LaTurbo Avedon | avatar artist and curator

LaTurbo Avedon is an avatar and artist originating in virtual space. Their work emphasizes the practice of nonphysical identity and authorship. Many of the works can be described as research into dimensions, deconstructions, and the explosion of forms, exploring topics of virtual authorship and the physicality of the Internet.

LaTurbo’s process of character creation continues through gaming, performance and exhibitions. Their work has appeared internationally, including TRANSFER Gallery (New York), Transmediale (Berlin), Haus der elektronischen Künste (Basel), The Whitney Museum (New York), HMVK (Dortmund), Barbican Center (London), and Galeries Lafayette (Paris).

Myriam Bleau + LaTurbo Avedon – Eternity Be Kind
Myriam Bleau’s hybrid electronic practice integrates steady beats and half-recognizable melodies into abstract, electroacoustic atmospheres. Her creations—including her recent collaboration with virtual artist LaTurbo Avedon—investigate the spaces between objects, performers and our expectations of them as we watch their gestures and audiovisual expressions shift and flow.
