby Company, Danspace Project, The Knockdown Center, Center for Performance Research, Movement Research, Ausland (DE), Ponderosa (DE)

and performed for Narcissister, Jen Rosenblit, Deville Cohen, Ryan McNamara, Kim Brandt, Pope L. and others at The Kitchen, The Whitney, Tanzhaus Zurich, Tanz im August, MoMA PS1, The Guggenheim, ICA Boston and Performance Space New York.

effie has a BFA in Dance from Hollins University and an MFA in Sculpture + Extended Media from Virginia Commonwealth University.
