Monty Cantsin Amen
Performance and video artist, industrial music and electropop singer, and founder of Neoism. Recent work involves noise installations and performances with electrically modified file cabinets. He also founded the “Machine Sex Action Group” which realizes theatrical cyber-futuristic body performances in an S/M style. His more controversial works involve vandalism and gore, painting large X’s in his own blood on the walls of modern art museums, and in doing so he has been banned from many of the world’s art galleries, a status he holds with pride. In March 2004 he was awarded the Canadian Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media arts.
