We’re exhibiting our latest work Emily’s Video for the first time in London!
Opening: April 22, 6:30-8:30 pm (through May 11)
From Susan Sontag, Regarding the Pain of Others: “It seems that the appetite for pictures showing bodies in pain is as keen, almost, as the desire for ones that shows bodies naked. For many centuries, in Christian art, depictions of hell offered both of these elemental satisfactions. […] There was also the repertoire of hard-to-look-at cruelties from classical antiquity – the pagan myths, even more than the Christian stories, offer something for every taste. No moral charge attaches to the representation of these cruelties. Just the provocation: can you look at this? There is the satisfaction of being able to look at the image without flinching. There is the pleasure of flinching”.
btw, the same night opens the group show we’re curating there, Brand Innovations for Ubiquitous Authorship.
