Traci Talasco
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Gowanus

Media:Installation;
Genre:Conceptual;


ARTIST STATEMENT: I create interactive installations that use architecture as a social / political space addressing female identity, balance and imbalance, and unnecessary struggles. Fragmented walls, floors, and interior spaces are stripped of their intended function in humorous and playful ways. Sometimes the work is activated subtly by walking, touch, or smell. Other times the pieces pose physical and emotional challenges such as balancing a floor or climbing an obstacle. When multiple viewers are involved, the work often imposes awkward social interactions between participants. I use ordinary home construction materials and decorative elements, such as plywood, wallpaper, carpeting, and furniture. As part of my working process I make models and drawings for larger scale installations. I also uses writing as a springboard for my ideas, or I start with a material that I am attracted to and work with its inherent associations.
