Matty Davis is a co­-artistic director and performer within BOOMERANG. He is also a performance­ based visual artist whose work pits the body against often radical undertakings and journeys that explore the limits and empathic possibilities of embodiment, memory, and love, as well as the origin of materials and mark­ making. Davis has performed at the Watermill Center, Judson Church, the United Nations, in Performa 13 (with Guido van der Werve and Pedro Gómez Egaña) and Performa 15 (with Francesco Vezzoli and David Hallberg), and staged guerrilla­-style performances in Death Valley, upon the rural ball fields of Oklahoma, and atop deserted tractor trailers in the Great Smoky Mountains. www.mattywdavis.com
