CURA | 1 June 2018

ANNKA KULTYS GALLERY

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.

HOLD | 21 March 2018

ANNKA KULTYS GALLERY

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.

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.
