“What could it mean to forget who we are?”

Allana Clarke, (b.1987. Trinidad & Tobago) is a conceptual artist working in video, sculpture, installation, and performance. She has completed residencies at the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, The Vermont Studio Center, and Lighthouse Works. Clarke is also the 2014 recipient of the Toby Devan Lewis Fellowship MICA, Skowhegan fellowship, Vermont Studio Civil Society Fellowship, the Peter W. Brooke Fellowship and a 2015 recipient of a Franklin Furnace grant. She completed her MFA in the Mount Royal School of Art at MICA. Recent exhibitions include work performed at FiveMyles Gallery, Invisible Exports Gallery, and Gibney Dance in New York. Her current practice uses performance and language to dissect the anxiety caused by our perception of spatial compression through the fracturing of how we understand time and speed and the binary of individual and collective consciousness via the performance of cultural signifiers.
