Artist talk: Hale Tenger in conversation with Mari Spirito about the ideas and process of Under
Presented by Alserkal Programming.
This talk addressed the artist’s main concerns, represented here as both physical structure and ephemeral birds, how this audio installation came to be and origins of the fictional narrative at its core. Examples of early work were discussed leading up to the development of this current work, as well as a closer investigation of aspects of human behaviour and systems of control. How have we adapted to the conditions of our time? What are the potential effects of recognizing said systems?
This talk took place on 21 March 2018 as part of Art Week at Alserkal Avenue 2018.
