Thérèse Mastroiacovo
From February 23rd 2002 to March 30th 2002
Hello Fellow Artists

Upon the end of five-year art collaboration, Thérèse Mastroiacovo began a body of work entitled The Politics of Recognition that would complicate ideas of shared authorship, collaboration and communication. Applying images of entanglement and using devices like shutter release cables, the work sought to force the limitations of self-expression, ownership, authenticity and ethical practices. It is with this history of work behind her that she began Hello fellow artists, a video series that appropriates, or somehow re-orients, the work of other video artists in a way that acknowledges the source but re-arranges the outcome. Inevitably infringing upon copyright, she experiments with herself as a known entity only to fall short of being recognized as the artist of this work: the original always more identifiable than her own. Forced to collaborate with Mastroiacovo in this first version of her ongoing project include: William Wegman, Dara Birnbaum, Antonio Muntadas, and Douglas Gordon.

Thérèse Mastroiacovo is a visual artist who works in film, video, photography, sculpture and performance. She lives and works in Montréal.
