Alumna Natalia Panfile (IMDA MFA '10) will be exhibiting her videos at the Montpelier Arts Center. Her Body/Food exhibition will run from February 3 - March 30, 2012.

Natalia Panfile is a performance artist who will be investigating videos of past performances. She will be performing a piece called Food for Thought during the reception on February 3, 2012 from 7-9pm. This piece investigates issues of cleanliness and purity related to being my mother's daughter... and parallels my relationship with my motherland, Moldova. For the piece, the artist will sift through 400 lbs of buckwheat grain placed on the floor where Ms. Panfile will be removing any impurities, reflecting the hard agricultural work of women from her native Moldova.
