Dana Dal Bo



Concordia University

DANA DAL BO is a multi-disciplinary artist that works in and between photo, video, performance and the net.  She is unsettling how the construction of identity and self are influenced by popular culture, social media, and medicine. Her interests span surveillance practices, reality television, re-enactments, D.N.A., and the super-natural.  She looks back at the history of science, medicine and psychology and disrupts the empire of the empirical as the only measure for determining the healthy from the aberrant. Her work follows voyeurism, exhibitionism, narcissism, and hysteria into contemporary phenomena like selfies and drones.

Dal Bo has an extensive exhibition history including a recent collaboration with Joe Davis at Ars Electronica : Radical Atoms and the Alchemists of Our Time in Linz, Austria (2016), and Onufri XXI at the National Gallery of Tirana, Albania (2015).  She has been an exhibiting artist and lecturer at the International Symposium for Electronic Art- ISEA in Kowloon, Hong Kong (2016) and Vancouver, Canada (2015). She was also commissioned by the International Motion Festival of Cyprus to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland.
