Fresh Talk: Binelde Hyrcan

July 30th, 2015 · Comments

Artist Binelde Hyrcan is participating in the Venice Art Bienniale for the first time this year. He's showing a poignant short video in the Angola Pavilion's featured group exhibition On Ways of Traveling. In the work titled Cambeck, four boys imagine themselves touring the world in a limousine. They transcend their reality...if only for a moment.

Fresh Talk: Ana Mendez

July 22nd, 2015 · Comments

Miami-born artist Ana Mendez talks about Liminal Being, her action-based performance project inspired by Maya Deren's 1940s surrealist film Meshes of the Afternoon. In this new work, Mendez repeatedly enacted a fall up and down a flight of stairs inside Giant Motors, a former car repair shop during the Auto Body video and performance event presented during Miami Art Week 2014.

Fresh Talk: Camille Norment

July 9th, 2015 · Comments

American-born artist Camille Norment lives and works in Norway. We recorded the episode inside the Nordic Pavilion at the 56th Venice Art Biennale. Norment's project animates a space designed to converse with the surrounding topography, weather, and natural light. Titled Rapture, her elegant, immersive sonic environment evokes both harmony and dissonance.
