Daniel Shanken

Daniel Shanken’s practice works through systems of influence, bound within programmed flows of language and stimuli, maneuvering different mediums and materials.

Daniel Shanken’s research engages the substrates of information systems that circulate through perceptual, biological, and physical outputs. His practice aims to render these in a way that distorts the definitions found within unconscious structures of the human brain, uncovering their biases and skeletal remains.

Daniel is an artist from Los Angeles, living and working in London. Currently, he is undertaking a PhD at the Contemporary Art Research Centre at Kingston University. His work has recently been shown at Art Basel Hong Kong, Yvonne Lambert Gallery, Whitechapel Gallery, CCA Glasgow, Nottingham Contemporary, CFCCA Manchester, Kiasma Helsinki, and CGP London.
