Karina Iskandarsjah

Karina Iskandarsjah is a visual artist and independent curator from Singapore and Indonesia (based in Toronto, Canada). She is interested in exploring non-dominant histories, cultural hybridity, and the deconstruction of power structures. Because of her own complicated history of migration, Karina’s practice reveals a strong interest in the experience of geographically displaced individuals as well as ideas of inclusion and exclusion in relation to national citizenship.

EXHIBITION: Living Data, Presumed Dead

August 5, 2022 - August 31, 2022

Living Data, Presumed Dead is an electronic theatre and mixed-media installation that examines the abstract space that stores trauma in the human brain. Through the mapping of fragmentation boundaries found in both ecological and computational ecosystems, Ramsey seeks to identify nuanced codes in the micro-traumas — which serve to become conduits toward self-awareness. The clues these patterns offer can help us find healing and a connectedness in our experiences, to both organic and inorganic systems.
