Bio

A collaborative practice between Taslima Ahmed and Manuel Gnam, FLAME consumes information and filters, rates, rearranges and reproduces the contents in order to feed them into the gallery circuit. FLAME acts in lieu of a variety of cultural forces such as the invisible hand of the art market, the collective voice of the internet or a data-based will of the people. FLAME's works consist of stacks, buttons and symbols, but also animations, performances and installations; often refering to novel technologies that feed bodily impulses and desires.
