Abrahams opens with 3 live performances at HTTP Gallery in London

Ruth Catlow has written an essay to accompany the exhibition
Where social networking sites make us think of communication as clean
and transparent, Abrahams creates an Internet of feeling - of agitation,
collusion, ardour and apprehension. This exhibition presents three new
collaborative works alongside documentation of recent networked
performances created and curated by the artist.

About Annie Abrahams
Annie Abrahams was born to a farming family in a rural village in the
Netherlands. She obtained a doctorate in biology in 1978 and found that
her observations of monkeys inspired curiosity about human interactions.
After leaving an academic post, she trained as an artist and moved to
France, where she became interested in using computers to construct and
document her painting installations. She began experimenting with
networked performance and making art for the Internet in the mid 1990s.
Her work has since returned to the questions raised by the monkeys,
concentrating on the possibilities and limitations of communication on
the Internet. She has performed and shown work extensively in France,
including at the Pompidou Centre, Paris, and in many international
galleries including among others Espai d'Art Contemporani de Castello,
Spain; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; and the Armenian Center
for Contemporary Experimental Art, Yerevan; festivals such as the Moscow
Film Festival and the International Film Festival of Rotterdam, and on
online platforms such as Rhizome.org and Turbulence.
