Bio

Magali Duzant is a NY-based interdisciplinary artist. Her work combines the  poetics of perception matched with a scientific approach in data collection to examine the subjectivity of seeing and the roles of technology and translation as mediators of lived experience.

Her work has been exhibited internationally most recently at the Queens Museum, Spring Break Art Fair, and Fridman Gallery in NY, Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, Melbourne’s Centre for Contemporary Photography. She has created a number of public commissions for BRIC, BikeNY, and Memorial Sloan Kettering amongst others. Her book, Light Blue Desire : A Manual to the Color Blue, a speculative manual to the color blue via a collection of idioms from over 35 languages, was published in 2018 by Conveyor Editions following the 2015 publication of, I Looked & Looked, a collection of 20 views of the moon on the night of Hurricane Sandy, inspired by the synchronicity of a romantic letter exchange between Stieglitz and O’Keeffe. She is the recipient of a 2018 New Work Grant (QCA/DCLA), 2016 SU-CASA grant, a QCA grant for a beta version for her public work, Live Streaming Sunset ( 2015 ). She has held residencies with Picture Berlin, Lumen, and NY’s NARS Foundation and is a 2017/18 Keyholder in Residence at the Lower East Side Printshop. She holds an MFA in Photography from Parsons The New School for Design and a BHA in Fine Arts and Visual Culture from Carnegie Mellon University.
