MsDMeanar Deb Rogers Debbie Doodar

I am an artist that uses a range of different materials and characters. I often work under my performance name of MsDMeanar. In this character I have been playing around with performative acts, looking for ways to transform myself. This has led me to explore notions of animalistic behaviours, and the power of witchcraft and shamanist traditions that help people improve health or make change in their lives.

MsDMeanar has become dog headed during this time of transformation. Merging with my dog Percy, I am drawing on the myth of the cynocephalus, the strangers whose voice is closer to a bark, and who are consequently misunderstood and misrepresented.

Debbie Doodar is the name I use when fabricating items and ideas for MsDMeanar to play with. As Debbie Doodar I reconstruct garments and make sculptures to use during performative actions.

And a little experimental performative ritual in the space
