Bio

Hi, my name is Pampi. Welcome! third eye fell refers to the body of work I produce as a multi media performance artist and poet, based out of Somerville, MA and a resident of Boston for over 17 years. I believe in and work towards the application of the arts as a vehicle for social justice: While my forte is in fabric, pen, ink and paint, I enjoy experimenting with video, poetry, song, movement and installation – often featuring blood, bones and goddesses.  In my work I engage issues of identity, gender, sexuality and the body politic. As an artist of color, I am committed to creating interactive educational art pieces that are accessible and grounded in rigorous cultural research and interpretation. Since 2008, I have developed and performed over 45 original community performances and co-produced over 20 curated interactive multi-media art events. Increasingly, I am seeking to collaborate on public art projects in order to create more permanent work dedicated to infusing communities with pride in their reclaimed histories and vibrant cultures.
