Iterations #2: I don’t know where this is going
About the artists

Pascale Barret (FR/BE) is a Brussels based visual, sound & performing artist. Since 2003, installations, performances, virtual and interactive creations have been the primary expressions of her solo and collaborative work, in flesh as well as on-line. Pascale uses tangible and virtual, scientific and historical media to address issues of identity. She combines and distorts processes of creation with the consciousness that technology tends to transform our perception of the self and of the others. Starting from the tangible world, Barret enters the Internet as an architect and tackles the slippery issues of gender, animality, artefact, sensuality, agglomerate and abstraction.

Annie Abrahams (NL/FR) is a Dutch artist based in France. In her work, using video, performance as well as the internet, she questions the possibilities and the limits of communication in general and more specifically investigates its modes under networked conditions. She is known worldwide for her net art and collective writing experiments and is an internationally regarded pioneer of networked performance art. Abrahams develops what she calls an aesthetics of trust and attention and creates situations meant to reveal messy and sloppy sides of human behaviour, where she traps reality and somakes that reality available for thought. She has performed and shown work extensively in France and in more than hundred international galleries and museums.
