Richard Goulis is a multimedia/performative artist working primarily with video installation and found objects. Goulis integrates and oftentimes juxtaposes video and projections as a means of deconstructing a subject. In his genre he seeks to re-purpose an object, thereby creating a recontextualized experience for the viewer, such as a TV remote control that is turned into a wax deity.
The Dadaists of the last century provide a framework for him, but Goulis is a contemporary provocateur with his own voice, deriving inspiration from engaging everything in his environment.
Goulis is a multidisciplinary artist with a background in television production. A graduate of the Film/Video Department at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), he founded the Worcester Artist Group in Massachusetts and the Harwood Art Center in New Mexico, and he has performed around the world with Big Nazo Puppets. His documentary and installation video work has been seen at many shows and festivals and is part of the permanent collection of the RISD Museum of Art. He is also the manager of the video document series NetWorks.
This exhibition is curated by James Montford.
