Broadly has just published a new interview with Signe Pierce in collaboration with Vice. Published alongside the interview are a new series of photographs by Pierce, which the artist has created without the use of digital manipulation. Describing these works, the author writes: “With these images, [Pierce] wants to straddle the line between technology and biology, control and submission, self and selfie, by placing her own nude body in its crosshairs and dismantling the stigma that comes with photographing oneself.” The essay and accompanying photographs are published in Broadly‘s Privacy and Perception Issue as well as Vice‘s Photography issue. You can find the full interview with accompanying images here.
VICE has just published a review of Me and My Gurls, Molly Soda’s third solo show at Annka Kultys Gallery, alongside an interview with the artist. 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.
Ivana Basic’s exhibition at Marlborough Gallery, New York, was reviewed in Creator Vice.
