AFIELD Communication Manager
France · Visual Arts
Abi implements communication and community building strategies for the Afield network.
As an artist Abi’s conceptual practice confronts issues of power, privilege, vulnerability, and social expectation through performance art. In 2017, with the support of the Cité Internationale des Arts, he designed the role-playing performance Middle-Man to bring works by French artists Virgile Fraisse, (La) Horde, and Jean Hubert to the first Karachi Biennale. In 2018 he represented France in the Erasmus+ program Culture Backstage and since 2014 has collaborated closely with Australian artist Honi Ryan’s international performance project, the Silent Dinners. Abi has an MFA from Transart Institute (Berlin/NY) and a BFA from L’École Parsons in Paris (now Paris College of Art).
