BIO

Raised in East Asia and a veteran of many cities, Dorsey Dunn is a Los Angeles-based artist. His work in sound, text and image, in the form of installations, performances and written and recorded works, is an extended meditation on the perimeters of language, the movements of silence, and the vagaries of comprehension. Languages, spoken and sounded, in their multiplicities of gesture and meaning, are a primary concern, as are considerations of memory, spatial presence, and will. 2009 solo exhibitions include Q-O2 Gallery in Brussels and Outpost for Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. Dorsey regularly exhibits and performs his sound-led installations and music in the US and internationally. He has received invitations to residencies and festivals around the world, most recently to the new media lab TESLA in Berlin; Jack Straw New Media Gallery in Seattle; Festival International de Arte Digital, Rosario, Argentina; MusicAcoustica in Beijing; and Is Arti in Vilnius and Kaunas, Lithuania. He has scored and produced music for film, theater, and dance, as well as for a variety of multimedia performances. Previously, he edited an international literary magazine, Trafika, based in Prague and New York. He was educated in New York City.
