    Ken Okiishi takes up and troubles the vocabulary of the media that he uses. His works hover over and within the relationships between matter and memory, perception and action of a digitally networked culture. Using video, performance, and installation he creates moments when language and images begin to fall apart. As Okiishi subverts the material claims of the media, the glitches that occur illuminate spaces for the production of something other than what has already been.
    Ken Okiishi lives and works in New York and Berlin. Recent solo exhibitions include: Solar/Data/Matter: Sobreteixims i escultures, 1972, 1968, 2016, 1978, Fundació Gaspar, Barcelona (2016); Porous Feedback, Arbeiterkammer Wien, Vienna (2015); Gestures, data, feedback, Take Ninagawa, Tokyo (2015); Screen Presence, Museum Ludwig, Cologne; Reena Spaulings, New York (2014); gesture/data, Pilar Corrias, London; (List Projects) Ken Okiishi, MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge, Massachusetts (2013); The Very Quick of the Word, Hessel Museum of Art, Bard Center for Curatorial Studies (2013); Gino/Marcel Duchamp on Streeteast.com, Mathew, Berlin (2012); (Goodbye to), Take Ninagawa, Tokyo (2012); (Goodbye to) Manhattan, Alex Zachary, New York (2010); and (Goodbye to) Manhattan, Mehringdamm 72, Berlin (2010).
