For the second month in a row, an Annka Kultys Gallery exhibition has been selected as one of Hackney Citizen’s top East End Exhibitions. Making an interesting connection between the current show, Dominic Dispirito’s In the Garden, Council Housed and Violent, and the previous show, Molly Soda’s Me and My Gurls, the author Andrew Barnes writes: “Annka Kultys Gallery is hosting another digital artist whose work would be literally unimaginable mere decades ago. Where Soda utilised her internet presence to bring viewers inside her personal Panopticon, Dominic Dispirito is concerned with how others are viewed and vilified, namely the British ‘chav.’” In the Garden, Council Housed and Violent will remain on view through 28 July.

Marie Munk has been interviewed by Interalia Magazine about her practice, her Magic Wand performance at Code Art Fair and her dual-exhibition with Stine Deja, Synthetic Seduction, originally shown at Annka Kultys Gallery. Discussing the dissolving boundaries between the body and the mind in contemporary digital society, Munk says: “Our body holds our mind, which constantly pushes the boundaries of the body and explores new territories for the extension of the body’s identity. This tension has only been reinforced in the virtual world where our minds can go wandering, without the flabby gravity of the body to hold it back. With the digital universe we enter a post-human approach to the human, which challenges our carnality. The body has become liquid and editable, dissolved into carefully selected and vehemently retouched fragments.” Synthetic Seduction is currently on view at SixtyEight Art Institute in Copenhagen until 4 August. You can find the full interview here.

French publication ArtPress has just posted a fantastic review of Molly Soda’s ‘Me and My Gurls,’ written by art critic and professor of Neo-Literature Magali Nachtergael. In the piece, Nachtergael writes on Soda’s mastery of the digital medium and her ability to effortlessly move between different platforms, going so far as to compare her practice to a ‘ready-made autobiographique’ following the tradition of feminist artists like Gina Pane and Sophie Calle.

Alice Bucknell has written a profile of Stine Deja for Issue No. 28 of Cura Magazine. Discussing the artist’s dual-show with Marie Munk, Synthetic Seduction at Annka Kultys Gallery, Bucknell writes: “Synthetic Seduction asked if the apparent benefits of a low-stakes and immediate intimacy—whether in the form of face-scan emojis or late-night drunken Tinder binges—are actually less valuable than they seem, in fact asking from us a larger sacrifice than we might realize. Rather than conferring an obvious approval or disapproval rating on the matter, the duo’s response was far more ambiguous, subjective, and very nearly sentient.” For more information about this issue and to read the full article, click here.

Describing the titular work of the show, Soda says: “as you watch me dance, you’re seeing more and more dancing girls join me on screen, and as the video continues, I become the avatar—I become one of them. There’s an element of blending in—the anonymity of everyone doing the same thing online. It’s simultaneously very beautiful, that we’re all sharing these experiences and doing this stuff, but also very isolating and lonely.” You can find the full article here.

London-based blog Just Opened London has written a review of Molly Soda’s solo show Me and My Gurls, on view at AKG through 16 June. They write, “Themes of vulnerability, narcissism and over-sharing run throughout and the exhibition is as likely to make you feel uncomfortable as it is to entertain.

Artist and blogger Katy Howe has written a review of Molly Soda’s solo exhibition Me and My Gurls, on view through 16 June at AKG. She writes: “Although some may perceive her work as shallow or superficial, if you take the time to look deeper, and I mean longer than a three second insta-gratification, you will find an intricately complex and engaged artistic practise, powerfully addressing structures of identity, especially female identity. She successfully explores the notion of authenticity in the interactions of our online selves, by looking at how social media, instant messaging and constant sharing invade our lives and in turn affect our interactions, highlighting and blurring boundaries between the personal and the public. She forces us to consider what it means to have a private life if we are sharing everything.” To read the full review, click here.
London art critic Paul Carey-Kent has just reviewed Me and my gurls, Molly Soda’s third solo show at AKG. He writes, “Molly Soda’s teeming and multifarious practice is most naturally online.

Time Out London will include a review of Molly Soda’s new solo show Me and my gurls in its upcoming print issue. Author Eddy Frankel writes, “Is Soda vain and neurotic? Totally. But we all are. It’s just that instead of hiding her vanity on a hard drive, she is letting it out and allowing the whole internet to tear it apart. And by exposing herself, she’s exposing the rest of us. If you don’t like what you see, you might just be seeing a bit too much of yourself.” Me and my gurls is on view at Annka Kultys Gallery through 16 June. To read the full review online, click here.

Lara Monro of Teeth Magazine has interviewed Signe Pierce about her new solo show Metamirrorism on view at AKG. Discussing technocracy and the value of the term ‘cyberfeminism,’ Pierce had this to say: “I personally like [the term] because it is creating a new avenue, one that uses technology to give those who have been previously marginalised a voice. Cyberfeminism was very much predicting what will happen in the future whereas right now we are living very much in a digital age with platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. The internet has amplified all our voices and evened the playing field. We are in a sweet era – pre-net neutrality. Let’s enjoy it, because who knows what will happen with it all in the future.” To read the full interview, click here.

Stine Deja and Marie Munk have been interviewed by Hold Residency, a digital exhibition and editorial platform. Describing the feelings of sadness and isolation that the show explores, Deja says: “I think overall I see the idea of simulated intimacy as tragic for everyone/everything involved. Human intimacy with non-humans is unrequited and misunderstood, while intimacy between non-humans is flat and cliche, a replica of something that existed somewhere far removed. I also believe though that people connect with the videos because they project something into it, and that in itself is a layer of intimacy that is generated through the show.” You can find the full piece here.
Tank Magazine’s Jan-Peter Westad has interviewed Stine Deja and and Marie Munk about their collaboration in Synthetic Seduction, on view at Annka Kultys Gallery through 24 March. Munk says: “We were both interested in how technology alters social behaviour, especially the way we are intimate or present with one another. And we were also feeling a similar frustration working with themes situated in the crossover between reality and virtual reality. In combining our practices we felt we’d open up more possibilities to work across reality and VR divide, and uncover the tensions between the two.” You can read the full article here.
Drool Creatives has featured Signe Pierce’s upcoming solo show Metamirrorism. “Through the use of instantaneous recording and projection within a space mediated by light sources, mirrors, lenses and dichroic film, Pierce takes the gallery’s visitors as her raw material to create an immersive, reflected, refracted and abstracted universe of the ephemeral.” You can find the full listing here.

Describing Soda’s contribution to the exhibition, Moravec writes: “Molly Soda’s sound-video installations show her in her private spaces, acting in a casual manner in front of her virtual audience. In That’s Me in the Corner (2017), she sings along with pop music numbers for about 30 minutes. We can see that the live audience on Instagram is watching her, but whether shewatches the audience, is not clear as she continues to look straight ahead, smiling from time to time.” To read the full review, click here.

Describing her impetus in creating the project, Deja says: “4K Zen is a stress diet that promises an escape from the complexity of modern life by combining meditation and infomercials.

I place them in different environments and situations and let them interact. They are ambiguous and sometimes funny, sometimes friends and sometimes enemies. But they are always somehow erotic. They are stuck in a sort of technological and digital trance.” Check out the full interview here.
