Chloe Feinberg (b. 1979), is an English/American new media artist living and working in London. Feinberg works across drawing, animation and digital media and is currently building CGI worlds and using game engines to produce her own fantasy images. Her work is a psychic excavation that seeks to become more and more fluid; full immersion in another’s dream. Within virtual realms, she explores notions of mental real estate, reconfiguring gaze, and the possibilities for creating autonomous spaces where unconscious desires can play out.
Chloe has a BA in fine art from Central St Martins and an MA in animation from the Royal College of Art in London. Most recently her work has appeared at the Tate Modern, Tate Britain, Art Night and Space, London. Her drawings have been published by Nieves books and Innen zines in Zurich; her zine Hermetica was a top pick of Printed Matter’s New York Art Book Fair at Moma PS1 in 2018. Both Hermetica and her book Infinite Recognition have been stocked in Art bookshops world-wide. Her film Love Soldiers screened at several festivals and premiered online on Mubi in 2015.
Illuminatura, an alchemical term for illumination in darkness, is a prototype for a larger body of CGI film and VR work currently in production. A collection of embodied images and experiences that seek to plumb the detritus of late stage capitalism to connect with other deeper flows.
