Artist Statement

Thomas Knoll (°1980, Stephenville, TX, United States) makes conceptual artworks and performances. By demonstrating the omnipresent lingering of a ‘corporate world’, his conceptual artworks references post-colonial theory as well as the avant-garde or the post-modern and the left-wing democratic movement as a form of resistance against the logic of the capitalist market system.

His conceptual artworks demonstrate how life extends beyond its own subjective limits and often tells a story about the effects of global cultural interaction over the latter half of the twentieth century. It challenges the binaries we continually reconstruct between Self and Other, between our own ‘cannibal’ and ‘civilized’ selves. Thomas Knoll currently lives and works in Las Vegas.
