12th July – 27th July, 2018
Selfies taken in studios transform through the technology designed for quite a different purpose – for measuring distances. I started this work by wanting to represent myself as artist in situ – my studio. I used a mode of photographic representation that I have become obsessed with that defies formal categories – conflating sculpture, photography and 2D representational forms. Dancing between intent and the uncontrolled, the work glitches and codes errors, excavating unexpected truths. My selfie studio unexpectedly became an apocalyptic space due to the alchemy of algorithm. Blackholes, parts of reality tear and peel, my body destroyed. A world pieced together of surfaces, ultimately hollow.
