Artist Interview: Anita Dube


Flash must be enabled to see the video player.

Initially trained as an art historian and critic, Anita Dube creates works with a conceptual language that valorizes the sculptural fragment as a bearer of personal and social memory, history, mythology, and phenomenological experience. Employing a variety of found objects drawn from the realms of the industrial (foam, plastic, wire), craft (thread, beads, velvet), the body (dentures, bone), and the readymade (ceramic eyes), Dube investigates a very human concern with both personal and societal loss and regeneration.

Dube was featured in the Walker Art Center’s exhibition How Latitudes Become Forms: Art in a Global Age. For more information about the artist and her work, visit http://latitudes.walkerart.org/artists/index.wac?id=142.
