Jody Christopherson 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 Jody Christopherson.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? Human beings are more than just one thing. I’m a multidisciplinary artist: I write, perform, create music and visual art at a professional level. I don’t call that “extra,” I call that agency. The biggest lie artists (and women) are often told is that we need to ask permission to expand, that we... [more]

Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Caroline Dahlberg.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? Intimacy is the word that comes up a lot. The work I make is tactile, it wants to be touched. I think a lot about social scripts and contracts, like how you know the right moment to kiss someone on a first date. There are a lot of cues and situations and intuitions. Although, in terms of intimacy,... [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]

  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? If I have to point out something in particular and put it in words (which I find extremely difficult as I cannot grasp a clear and determined intention throughout my work), I would say that I do my best to share with others this strange and particular feeling I face towards my own perception of time: how it relates to our memories and our own history, how it relates to and pins down our lives. I try to reveal a sort of strange and... [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...

Kailum Graves Answers 5 Questions

  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...

The Marginal Labor Left for Humans: Brett Wallace’s AMAZING INDUSTRIES

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...
