#anonymous(im)possibilitiesintheivorytower #xoxo solo exhibition (2014) Hobusepea gallery, Tallinn
The nature of contemporary era in general has a real strong sense of mortality to me. Pop culture with its sub-genres, trends, technology and the ubiquitous presence of the WWW. The uprising novelties in cultures and arts that appear unprecedented have an intense dose of fresh entities that inevitably are about to vanish. It has a symbiotic connection to the ancient human desire to create, to be part of something never witnessed before. That gives contemporary phenomena and it’s presence immortal value.
How is the contemporary human condition abstracted when concerning the presence of the time in the history of mankind and what are the domestic aspects that reflect the day and age that one is living in? The ubiquitous Internet as an evolutionary platform carries the information that somehow reflects the presence of the contemporary mind. The WWW has grown into a limitless/ borderless society of its own, where the act of the individual entity has an anonymous role to play.
Since the internet is an evolutionary platform for carrying information, the urge of predicting the hereafter before it actually appears have been inherent to me ever since. As a visual artist I’m interested in the recently influenced content that has a huge impact on the visual language in general. The physical room surrounding us has been transformed and imbued by the physicality of internet and it’s aesthetics. Once a rare phenomenon the presence of the ubiquitous content has become so attached and fused to the modern world that it is inevitable to remove its influential nature from the contemporary society.
