Hagar Shaked Answers 5 Questions

by The Artslant Team
Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Hagar Shaked.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? The idea of constant search without being able to find it—that thing you are looking for but cannot name. I want to talk about things that we hide as the discovery of sexuality and intimacy. Our attachment to objects can often express what we are unable or not allowed to say.    Yellow Vase,... [more]

Anastasia Alekseevna Mikhaylova.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? My work’s subject is rooted in my own sense of mortality, which impacts my art. I study processes of physical, technical, and spiritual transformation and combine analog and digital projection techniques with performance, installation, video, painting, printmaking, and photography. I want to show the beauty and fragility of life and at the same time give positive space to contents which might not be... [more]

Living with the Past: Possessed/Dispossessed

by Malisa Humphrey
  I have used my work to examine history and the historical construction of the other as an entry point for understanding our current moment. The countless examples of undisguised racism in the United States following the 2016 presidential election, including the violence surrounding the removal of a Confederate statue in Charlottesville last summer, have led me to wonder over and over again: “What is America’s understanding of its violent past? How does the United States acknowledge... [more]

.   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? There are Hyperdimensional worlds existing around us at all times. Opulent, fractal, impossible, they spiral in and out of space and time, luminous and elusive, ever slipping through our fingers as we try to grasp them.  Everything is an illusion. The greatest secret is The Secret. Hall of Mirrors. Empty Awareness.   Prismscape II, 2015, Photograph   What is an artist’s responsibility? Raise the energetic... [more]

Marco Scozzaro Answers 5 Questions

by The Artslant Team
  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? I’m looking for the small spaces between, or around the edges of things. Overlapping that is an interest in how things can be pressed to perform on our behalf, to act as placeholders or mediators for lived experience. My work tries to negotiate with frames, flatness, and fixity, and the roles these terms play in contriving static subjects and communities. There are sentimental and escapist tendencies at play, filtering a manner of... [more]
