Interview with Kisito Assangni:
Tell us about your work. How did you hit your works issue?
My aim is to create a simple visual definition of the moment through video, photography and drawing. With all the instruments that technology provides, I just want to be an analyst of its processes and exegete of ideological constructions.
Why do prefer video as your favourite art media?
Today video art as social visual structure has become more available to the audience and the new technologies have interfered in the lives of all the peoples.
How do you get to your main issues?
I collect ideas from my personal anxiety, conversations, songs, newspapers, books and films to re-contextualise the contemporary significance.
