SKOTE (Jill Pangallo & Alex P. White)
Visual Arts Residency
Founded by artists Jill Pangallo and Alex P White, SKOTE is a performance collaboration dedicated to the movement arts, and the politic of otherness. SKOTE are directors, choreographers, designers and performers. Their work is a hybrid of dance for camera and video installation with a distinct style rooted in the queer history of camp, mime, clowns and 70’s pedestrian movement practices. SKOTE believes speaking through an/other’s voice is the contemporary condition and that we are all media constructions – recorded, reordered, coded and decoded, duplicated ad nauseam – a type of decay they appreciate and study. Based in New York City, SKOTE has performed, shown and screened internationally in galleries, nightclubs, public spaces and theaters since 2006. SKOTE most recently performed at Socrates Sculpture Park, Judson Church with Movement Research, Bodega Gallery, Participant Inc., and La MaMaGalleria. And solo shows at Regina Rex, Brooklyn; and Night Gallery, Los Angeles. Their video work has been screened at the MIX NYC film festival, Vox Populi, NoMinino, Ecuador; and The Israeli Center for Digital Art, Holon.
