Jean-Marie Casbarian

Jean-Marie Casbarian was born to an Armenian father and a German mother on a military weapons testing ground in Aberdeen, Maryland.

Through photography, video, text, and performance, Casbarian creates art works and installations that explore the visual narrative, distorting fact with fiction and teasing out the undercurrents of half-truths. Her works include We took the image and put the sound too loud, Hessel Museum of Art, New York (2013); Pictures Are Words-Not-Known, LiShui Museum of Photography, China (2011); and Blind Dates Project, Pratt Manhattan Gallery, New York (2010).
