Trisha Baga is an artist whose work blurs the line between video and performance. Interested in the inherent qualities and meanings of ordinary objects and occurrences, Baga uses performance to open up a phenomenological space for facing the 'common things' that surround us."
For her performance at KÖNIG GALERIE "Baga placed her video works - along with photos, raw footage, performance elements and super-8 home movies shot by her parents - in screensaver software that randomly selected clips to be screened. Interested in the screensaver as a device for creating narrative and generating the appearance of order, Baga allowed the software to curate her presentation. Taking her cues from the projected images, she responded through performance."(Josh Kline, Curator EAI, New York)
