> About Annie Abrahams
> Annie Abrahams was born to a farming family in a rural village in the
> Netherlands. She obtained a doctorate in biology in 1978 and found that
> her observations of monkeys inspired curiosity about human interactions.
> After leaving an academic post, she trained as an artist and moved to
> France, where she became interested in using computers to construct and
> document her painting installations. She began experimenting with
> networked performance and making art for the Internet in the mid 1990s.
> Her work has since returned to the questions raised by the monkeys,
> concentrating on the possibilities and limitations of communication on
> the Internet. She has performed and shown work extensively in France,
> including at the Pompidou Centre, Paris, and in many international
> galleries including among others Espai d'Art Contemporani de Castello,
> Spain; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; and the Armenian Center
> for Contemporary Experimental Art, Yerevan; festivals such as the Moscow
> Film Festival and the International Film Festival of Rotterdam, and on
> online platforms such as Rhizome.org and Turbulence.
