Dana Kaoukji is a multidisciplinary artist/curator from no specific country.
Fascinated by Water as an art medium, its different function, its technique as a very dynamic, changing character, and pure and transparent element. Dana’s challenge is to create water between the artists/artworks, the audience, and the art institutes, to smoothly mix these three main elements of an exhibition in one room.
Having a non-art-related background as she grew up, then becoming an artist followed by being a curator in a museum and then working in a pure art market one, grew a deeper understanding in her of the challenge to manage and find the sincere fine line to link the reality we live in with the dreamy and utopian aura of curating an exhibition.
Through her curatorial practice, The global citizen artist focuses on the marginalized artists who didn’t get the appreciation and the opportunities they deserve, trying to find them and open up the doors for them.
