Peres Projects at Art Berlin Contemporary


For ABC, Peres Projects presents a video installation by Corsica-born artist Agathe Snow. “CHINATOWN: Every Square Has its Round” is a video works that chronicles Agathe’s drive through the various Chinatowns of the US, stopping to savor the “local” cuisine, buying fireworks and engaging in, basically, all things Chinatown ˆ an irreverant comment on national identity and the genre of picaresque fiction in true Agathe Snow fashion.

Agathe SNOW’s work varies from found object sculptures to dinner party performances. For the Whitney Biennial’s event program at the Park Avenue Armory, from March 9th to March 16th Snow staged Stamina 2008, a dance marathon in the ex-military headquarters. Snow invited the world to register online (Steadfast Associates maintained the website for the duration: Stamina2008.com), arrive to the Armor, punch time cards, and dance for free to music provided by over 30 DJs.

Snow’s work has also been featured in solo exhibitions at James Fuentes LLC (New York) and Jonathan Vyner/Fortescue Avenue (London). Select group exhibitions include the 2008 Whitney Biennial (New York, NY), and “Pretty Ugly” at Maccarone. The artists’s work will be featured in an upcoming solo exhibitoin at the Jeu de Paume in Paris, France.
