Born in New Zealand, Dobill is a Brooklyn, NY based performance artist who has been showcased across this country. Exploring physical endurance, his focus is on the body, seeking communication within physical and mental limits.
Receiver is an endurance performance and installation in which the artist is submerged up to his nose in a pool of milk. As milk drips in front of his nostrils from above, it will be publicly performed for eight or more hours until the artist is broken by the action. Receiver is part of a continuing investigation by Dobill into the mental and physical limits of the body as a conduit for shared energy experience, one which transforms the body from stress into an open medium for the audiences' projected thoughts, morals, and emotions.
