Andrea Sisson is interested in the mechanism, the behavioral, and analeptic means. The culmination of her monthlong residency, Sisson activates PAM through her narrative approach to art and media with the continuation of her participatory performance piece Hx-family-memory-predatory-lg.
Andrea Sisson (b. 1987 Cincinnati, Ohio) is a multidisciplinary artist living in Los Angeles. She is a 2010 J. William Fulbright Fellow and is currently an MFA candidate at Bard College, Milton Avery School of the Arts. Her work spans performance and participation, imagery, text, installation, sound, and object. Her recent work has examined material and consumption by intervening with perceived systems of value, using an assortment of materials—found, collected, and made—and mediums to create portraits more so than critique. In a clash of class with a temporary and provisional atmosphere, her work often has a kind of staged formalism, and on the other hand a sentimental questioning of home. She is interested in the behavioral, cognition, and perception, and through that, new narrative approaches to art and media. Sisson has been a visiting artist at Rhode Island School of Design and the Maryland Institute College of Art and her work has been shown at São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound, the Contemporary Art Center, and broadcasted on SFE ART TV to the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and European public television stations.
