Exposition: Trapped to Reveal - On webcam mediated communication and collaboration. (01/01/2012) by Annie Abrahams
Ylva Gislen 10/12/2012 at 22:51

What I really miss is a mapping of and a discussion about the work of Annie Abrahams in relation to the work of other artists and artistic researchers who are working with similar issues. From the top of my tongue I could mention Susan Kozel’s ongoing work in Social choreographies, Mette Ingvartsen’s Where is my privacy (in collaboration with Sira Foighel Brutmann and Manon Santkin) and projects such as Threads and Stitching together made by Åsa Lindström and Kristina Ståhl. How would Annie Abrahams describe and explain the intentions, methods and outcomes of her projects in relation to for example those explorations of self representation, communication, timing, mistaking, bodily presence/absence?
