I had the great pleasure of meeting and working with our next featured artist, Mette Loulou von Kohl, through the performance series The Sphinx Returns at Grace Exhibition Space. von Kohl presented an emotionally charged performance fusing her personal and political relationship with the historic figure Leila Khaled. Within the feature below, von Kohl reveals elements of her performance practice, thoughts on "gender politics" and the integration of choreography and performance art. - Quinn Dukes
