This will be a conversation with three artists who have left their home countries to live and work in Berlin. We will discuss why they came, how they manage life abroad, and whether living in Berlin has influenced their work.
Billie Clarken was born in 1992 in Fairfax, Virginia USA. She now based in Berlin, Germany. She is a multidisciplinary artist whose work directs referential signs and objects in a satirical performance of the immortal image. Often returning to tropes in television culture, Clarken points out the paradoxes of a projected identity in the search for inauthenticity. Their work captures and appropriates use-objects and borrowed memory in combination with exaggerated forms, to install the evolving narrative of the Western consumer.
