Within the Artist-in-Residence Program, CCA is delighted to host artist Judith Kakon. Born in 1998 in Basel, Switzerland, she obtained her Bachelor in 2013 in the Bezalel Akadémie für Kunst un Design in Jerusalem and her Master in 2016 in New York. Her mediums are sculpture and installation but also the use of images and text sources. For her the exhibitions are a medium in themselves. She pays close attention to the places she exposes in and works with the contradictory networks of the social laws in which we inhabit. She produces and installs objects that seem to have a purpose but don’t. It confuses our perception of urban objects and projects an absurd image of our society. She often uses found objects and changes their location to make them useless. Judith currently lives and works in Basel and will be staying in Studio Azul during July 2023.
