Kerry Tribe

Kerry TribeArtist’s Statement

Most of my work touches on issues of consciousness and language and often memory. I make film and video installations, sound pieces, pictures and recently sculpture, moving between media and formats as the projects dictate. In recent years I’ve been particularly interested in the connection between the physical structures of the brain and the more ephemeral structures of subjectivity. The fact that the human body can house an unfathomably complex and contingent set of experiences never ceases to amaze me.

Carefully researched and produced, my large-scale cinematic projects often combine fictional and documentary approaches, and take shape through formal structures that underscore each work’s subject. I generally try to make work whose material, structural and conceptual bases together suggest that works of art may be capable of mirroring cognitive processes in expansive and generative ways.
