Zainab Aliyu 扎伊納布.阿利尤
Artist and cultural worker 藝術家及文化工作者 @New York 紐約
Zainab Aliyu (‘Zai’) is an artist and cultural worker living in Occupied Lenapehoking (Brooklyn, New York, USA). Her work is about the material affect of the ‘immaterial’. She contextualises the cybernetic and temporal entanglement embedded within societal dynamics to understand how all socio-technological systems of control are interconnected, and how we are all implicated through time. She often dreams, experiments and inquires through built virtual environments, printed matter, video, archives, writing, installation and community-participatory unlearning. 扎伊納布.阿利尤(「扎」)是一位居於萊納佩人領地(美國紐約布魯克林)的藝術家及文化工作者。她的作品主要討論「非物質」的物質影響。她為社會動力學中的模控學和時間糾纏作語境分析以了解所有社會技術系統如何互相聯繫以及我們如何透過時間相互牽連。她經常做夢、進行實驗,並透過內建虛擬環境、印刷品、影片、存檔紀錄、寫作、裝置及社區參與式的學習(及捨棄學習)以叩問。
