  What are you trying to communicate with your work? If I have to point out something in particular and put it in words (which I find extremely difficult as I cannot grasp a clear and determined intention throughout my work), I would say that I do my best to share with others this strange and particular feeling I face towards my own perception of time: how it relates to our memories and our own history, how it relates to and pins down our lives. I try to reveal a sort of strange and... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? It depends on the project I am working on. My work is both figurative and abstract, but above all conceptual. I always work from a theme that appeals to me and will allow me to deepen my research through the creative process. I am interested in the poetic expression that evolves through the theme and the conceptual aspect of the project. What I try to communicate is expressed through the idea, the purpose, as well as the color,... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? Inspired by the work of Brion Gysin, Dan Graham, Genesis P-Orridge, my work proposes a meta-religion based on two main things: rock & roll and mysticism. Functioning like a secret order that emphasizes the spiritual attributes of musical movements like the blues, rasta, Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth (TOPY), Texan sixties psychedelic rock, or German krautrock, I try to propose a new iconography based on the music and musicians...

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? There is no judgment in my work, no denunciation. My field of play is a country where the landscape is shaped by and for people on the move. Without a second thought, this world is going through a perpetual mutation, which sees a new city rising, another one dying, leaving them laid out indistinctly one next to the other. This visual chaos is my source of inspiration. What I want to share and convey is a kind of bliss, calm,... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? I consider my work political, but I prefer the subtle process of reflection over the shoveling of an opinion down a viewer's throat. That's probably because I don't think art is a political or emancipatory force—rather, it is what Fredric Jameson labeled “just another ‘pop’ in an all-pervasive pop-culture.” Thus, I’m not interested in examining or establishing perceived truths; instead, I’m interested in exploring the Absurd—the...

The Marginal Labor Left for Humans: Brett Wallace’s AMAZING INDUSTRIES

by Joel Kuennen
SPRING/BREAK Art Show 2018, more than 100 curators will feature artists and exhibitions that consider the theme: Stranger Comes to Town. It’s been said that all great literature boils down to one of two stories: a hero goes on a journey or a stranger comes to town. “Who and what is this Stranger?” ask SPRING/BREAK curators and founders, Ambre Kelly and Andrew Gori. “Is their travel into the unknown always an act of heroism to some, of colonialism or contamination and infiltration to...

Distorted Personhood: Sabato Visconti’s DACALOGUE

Other ArtSlant Prize IX catalogue essays: David Rios Ferreira & Katya Grokhovsky   Although the law is perhaps the discourse that most literally governs citizenship, U.S. national culture—the collectively forged images, histories, and narratives that place, displace, and replace individuals in relation to the national polity—powerfully shapes who the citizenry is, where they dwell, what they remember, and what they forget. —Lisa Lowe, Immigrant Acts In 1986, Sabato Visconti...
