Diane Teramana

Last Name: 
Teramana
First Name: 
Diane

Diane Teramana is an active presence behind the video camera. She is both outside the visual image, sequestered as director of the framed space, and inside the total product as one of the necessary voices in dialogue . . . What appears to be a neglect of the body's expression in the highly mechanized activity of contemporary video art is not found in Teramana's work . . . She seems concerned with the physical, and in this unlikely medium she has accomplished an unlikely task - the human being uses, rather than is submerged by the computer, hence celebrating humanity. NEW ART EXAMINER One of the most complex videos, showcasing special effects and editing, is Diane Teramana's sophisticated Bare Canvas, Blank Mind. Teramana segues between black and white and color, through photos, home movies and altered video shots to present another image of family and home . . . (It) is poetic and evocative, yet speaks even more in the fragmented imagistic language of dreams. With its varied soundtrack and haunting yet evasive meaning, Teramana's work reveals an accomplished artist with an established working knowledge of the medium. ACE MAGAZINE As a Video Artist, Diane Teramana has received numerous Fellowships, Grants and Awards for her work, most notable, a major media fellowship, a ten thousand dollar award for her work in video in 1999. In 1993, she presented her video work in a one-woman show at The Knitting Factory, NYC (curator, Stephen Vitiello), and in 1995, she screened her work and was a panelist for the show, Internal Clatter: Women's Video Art in the Seventies, at the Contemporary Arts Center. She has had numerous other one-woman shows including C.A.G.E. Gallery, the Cincinnati Film Society, the 1989 Athens International Film & Video Festival where she also served as juror, the Dayton Visual Art Center, and Prince Ubu Gallery (Columbus). Her work was selected for a group show by John Hanhardt, then film & video curator at the Whitney Museum, (currently at the Guggenheim). She has completed six residencies at the Experimental Television Center in Owego, New York. Her decision to create her first performance work was inspired by her collaboration with Performance Artists Pauline Oliveros (Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, 1988), and Kiken Chin (C.A.G.E. Gallery, Cincinnati, 1989). She received grants from the Cincinnati Arts Allocation and the Ohio Arts Council for her 1992 performance, Mickey Dipped in the Black Stream featuring Poet/Dancer Michele Morgan. In a review of the performance Jud Yalkut states: "Teramana's search for a collective catharsis through the multi-media juxtaposition of audio, video, poetry and dance has reached a new apotheosis with this collaborative work. It is an effective integration of the video medium in both its composed and spontaneous forms." (Dialogue, October, 1992) Subsequent performances include: The Cleveland Performance Art Festival; C.A.G.E. Gallery; Base Art Gallery, Cincinnati; N.A.I.V.E.'s Karnivale Arts Festival, Columbus. She affirms: "my work is the most and least significant thing about me." GRANTS/RECOGNITION RETROSPECTIVE.
