Common Fantasy, 2020–2021. Site-specific installation in the ADN Guardhouse at the Wende Museum of the Cold War (Los Angeles, California)

Join us for an artist talk with Research for the Bermuda Triangle, the duo-collaborative of Los Angeles-based artists Regina Mamou and Lara Salmon. They will discuss their current project Common Fantasy, a two-part endeavor that exists as an installation inside the Wende’s ADN guardhouse and a scent-by-mail experience. The conversation will be moderated by Joes Segal, the Wende Museum's Chief Curator and Director of Programming.

About Research for the Bermuda Triangle
Regina Mamou and Lara Salmon began collaborating under the name Research for the Bermuda Triangle (RBT) in 2018 in Beirut, Lebanon, at the artist residency Haven for Artists. They have since done interventions in Beirut, Lebanon; Marrakech, Morocco; Berlin, Germany; Havana, Cuba; and Los Angeles, California. Mamou is a research-based installation artist who explores ideologies of current and historical regimes inspired by her Iraqi-Polish background. Salmon is a body-based performance artist and writer who does site-specific projects internationally. As her heritage is German, she travels often to Berlin and was able to source many of the materials for Common Fantasy there.
