  • Research Description

    I see my work as a consecutive set of acts and ideas that complement and interrupt the flow of the everyday. It’s a chain of routine-breaking routines. My role as an artist, researcher, educator, activist, cultural organizer, and producer can be understood as a cohesive whole, which develops within specific social situations and exists within and outside of conventional art settings. Presentations in museums, galleries, and academic contexts represent only a part of my overall production. A preoccupation with the theory and practice of a socially engaged art, which is rooted in daily exchanges, has led me to the formulation of an aesthetics based on public interventions, social interactions, games, and temporal rearrangements. The range of my projects encompasses anti-monuments, language games, artist's books, radio works, lunch events, experimental workshops, events, and activities, as well as more conventional work in the form of installations, video, photography, painting, printmaking, and drawing. Regular participation in the organization and production of cultural and social networks, such as art collectives like 16Beaver Group (NY) and various immigrant grassroots organizations is also a very significant part of my work. The circulation of my work in international circuits is a direct result of an ongoing engagement with the culture of cross-class cosmpolitanism.

        • Curated by Niels Van Tomme, Director of Arts and Media at Provisions Learning Project in Washington, DC and organized with the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture, UMBC, Where Do We Migrate To? explores contemporary manifestations of required mobility as well as experiences of displacement and exile, and examines how intensified situations of transition inexorably undermine our cultural and personal notions of settlement and belonging. In establishing an imaginative framework that allows artworks to inspire new insights about such conditions, the exhibition also questions notions of inherence and destiny. Where Do We Migrate To? features the work of nineteen internationally recognized artists and collaboratives including: Acconci Studio, Svetlana Boym, Blane De St. Croix, Lara Dhondt, Brendan Fernandes, Claire Fontaine, Nicole Franchy, Andrea Geyer, Isolla & Norzi, Kimsooja, Pedro Lasch, Adrian Piper, Raqs Media Collective, Société Réaliste, Julika Rudelius, Xaviera Simmons, Fereshteh Toosi, Philippe Vandenberg, and Eric Van Hove. An accompanying film and video program, curated by Sonja Simonyi, will feature eight programs/screenings by a wide range of international filmmakers and video artists including: Ulirch Seidl, Ursula Biermann, Hermann Asselberghs, Lonnie Van Brummelen, Berni Searle, Chantal Akerman, Pavel Brailia, Egle Rakauskaite, Tanja Ostojic, Oliver Husain, Usha Seejarim, and Isaac Julien. A national tour is currently being organized through November, 2013.
