Ken Okiishi
American, b. 1978
Follow

Working primarily in video, Ken Okiishi has explored subjects such as the psychogeography of New York and Berlin, memory formation, and global data streams. In (Goodbye to) Manhattan (2010), Okiishi’s reimagining of Woody Allen’s Manhattan, he explores the fantastical perception in New York of Berlin as a utopian center of art production. “This is, on the one hand, an autobiographical reality (I've been going back and forth between Berlin and New York for the last nine or so years); it is also an often fraught channel of cultural exchange,” he has said. In The Very Quick of the Word (2013), Okiishi examines human memory by way of gestural paintings and unstable video recordings played on VHS tapes. He has frequently collaborated with his partner, the artist Nick Mauss.
