TABOO - TRANSGRESSION - TRANSCENDENCE
in Art & Science
27-29 September 2023, Malta Society of Arts, Valletta
Landscapes are changing on a different pace than human beings. How to create a collective memory of our environments in order to take conscience of its changes on a cultural level? I will take the example of Vietnam about how war and colonisation radically changed the landscape and present some of my digital and installation work as possible ways of commemoration and memory.
Kim Doan Quoc works and lives in Paris (FR) where she is a resident artist at DOC! Her art practice extends to different mediums: installations, video and performances. Her body of works uses various representations of the body, genders and flora to question the place of humans within nature. She often collaborates with other artists and scientists to explore this question. Kim focuses on the notion of safe and protected spaces as well in political terms as ecological. Since 2015, her work as a visual artist and performer has been shown internationally in places such as Trafo theater (Budapest), Le Wonder, 110 galerie, After Hours (Paris), Le Nova (Brussels), TTT 2018 (Mexico City), Fashion Week SS2018 (Berlin), the Faculty of the Arts of Lisbon, Grace Exhibition Space, the Queens Museum (New York City)
