Artist exploring the malleability of reality through sculptural, performative, and audio formats
Andrea Khôrais an artist and researcher based in London. Her practice seeks to comprehend the malleability of reality on personal and societal scales.
Her practice-led PhD research project at Goldsmiths, titled New Sight: The Alchemy of Surveillance into Resistance in Near Future Worlds looks at the history of surveillance, specifically focusing on the mining of occult knowledge systems by the CIA in the cold war as well as the correlation between the 1960s-1970s utopian countercultures and the rise of Surveillance Capitalism.
Through the uncovering of systems and correlations, she is creating a speculative proposition for the future reclamation of personal and community agency through the creation of sculpture, writing, and performance. She has been previously based in Seattle, WA, Seyðisfjörður, Iceland, and Florence, Italy.
