Transcending the Ordinary: Between Rural/Urban and Public/Private
Artist Talk with Anida Yoeu Ali
Anida Yoeu Ali will speak about her process and conceptual frameworks behind some of her most ambitious works created in Cambodia. From the use of religious aesthetics to durational public performances, her works push the performative moment into a public sphere often intervening and juxtaposing next to the private lives of ordinary Cambodians. With particular focus on issues of diasporic identity, Ali’s thematic interest in hybridity, transcendence, and otherness are approaches to mapping new political and spiritual landscapes.
Anida Yoeu Ali’s “Enter” series was recently exhibited at Karin Weber Gallery as part of “Site/Cambodia” in July 2013.
Anida Yoeu Ali is an artist and scholar whose works span performance, installation, video, poetry, public encounters, and political agitation. Utilizing an interdisciplinary approach to artmaking, her installation and performance works investigate the artistic, spiritual and political collisions of a hybrid transnational identity. She is a collaborative partner with Studio Revolt, an independent artist run media lab in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where she currently resides. From the Faroe Islands to the Bronx, Copenhagen to Ho Chi Minh City, she lectures, exhibits and performs internationally. Her pioneering work with the critically acclaimed group “I Was Born With Two Tongues (1998-2003)” is archived with the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Program. Her artistic work has been the recipient of grants from the Rockefeller Foundation, Ford Foundation, and Center for Asian American Media. Her artworks have been exhibited in Chicago, NYC, Phnom Penh, Los Angeles, Siem Reap, Singapore, and most recently in Hong Kong at the Karin Weber Gallery. She earned her B.F.A. from University of Illinois and an M.F.A. from School of the Art Institute Chicago. For further details about her work and process, visit www.studio-revolt.com.
