Jayce Salloum’s video work exists within and between the very personal, quotidian, local and the trans-national. It engages in an intimate subjectivity and discursive challenge. He has worked in installation, photography, drawing, performance, text and video since 1975, as well as curating exhibitions, conducting workshops and coordinating cultural projects. His work critically asserts itself in the perception of social manifestations and political realities. Salloum has lectured pervasively and has exhibited at the widest range of local and international venues possible, from the smallest unnamed storefronts and community centres in his downtown eastside Vancouver neighbourhood to institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York. His texts have appeared in many books and journals such as, Third Text, Documents, Framework, Fuse, Felix, Mix, Public, Pubic Culture, Rouge.com.au, Semiotext(e), Projecting Migration: Transcultural Documentary Practice, and The Archive. Most recently his texts were published in Damp: Contemporary Vancouver Media Art (Anvil Press, Vancouver, 2008) and Practical Dreamers: Conversations with Movie Artists, (Coach House Press, Toronto, 2008). Salloum is presently preparing two new monographs, one for the Govett-Brewster Gallery, New Zealand and the other for his solo survey touring exhibition with the Kamloops Art Gallery.
