YEMENWED

• EPISODE 3
• NO IMAGE, COMMERCIAL BREAKS
• WOMAN MERGES W CAR, NO. 3

Yemenwed was founded in 2006 in New York City,
and has participated in exhibitions and performances at
MOMA P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, Portland Institute for
Contemporary Art TBA:10, Performa 09, Fake Estate Gallery, 179 Canal, Hessel Museum
of Art, Asia Song Society, and Jack Hanley Gallery, among other venues.

Yemenwedʼs work often explores a detached reality;
a hyper re-clarification of the present moment, which frequently results in the visual shifting
of peripheral experiences to the foreground. Casual back-up dancing, mundane
movement, and domestic abstractions are often employed to this end, as they are
theatrically rearranged to be viewed as central, and with increased detail.
The group maintains an active interest in the vocabulary of mainstream popular culture,
and its conventions, as well as entertainment value, and notions of beauty.
Each piece invariably reflects the different personal aesthetic interests
of the individual artists forming the work.
