Art is broken - Artist's Talks
Time & Location
About the Event
Andrea Khôra (Seattle, 1989) graduated Cum Laud with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing from the University of Washington, and with a Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Studio Art from Brandeis University. In 2014, she was awarded a grant from Artist Trust to complete a project while on residency at Heima in Seyðisfjörður, Iceland. From 2014–2017, she lived between Seyðisfjörður and Florence, Italy, before moving to London in 2017.
She has shown internationally, between the United States, France, Italy, Iceland, Colombia, and the United Kingdom. Her first solo exhibition was at the LungA Art Festival in Iceland in 2015. Currently, Khôra resides in London, where she has completed her MA in Contemporary Art Practice: Critical Practice at the Royal College of Art. In autumn 2019, she will begin a PhD in Fine Arts at Goldsmiths, University of London with the working title, New Sight: The Alchemy of Surveillance into Resistance in Near Future Worlds.
The overarching theme of her practice is the idea that reality is fluid and constantly emerging. She explores the flexibility of reality through relational boundaries, uncovering ecological interconnected states in natural, psychological, social, and political realms. Her projects question the elements that make up a particular perspective, creating portals into possible futures. As a research-based artist, the forms of her projects are dictated by the concerns encountered in the research. They often take the form of sculpture, audio, installation, video, and even interactive workshops.
