Daniel Bejar
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bedford-Stuyvesant



ARTIST STATEMENT: My work considers and critiques the representation of history, place, and the self within the structures of power encompassing our physical and digital worlds. Through forms of performance and intervention, I insert myself and my work into public sites and systems such as Googles search engines, Google Maps, protest rallies at Republican National conventions, and a no-fly zone over the Super Bowl in New Jersey to construct new narratives in the public realm. In doing so, my work unearths a space where the public is challenged to question the familiar, and envision alternative realities and histories.  Working project to project, my performance-based, interventionist practice manifests in different forms including documentation, photography, video, text, installation, sculpture, and web-based media.
