I had the opportunity to sit with Performa 13 artist, Vishal Jugdeo, who created a new video installation where live and pre-recorded footage from French Guiana and Los Angeles, unfolded simultaneously within a constructed theatrical set and viewing environment.
I asked all of the Performa artists what the best piece of advice they had been given was. Vishal, by far, had the most unique answer. "Becoming an artist is like baking a cake, it doesn't matter how much you turn up the heat, it's not going to make it done any faster."
Watch as I talk to him about his Performa installation, what inspires and motivates him to create, and his thoughts on the art world.
