Gabi Dao


Gabi Dao is an artist and organizer based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, and on the traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Skwxwú7mesh, and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ Nations (Vancouver, Canada). Her practice insists on counter-memory, intimacy, multiple truths, messiness, entanglement, sensorial affirmations, and blurred temporalities, which often become sculpture, installation, moving image, and sound. Beginning with “patchwork” conceptions of time and materiality, she is interested in tracing histories of the everyday through themes of globalization, consumption, belief, and belonging.  Dao is a co-organizer at Duplex, a DIY project space and studio collective in Vancouver.
