Acme Studios — FRAUD

Supporting Artists since 1972


FRAUD is a métis duo of artist-researchers (Audrey Samson & Francisco Gallardo). Their backgrounds include computational and software culture, environmental history, postcolonial feminism, cultural studies, disruptive design, performance and space systems engineering. The duo develops forms of art-led inquiry into modes of government and power that flow through physical and cultural spaces. They focus on exploring forms of necropolitics that are embedded in the entanglement of ecology and technical objects, and erasure as a disruptive technology in knowledge production. Audrey is currently a lecturer in Critical Studies in the Art Department at Goldsmiths College, University of London.

FRAUD has presented work at such institutions as: the Salon Suisse (the 57th Venice Biennale) (IT); the Whitechapel Gallery (UK); the Rotterdam Architecture Biennale (NL); Kunsthal Aarhus (DK); Haus der Kulturen der Welt (DE); Kunsthall Trondheim (NO); le Bâtiment d’art Contemporain (CH); the ArtScience Museum (SG); and CentroCentro (SP).
