Jeremiah Day (1974, USA) is re-examining political conflicts and resistances through unfolding their subjective traces and contexts through photography, speech and body language taking shape in performances, video and installation.
Through a hybrid and idionsyncratic form of realism, Day draws upon non-fictional incident to serve as metaphor and exemplification that can shed insight upon broader philosophical and political questions. Day graduated from the art department of the University of California at Los Angeles in 1997 and lived and worked in Los Angeles until moving to Europe in 2003 for the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam.
His work has been presented at such institutions the Centre George Pompidou in Paris, the Liverpool and Shanghai Biennial’s, Artist’s Space in New York and the Santa Monica Museum of Art.
Day is presently pursuing a Doctorate in Arts with Vrije University Amsterdam and MaHKU titled “A Kind of Imagination that has Nothing to Do with Fiction” which explores the work of Hannah Arendt as a background for cultural practice.
