Jennifer Steinkamp: United States Presentation, 11th International Cairo Biennale
MAK-Center for Art and Architecture, Oct 31, 2009 - Art - 103 pages
Los Angeles-based new media artist Jennifer Steinkamp's installation, "Dervish," anchored the United States presentation at the 11th International Cairo Biennale in 2008. Steinkamp is known for virtually transforming architectural space through her immersive video works, in a manner that tests viewers' sense of perception, combining political and cultural elements with state-of-the-art technologies to create a sophisticated illusionism. This volume is designed to read from right to left, in accordance with Arabic conventions. It features the photographic series, Dervish Cairo, published here for the first time, as well as a newly-commissioned essay by art historian Nizan Shaked and U. S. commissioner Kimberli Meyer laying out a new theoretical basis for the artist's multifaceted practice.
