VIRTUAL NARCISSISM – solo exhibit. overview @GPLSpace4 in Vienna

 

Virtual Narcissism investigates, with a personal view, the concepts of intimacy, sexuality, loneliness and identity crisis in our digital era. It is a sort of storytelling, a narrative of the bittersweet reality of a lonely self, struggling through an identity crisis between physical and virtual realities. As loneliness centres on the act of being seen, when a person is lonely, they long to be witnessed, accepted, desired, in a sort of narcissism act. Sexuality, intimacy and female body are the centre of this artistic research, with a focus on the contraposition between hiding and exposing, covering and showing, shyness and self-confident in cyberspace. „The overall effect of it all is something approaching David Cronenberg, if he were exploring surrealistic body horror through VR  art” (D.J. Pangbur)

Martina Menegon (I) lebt und arbeitet in Wien. Sie absolvierte das Studium der Performativen Kunst an der University IUAV in Venedig und der Transmedialen Kunst in der Klasse von Brigitte Kowanz an der Universität für angewandte Kunst in Wien. In den letzten paar Jahren realisierte sie multimediale und interaktive Performances und Installationen unter Verwendung des eigenen Körpers. Der Fokus ihres Interesses liegt in der Untersuchung der Aufzeichnung, Festschreibung und Verzerrung des sogenannten „realen“ in der digitalen Abbildung.

 

Die Ausstellung ist im GPLspaceIV, Pressgasse 30, 1040 Wien bis 10.07.2016 zu sehen.
