Dinka Pignon Artist Presentation and Reception
Dates: Exhibition > August 23 – September 8
Artist Presentation and Reception > August 29
Dinka Pignon will be the Artist in Residence from August 15-30. Pignon is an interdisciplinary media artist working with spatial video installation and performance art. Her experimental practice is characterized by a strong affinity for the phenomenal, liminal, conceptual and minimal. Her work is situated in the field of ‘mixed reality’, operating on the borderline between the real and the virtual. Her installations involve large-scale video projections that reshape the architecture of the space and create illusionary effects over objects.
The installations become virtual environments for performance, often inviting audience participation. Over the last 30 years Pignon has produced a large body of work that has exhibited internationally. Parallel to her own practice she has coordinated and curated interdisciplinary art events, festivals, experimental workshops and international art exchange programs. Devoted to artist-run culture she has spent most of her working life in artist-run centers: 15 years at the Fylkingen for New Music & Intermedia Art in Stockholm and 10 years at VIVO Media Arts Center in Vancouver.
