PictureThis #5: Micol Hebron and Kio Griffith

Micol Hebron is an interdisciplinary artist, writer and curator based in Los Angeles. She is an associate professor of New Genres at Chapman University in Orange, CA, and is the founder of the Gallery Tally project, the LA Art Girls, and co-founder of the Fontbron Academy (with Robert Fontenot).  She has written and/or edited for X-Tra magazine, Artforum, Arte Contexto, Flash Art, and Art Pulse. Her collaborative project (en)Gendered (in)Equity: The Gallery Tally Poster Project, featuring nearly 300 artist-designed posters that highlight gender inequity in contemporary galleries, was recently on view at ForYourArt on Wilshire, in Los Angeles.   This series of #PictureThis  features questions by Micol answered by five of the artists whose posters are featured in the show. 

This weeks answers come from Kio Griffith is a Los Angeles‑based visual and sound artist, independent curator, and producer. His work includes drawing, painting, sound, video, performance, electronics, language, sculpture and installation. He has exhibited in Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Turkey, Belgium and the U.S.  Griffith's work is based in his research into the visual and sonic possibilities of the mysteries, myths, and materials embedded within modern life. His compositional process mimics the writing of music and is inspired by the sources of everyday matters of consciousness. In this process, interrelated references of time and space are coordinated into the periphery of mass culture. Generating references from hypermedia and their resonating signals, Griffith's “scores” comprise visual and auditory transcriptions.

1. How do you define your sexual identity? 

2. There are so many mysteries in the universe: Why is there no u-turn signal on cars? How do umbilical cords work when a cat or dog is pregnant with a litter?  And, for that matter, to where do our belly buttons lead?  Why do the “Three R”s stand for “Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic”?  What is a mystery that haunts your thoughts?

3. What anxiety dream do you have over and over again?

4. How do you know when you have an idea worth pursuing (as an artwork)?



5. What can we do to destroy the patriarchal, capitalist culture that is making things so hard for women and people of color?



This series is inspired by Hans Ulrich-Obrist and Hans Peter Feldmann: Interview, in which they play with the interview format and Feldmann responds to Obrists’ questions with images. ForYourArt invite artists to pose five questions we invite other artists and you to respond to.
