Jef Carnay

A Visual / Performance artist: exhibited his works in local and international art galleries, museums and alternative spaces: performed both local and international art events: curated local live art performances: member of the core committee of TutoK [artists initiative]: convener of the art event “Bulong” a night of poetry, songs and other performances: lead vocalist of the band “earthfishfish”.

Most of my works both visual and performance are situationers, my form of storytelling. I am now exploring the concept of what is seen against what is being experienced: what you can actually see doesn’t tell the whole story there is always more of what is physically present, some intangible concealed notions alongside the evident.
