.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? For me, it’s important to follow trends, but I am also abhorred by their distortion. We live in the time of sterile aesthetics, uniform beauty, plastic surgeries, computers, high tech, and countless other options to modify our bodies. Through photographs, I overstate all those available possibilities for corporal transformation. We long for change from the outside, unaware how much our emotional states disturb our physical bodies.... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? With my work I make observations about the time, the society, and the world I live in. I want to raise questions about some aspects and dynamics. I’m interested in the paradoxes and dichotomies of modern living and the effects of mass media and consumer culture on identity. I am interested in what is an image today, in decoding the signs of the visual landscape and creating new associations to better understand the disorienting time... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? Inspired by the work of Brion Gysin, Dan Graham, Genesis P-Orridge, my work proposes a meta-religion based on two main things: rock & roll and mysticism. Functioning like a secret order that emphasizes the spiritual attributes of musical movements like the blues, rasta, Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth (TOPY), Texan sixties psychedelic rock, or German krautrock, I try to propose a new iconography based on the music and musicians...

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? I consider my work political, but I prefer the subtle process of reflection over the shoveling of an opinion down a viewer's throat. That's probably because I don't think art is a political or emancipatory force—rather, it is what Fredric Jameson labeled “just another ‘pop’ in an all-pervasive pop-culture.” Thus, I’m not interested in examining or establishing perceived truths; instead, I’m interested in exploring the Absurd—the...

by Joel Kuennen
SPRING/BREAK Art Show 2018, more than 100 curators will feature artists and exhibitions that consider the theme: Stranger Comes to Town. It’s been said that all great literature boils down to one of two stories: a hero goes on a journey or a stranger comes to town. “Who and what is this Stranger?” ask SPRING/BREAK curators and founders, Ambre Kelly and Andrew Gori. “Is their travel into the unknown always an act of heroism to some, of colonialism or contamination and infiltration to...
