Lucas Ajemian's practice and activities are built upon strategies of translation, integration and de-articulation of found sources. His employment of disparate media within a single work amplifies the gaps, differences and points of contact between them. Developed through the accumulation of nuanced, at times distracted, decisions, the horizons of Ajemianʼs works are constantly revisited and altered since the potential for doing so is often inscribed within the work. What results is an interpretation and "read" which is unsettling. All the while, challenging constructions of meaning and theme and how these constructs filter down and inform banal quotidian interactions between viewer and work, curator and artist, gallerist and work/artist.
Ajemian has had solo exhibitions at institutions such as Palais de Tokyo in Paris and Artist’s Space in New York. His work has been included in group exhibitions at Aspen Art Museum, Philadelphia’s Institute of Contemporary Art, and MoMA P.S.1 in New York, among others.
