Xtracurricular: Jill Magid

Artist talk by Jill Magid. While on a research trip, Magid witnessed a mysterious shooting on the steps of the Texas State Capitol by Fausto Cardenas. Nothing is known of Cardenas’s motivations, but his gesture of shooting into the sky on the steps of the capitol, where he knew he would be immediately captured, reads symbolically as both tragic and poetic. Magid connects his action to Faust, an obvious but ultimately fruitful and complex avenue of exploration, as Goethe’s nineteenth-century drama traffics in similar themes of tragedy, psychology, and futility.

IMHO with Ligorano/Reese

Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese in conversation with Heather Wagner. Topics: Current exhibition "Crater New York: A Lunar Drawing Contest" as well as other works by the "two-headed" artist duo.

Crater New York: a Lunar Drawing Contest

An installation of the moon with colonies created by participating artists. Contestants draw from the model using either a computer or pen and paper, and in the end, a jury of esteemed experts chooses the winner. The winner receives a plot of real estate on the moon.

Yu-Chin Tseng (Taiwan)

Mr. Tseng (Taiwan) creates pieces in film and video, as well as in fiction and poetry. His work explores feelings of isolation and of being invisible in an unknown world and has been included in numerous festivals throughout Taiwan and Asia, winning several important awards. In 2007 he was selected to represent Taiwan in Documenta 12 in Kassel, Germany. He has also created stage designs for several theater companies, and his design for the Taitung Theater Group’s production of Our Snake received Taiwan’s prestigious Golden Harvest Award.

Eric Siu (Hong Kong)

Eric Siu (Hong Kong) has been described as one of Hong Kong’s most accomplished new media artists. His interactive media projects demonstrate his thorough knowledge of the technical aspects of digital media, as well as his ability to deconstruct digital images in ways that are both enlightening and amusing.

Jean Shin (U.S.A./Korea)

Jean (USA/Korea) creates elaborate sculptures and site-specific installations that suggest imaginary communities through the use of accumulated cast-offs. Mary Ceruti writes, "Jean Shin uses discarded material (the excess, the forgotten, the no longer useful) in works that operate between abstraction and representation. Made from the remnants of contemporary urban life, Shin's sculptures form a sort of visual history and a social mapping."

Mafalda Santos (Portugal)

Mafalda Santos (Portugal). Organizational schemes, networks, interconnection and principles of scale and composition are determinant in Mafalda’s work. Expanded drawings on murals or ground works cull their information from computer interface, books and archives to create a simplified imagery that reflects “a moment/place in a mental or social structure of relations.” The artist also considers that they offer a comment on the specific context for which the work was produced.

Moira Ricci (Italy)

Moira Ricci (Italy). Central to Moira’s work is the world of family relationships, and the family home as the natural area in which these relationships are played out. Putting aside her own emotions, Ricci turns her own personal narrative into fertile ground for thinking about the world we live in and translating this into her photography and video.

Rashaad Newsome (U.S.A.)

Rashaad Newsome (USA). Rashaad’s videos, performances, sculptures, and photographs interrogate notions of cultural/ social signifiers as well as how they are formed. They also analyze the complexity of the desire for power and acceptance that is formative for those who are placed in a subaltern position. As Rashaad says “I feel that a large part of the process of identification, for one placed in this position, is folded into everyday life. I use things I see in everyday life in order to decipher this complex psychic structure”.

Hung Nguyen Manh (Vietnam)


Hung Nguyen Manh is an artist, a self-taught composer and an active participant in the “alternative” art scene in Hanoi. As an artist whose practice is driven by interdisciplinarity, his work investigates current symbology as opposed to a Vietnamese/Oriental aesthetic that reaches into the past for visual vocabulary.Mr. Nguyen’s residency at Location One is supported by the Asian Cultural Council.

Aoife Collins (Ireland)

Aoife Collin's (Ireland) interdisciplinary practice is shaped by recurrent themes of permutation, multiplicity, cultural paraphernalia and mass identification. Works are made out of existing materials, substances and structures that are transferred into new forms of narration. In her attempt to open up the realm of possibility, the artist pays close attention to the ability of objects to role-play and the extent of their mutability.

Kuba Bakowski (Poland)

Kuba Bakowski (Poland). Themes of overcoming gravitation and the exploration of physical limitations of one's body mark Kuba’s diverse body of work. As he investigates the confrontation between the real world and the artificial world generated by digital media, his approach is part utopian, part ironic, and is tinged with a perverse sense of humor.

Daniel Andersson (Finland)

Daniel Andersson (Finland). Fundamental questions about the world are a constant thread in Andersson’s work. The artist attempts to illustrate these complex questions in series of works developed over long periods of time. The metaphorical power of images is a compelling source for the artist, as is the impact of different mythologies and belief systems of our day.

Hermelinde Hergenhahn (Germany)

Hermelinde Hergenhahn's (Germany) drawing practice, which extends into the public space, has been refered to as “taking a line for a walk, but …a walk on the wild side – a persistent, jerky, scatological line whose erratic (and erotic) wanderings describe a world both comic and melancholic, quirky and unsettling…”. Displaced and off-center figures populate hundreds of small drawings. In her writings, films and installation work Hermelinde defines her approach as one of “critical nearness.”

Katia Kameli (France)

Katia Kameli (France) is a Franco-Algerian artist and filmmaker whose practice is marked by the exploration of multiplicity and the in-between. In her video, photography and sculpture work, the artist investigates intercultural spaces, intersecting identities and their construction. As she herself says: “Fluxes of people are automatically creating hybridisations, indeed new spaces, thoughts and situations.”

23 May 2007: Amanda McDonald Crowley – Eyebeam

Collaboration in New Media Art: Does collaboration constitute compromise, act as a catalyst, or infer complexity?
