Opening Reception | Aleksandra Domanović: Mother of This Domain
September 26, 2015 – 8pm to September 27, 2015 – 1am
Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art is delighted to present the opening reception of Aleksandra Domanović: Mother of This Domain, the artist’s ﬁrst solo exhibition in North America. The event will take place on Saturday, September 26th at 8PM and all are welcome.
Aleksandra Domanović has garnered international acclaim for her highly researched works on the history of media and technology speciﬁcally relating to the role of women. Aleksandra Domanović Mother of This Domain marks her ﬁrst solo exhibition in North America and will bring together a body of work that spans her practice, including her ongoing paper stacks and her serial work The Belgrade Hand as well the video From Yu to Me and the installation Things to Come.
Aleksandra Domanović (born 1981 in Novi Sad, former Yugoslavia) lives and works in Berlin. She has produced a body of deeply innovative works that mine popular culture and politics in her investigations into how existing images and information circulate. Conditioned by the terms and aesthetics of digital media, Domanović’s work often utilizes the web as a tool, medium, and organizing principle. She was awarded the 2014/15 ars viva prize, an exhibition series that has included the Hamburger Kunsthalle, Hamburg; Bonner Kunstverein, Bonn, Germany; and Grazer Kunstverein, Graz, Austria. Her recent solo and group exhibitions include Glasgow International (2014); The Future Was at Her Fingertips, Tanya Leighton Berlin (2013);Meanwhile, Suddenly and Then, 12th Biennale de Lyon (2013); Inﬁnite Inclusion, Jessica Silverman Gallery, San Francisco; A Different Kind of Order, ICP Triennial, New York (2013);Turbo Sculpture, Space, London (2012); Higher Atlas, Marrakech Biennale 4th Edition (2012) and From yu to me, Kunsthalle Basel (2012). Her forthcoming exhibitions include the Whitechapel Gallery, London; Aleksandra Domanović: Identity Crisis, High Line Art, New York; and Them, Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin. In 2006, she co- founded the collaborative blog VVORK (www.vvork.com), a rolling archive of posted artworks that functioned as a public sketchbook and gathered over 5000 posts before its end in 2012.
