Nora Ligorano

Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese have been collaborating together for the past twelve years. Their artists books, videotapes, performances and installations have been shown in the United States and Europe. They have received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, New York Foundation for the Arts, and the Jerome Foundation.

Since 1980, they have made seven videotapes and five performances. Their most recent videotapes are "Hell" from Black Holes/Heavenly Bodies and "The Bible Belt." They are currently working on a series of videobooks: book structures that incorporate video. They are also at work on two feature-length video productions, which will be completed in 1995.
