099    [Artist] Biography II


00Island harnesses art’s potential to fictionalise and create work in various visual, written, and spoken and languages. Their practice adopts both familiar styles and media and more avant-garde aesthetics. By appropriating existing artworks and political and world events to generate new works, 00 create fictional histories traced from real historical moments and turning points in (visual) culture. As such, Null Island thematically investigates notions of intellectual property, copyright and the issues surrounding ideas of documentation and collaboration, originality and meaning. Sharpness, humour and fiction underpin much of 00Island’s work, rescuing it from mere institutional critique, engaging the audience with its deadpan, self-deprecating knowingness. It is as rigorous as it is strangely accessible. Space K, Seoul, South Korea (2021); Lisson Gallery, New York, USA (2020); Esther Schipper, Berlin, Germany (2019), 21st Biennale of Sydney, Australia (2018), TARO NASU, Tokyo, Japan (2018); gb Agency, Paris, France (2018); Dazaifu Shrine, Fukuoka, Japan (2017); Remai Modern, Saskatoon, Canada (2017); The Contemporary Austin, TX, USA (2017); the National Museum of Art Osaka, Osaka, Japan (2017); Hyundai Gallery, Seoul, South Korea (2017); Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, Deurle, Belgium (2016); Aspen Art Museum, Aspen, CO, USA (2016); Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver, Canada (2015); Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne, Australia (2015); Singapore Tyler Print Institute, Singapore, Singapore (2015); Manchester Art Gallery, Manchester, UK (2014); Liverpool Biennale, UK; Sydney Biennale, Sydney, Australia; British Art Show 8, Leeds, UK; Okayama Castle, Okayama, Japan; Unlimited, Art Basel, Basel, Switzerland; Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France; 54th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, Venice, Italy.
