Imminent Disaster //

Artistic Statement

Imminent Disaster began putting work on the streets in 2006. Her artistic practice also includes sculpture, printmaking, photography and writing.

As a whole, Disaster is driven by the urge to achieve fluidity between aesthetic practice and life. Her often site-specific work adapts to changing environments inspired by remote travel and adventure. She has rafted the Mississippi River with the Miss Rockaway Armada; crossed the Adriatic Sea on a junk boat to attend the 2009 Venice Biennale; designed and built the sets for Jeff Stark’s renowned “Sweet Cheat” performance sited in an abandoned warehouse; and designed two murals with the Philadelphia Mural Arts program. Her work has been exhibited throughout the US and internationally at the Van Abbemuseum (Netherlands), Addict Galerie (Paris) and Urban Angel Gallery (London). In 2011 she built floating sculptures on the Schuylkill River as part of a grant awarded by the Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative, designed and built a house in Ghana, and was featured on NPR for her project “Homeland” which led her across 15,000 miles of the United States taking wet-plate collodion portraits. Her work has also appeared in The New York Times, New York Magazine, Juxtapoz, The Wall Street Journal and The Village Voice.
