M _ _ _ ER is a solo work by interdisciplinary artist Autumn Knight that considers how the concepts of “mother,” “murder,” and “matter” shape experiences of intimacy. Knight utilizes non-linear improvisation, sculpture, and manipulation of scenic elements like light and sound as tools for deeper inquiry.

Autumn Knight is an interdisciplinary artist working with performance, installation, video, and text. Drawing from her training in theatre and the psychology of group dynamics, Knight makes performances that reshape our perceptions of authority figures, power dynamics, and audience expectations of live experiences.

Her work has been presented at various institutions including The Institute for Contemporary Art (VCU), Richmond, Virginia; Human Resources, Los Angeles; Krannert Art Museum,  Akademie der Kunste, Berlin, Portland Institute for Contemporary Art. Her performance and video work are held in the permanent collection of the Studio Museum in Harlem. Knight participated in the 2019 Whitney Biennial as a performance and video artist.She recently completed a performance/video residency (2020) with The Kitchen, a center for art, video, music, dance, performance, film and literature in NYC.
