Taline Temizian, Armenian-British artist (b. 1978,California- USA) lives and works between Belgium & London.
With practicable, philosophical and conceptual backdrops, her main interest is the Human subject from the scientific point of view specifically that of Cardiology and Neuroscience, MEMORY being at its’ center.
Coding & maths being major influences in the way of perceiving and expressing most complex emotions.
Her work is not defined by any single media use but IDEA being the main decider.
With backgrounds in both traditional fine art as well as digital technology she explores systems and signs through complex processes to develop a new “Language” that cross-sections the interplay between personal language, narrative, anthropology, futurism, transhumanism and cultural history.
With diverse academic background, her research and learning process are continuous.
Her work is featured in solo, collaborations and group shows, curated collective projects including Venice Biennale side projects, London Q Parks & galleries, Berlin, Montreal, Basel, Paris, Yerevan, Zagreb, New York, Oaxaca, Tallinn, Brussels & Beirut.
Her work is held internationally in private and public collections.
Taline Temizian takes a transhumanist perspective on memory and trauma by investigating how neurological activity contributes to lived experience and how artists can change the way we see and better this perception in pursuit of happiness.
Temizian works to depict a “Place of memory” situated between Parallel universes and RL (Real Life), manifesting complex networks comprised of scientific methodologies, conceptual discourse and personal narrative. Employing multiple processes and media, presenting raw yet technically intricate objects and installations that produce bold sensory and emotional experiences. Interrogating the state we are in & deconstructing her post-humanist self to replace it with the transhumanist promise of eternal and idyllic life through science and technology, Temizian applies a poet’s touch to these vocabularies in order to reformat connections and neural pathways between personal history, physical and metaphysical conceptions of humanity.
Based in London, with projects in Brussels, Berlin, Zurich and Paris and more she collaborates with philosophers, scientists, composers, technologists and filmmakers in pursuit of a self-promised “utopia” where “I can regain the lost Time and space.”
“My process is physical, conceptual in many directions including reverse thinking based on a Quantum Time-Lapse, I constantly observe the brain and memory movies triggered by the surrounding or by internal triggers, catch the right elements then construct or deconstruct things or just place them in existing systems, or invent a totally new system that transforms into the artistic output.
