Disciplines: Mixed media/interdisciplinair kunstenaar, Performancekunstenaar

Omschrijving werk

I am an artist, composer and performer. My work has taken the form of recordings, installations, performances, lectures and objects that explore collective listening, failure and hybridity. My current work involves researching the poetics and politics of erasure. This research draws from various disciplines, beginning with archeologies of memory storage technology, navigations of remythologized histories, and investigations in digital forgetting and identity politics. From the written word to memory chips, memory storage technologies have set a precedent for archival practices that neither forgive nor forget. Such practices reify hierarchical systems of knowledge production and distribution that simultaneously standardize dominant forms of knowledge, and erase knowledge deemed inferior or irrelevant. Loss, erasure and forgetting for me are generative methodologies; methods to reinvent histories; to mutate ideas and identities to the point that they are untraceable to their origins; to constantly refresh our relationships to the myths and semiotics that code our bodies. My research advocates a forgetting of established methods and systems, a breaking away from endless loops of absolute knowledge. I am invested in alternative modes of archiving (anarchives) as a method of dismantling imperialist hierarchies of knowledge. I am also interested in generative erasure as methods of contesting permanence as a measurement of success. Generative forms of erasure include forgetting, mutating and remythologizing. This research has thus far lead to works including ONLY EDISON COULD SPEAK TO THE DEAD, a sandpaper sleeved record of silence; MONTH OF FORGETTING, a month in which I abstained from the use of digital memory technology; ON BEING LEGIBLE, a lecture on the social and cultural implications of facial recognition technology, throughout which the performer manipulates a mask of their own face beyond the point of recognition.
