[ISEA2015] Artist Statement: Nicolas Sassoon — Visual Accompaniment

Artist Statement

Marseille, France / Vancouver, Canada.

The work of Nicolas Sassoon makes use of various computer-based processes to generate fantasized visions of architectures, landscapes and domestic environments. While most of his work is published online as animated GIFs, Sassoon also materializes his web-based practice into sculptures, prints, textiles, and site-specific installations, as well as collaborations with other artists, architects, music producers and fashion designers. Sassoon’s work often explores the contemplative and projective dimensions of the digital, as well as the manner in which virtual space can (or cannot) be inscribed within the physical realm.

  • Nicolas Sassoon has shown in international venues and events such as the New Museum (US), 319 Scholes (US), Eyebeam (US), May Gallery & Residency (US), Contemporary Art Gallery (CA), Charles H.Scott Gallery (CA), Western Front (CA), PRETEEN Gallery (MX), the Centre d’Art Bastille (FR), Arti et Amicitiae (NL), MU Eindhoven (NL) , Victoria & Albert Museum (UK), Today Art Museum (CN), the Berlin Fashion Week (DE)) and the New-York Fashion Week (US). Nicolas is a member of the online collective Computers Club and a founder of the collective W-A-L-L-P-A-P-E-R-S.
