One Man Nation

One Man Nation

Real Name:
Tara Transitory
Tara Transitory aka One Man Nation makes work which some consider art, some consider music and some consider trash. But clearly, it never quite fits into contemporary categories. She is trans, nomadic and is exploring the intersections of gender, noise and ritual through sound, performance and the collective trance.

She splits her time between asia<>europe where she co-directs the performance space e x t a n t a t i o n together with Sara Mikolai. Currently, she is working on a video-art project based on ephemeral public interventions she does with other trans* women in south-east asia.

Tara performs solo as One Man Nation, with Truna as { 23 Shadows of Amnesia } and with Pierre Bastien as Mecanation. She has collaborated extensively and her past collaborations include Bambu Wukir, Hilary Jeffrey, Iman Jimbot, Richard Scott and Sara Mikolai; has performed internationally at Club Transmediale (Berlin), donaufestival (Krems), Gaite Lyrique (Paris), Guggenheim Museum (Bilbao), ISEA (Ruhr), Museum of Contemporary Art (Taipei), Sonic Protest (Paris) and Steirischer Herbst (Graz) amongst many others.
