Contents page: Female Black Bodies by Shannon Bono

Artwork description: Medium-Collage on paper | Date-2018 | Website-www.bono-art.com

The anatomical manipulation of these female black bodies re-appropriates its uses of the Western society in the 15th century and partially including contemporary conceptions. Choosing to only exhibit their bodies, not their heads or their identities is a direct reference to the exhibition of black female bodies in the past. I use the body for political agency and necessary representation for social change and the celebration of difference.

Now You See Me 1.1 by Maritina Keleri

Description: The choice of eyes, as a theme in this stereogram, plays an important role, since this work is a pun about view. While the stereogramic 3D is visible the multiple gazes from the eyes look stronger; referring to Nietzsche’s quote ‘when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you’. In my mind the abyss refers to infinity as well, hence the seemingly endless repetition of them.

Not VR but real by Tere Chadwick

MEDIA: Ready Made / Installation
YEAR: 2018
DESCRIPTION: This piece arises from the personal creative process of the artist, where she finds herself with the need of throwing away almost new products that fail because of programmed obsolescence. It is also a critic to the first world’s practice of paying countries like China to receive their trash. She has built up a dialogue with waste of her artworks and materials found at the Exposed Arts Projects. It is so easy to find trash, but so difficult to make it disappear… Is an invitation to disconnect for an instance from our smartphones and reflect upon what are we going to do in the physical world with all this waste?
