Wanbli Gamache (b.1989) is a Chicago based new media performance artist. She uses video, performance, and New Media formats to dematerialize dynamics of spectacle and intimacy through eroticized mediation of the body. In ritualized actions, Gamache addresses consumption and voyeurism through forms of reconstruction of her body. She is an alumni of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Film, Video, New Media, and Animation Department and currently lives and works in Chicago. Gamache has exhibited work at Links Hall (Chicago, IL), Sullivan Galleries, Zhou B Art Center, and ACRE Gallery (Chicago, IL); the Supernova Digital Animation Festival in Denver, Colorado, and MANA Contemporary New Media Artist-in-residence.
