Trisha Baga

Country: USA

Trisha Baga is a New York-City based, Filipino-American artist who works in Stereoscopic 3D video installation, clay, consumer grade electronics, and community performance. Compelled by an interest in what they call “the stuff that fills the gaps,” they recombine objects and images into scenarios that address issues related to the environment, technology, and identity. For Baga, working in a variety of media is an optimistic metaphor for the power of diversity writ large, as they strive to unearth emotional histories and critically engage with contemporary image culture.

Trisha Baga (b. 1985, Venice, FL) lives and works in New York. Baga’s installation Mollusca and the Pelvic Floor is currently on view at the Gesellschaft für Moderne Kunst am Museum Ludwig Köln. Their work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Pirelli HangarBicocca, Milan; Fridericianum, Kassel; TPW, Toronto; CCC, Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, Harvard University, Cambridge; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. They have also participated in group exhibitions at Asian Film Archive, Singapore; CAC Cincinnati; Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco; Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna; LACMA, Los Angeles; PS1, New York; Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneva; European Biennial of Contemporary Art, Zurich; and Julia Stoschek Collection at ZKM, Düsseldorf.
