Statement

Kari (Kai) Altmann is a globally nomadic artist who makes work in conceptually soft-branded “teams” which she treats as evolving palettes, production identities and states of mind.

She maintains a body of work that includes social feeds, installations, objects, images, music and videos, as well as languages and organizational taxonomies.

She is focused on the survival tactics and evolving ecologies of communal fantasy images or “meta images”,  as well as DIY soft power structures.

Her work often looks at sites of tension between large, abstract external systems and the intimate (natural, psychic, ancient) inner realm. She considers her work to be a set of negotiations with the future and the psychogeographical boundaries of overlapping cultural forms and ideologies.

Living and working around the world in extreme blends of first and third world, hyperurban hubs and off-grid havens, she authors her own hybrid responses to the forces and contexts around her as a means of developing her own sustainable power structures and forms–her own future terrains.
