Alicja Gaskon
New York, NY
Neighborhood: East Williamsburg



ARTIST STATEMENT: Alicja Gaskon uses lines and maps to tell stories about conflict, borders migration and identity. In many of Gaskon’s works, mapping becomes a narrative process through which the artist investigates social and political spaces and networks. Her practice is research-based and ranges from painting and installation to video and performance. The works incorporate military maps, satellite images, and statistical data that are later translated into reduced language that is still directly based on the collected information. Gaskon’s work is often reduced to the use of three main colors: red, black and white. The selected infrastructure spaces, buildings and road networks are marked black. The red-and-white lines represent the two-tone universal patterns used for marking boundaries, crowd control barricades and other barriers.
