Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon’s hybrid practice combines work in sound installation, sculpture, and performance with the aim of reconfiguring the traditional hierarchies between audience, performer, and architecture. Her sculptural and sonic systems often reference complex sonic histories embedded into the technological infrastructure of architecture, music, communications technologies and military research. By investigating the networks of institutional and technological power which traverse our embodied perception of sound, she hopes to reveal the myriad ways in which our acoustic experience is subject to control and suggest alternative modes of engagement with the sonic world.

Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon (b. 1982, Long Beach) lives and works in Los Angeles. She received her BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and her MFA from Stanford University. Recent show’s include SFMOMA’s Soundtracks (San Francisco), VAC’s Geometry of Now Festival (Moscow); and solo shows at Human Resources and 356 Mission Rd. (Los Angeles); and Empty Gallery (Hong Kong). Her work is in the collections of SFMOMA, K11 Foundation, Berkeley Art Museum, VAC Foundation and private collections.
