Kelman Duran Return to Artist Artist Statement Artist Statement My primary research goals are at the intersection of architecture and social control specific to populations on borders, specifically Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. I use text, media, and objects/ephemera to create domains related to the concept of states of emergencies. I have been creating work at Pine Ridge since 2012 and this is an ongoing, long-term project. My interest in border towns is in their capacity to give us insight into resistant aesthetic practices. My practice negotiates the way in which one documents people in states of emergencies and how to create an archive of this specific place knowing that translation ultimately destroys the “native information.” In what way can we create archives around subjects whose mode of archiving is oral? How do we navigate the terrain of documenting that is not ethnographic and historicist? To The North is a series and takes many different forms depending on the context. Some iterations are video installations, some are talks, other iterations include a printed book. The video archive uses film and video to document the not so ordinary instances of what it means to live in a state of emergency, a reservation. Subjects range from uranium fracking on the reservation, to the weather, to documenting architecture as social control, to history and myths told through first person narratives. Another resource is the Library of Congress in Washington D.C. and its collection of photographs in South Dakota dealing with Lakota life from the 1880’s until the mid 1890’s, many of which have still not been digitized. The video archive...

COVERS, 2015-2016 ARTIST STATEMENT The primary focus of my artwork is the concept of liberating the archive through the exploration of the creation of critical/cross-cultural histories. By researching, excavating, and appropriating images/text from public and private archives (art/artifact collections, publications, libraries, etc.) I allow for alternative historical and personal voices, counter-narratives and strategies to emerge. My work places emphasis on marginalized individual experiences and personal histories that disturb the established structures and orders of the traditional archive, and challenges singular mainstream knowledge/history. I was born in South Korea and thereafter lived in various countries in Asia, the Middle East and...
