Jayce Salloum's video work exists within and between the very personal, local and the trans-national. It aligns itself with social and political struggles through 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. As a cultural activist, his work critically engages itself in the perception of social manifestations and political realities. Salloum has lectured worldwide and has exhibited at the widest range of local and international venues possible, from the smallest unnamed storefronts & community centres to institutions such as The Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Gallery of Canada; Kunstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Rotterdam International Film Festival; CaixaForum, Barcelona; 8th Havana Biennial and the 7th Sharjah Biennial. His texts have appeared in many journals such as, Third Text, Documents, Framework, Fuse, Felix, Mix, Public, Pubic Culture, and Semiotext(e). His most recent essay, "sans titre /untitled: the video installation as an active archive" is forthcoming in: Projecting Migration: Transcultural Documentary Practice (Wallflower Press: London, 2007, dist. Columbia Univ. Press), as well as in the Documents of Contemporary Art series title The Archive, Whitechapel Gallery, London. In 2006 his work was featured in the 15th Biennale Of Sydney and in a solo installation at the Museum Villa Stuck, Munich.
