Sharon Hayes’ video works, installations and performances examine the influence of history, politics and space on the collective as well as the individual formation of the subject. For this purpose, she has developed conceptual and methodological approaches which she evolves from artistic and academic contexts such as theatre, anthropology, linguistics or journalism. Her works have been shown, among others, in the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen (2007), the Centre Culturel Suisse, Paris (2007), in the Generali Foundation, Vienna (2007), in the Tate Modern, London (2007), in The Moore Space, Miami (2005), at the Biennial Vrsac (2004) and in P.S.1 MoMA, Long Island (2000).
