Sabisha Friedberg’s composition, performance and installation work draws upon a chimeric arcane, exploring perceptual delineation of space through sound, sculpture, and low-end experiential thresholds. She has performed and exhibited internationally, and received commissions through residencies at institutions including ISSUE Project Room, EMPAC (Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center, RPI), and the Clocktower Gallery (now Clocktower Productions). She has had solo shows at the Swiss Institute, Audio Visual Arts, and EMPAC. In 2015, she released a double LP entitled The Hant Variance on the label Distributed Objects, and was included in the MoMA PS1 LP There Will Never Be Silence. Friedberg received her MFA from Bard College, and her BA in Fine Arts, with an emphasis on sound and installation, from the New Genres Department at the San Francisco Art Institute. There she studied experimental film with Ernie Gehr and recording and electro-acoustic/tape music composition with Don Llloyd, Paul de Marinas and Chris Brown of Mills College of Contemporary Music. Friedberg was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and resides in Paris.
