About

In her first solo show, Lora Hristova censors pornography in an attempt not to prudishly hide explicit imagery but to covertly expose underlying mental conflicts. Using found video and imagery as well as reconstructed digital interactions the artist has created collages and videos that explore the sexual and emotional relationships between men and women. Dealing with issues surrounding intimacy and insecurity this work attempts to scrutinise internal inconsistencies and desperate base desires. Preceding the exhibition a poster commissioned by Art Below will be on the display for two weeks at Cockfosters Underground Station from 30th March- 13th April. The poster features a piece of work from the series My Better Half. By inserting this formerly X-rated material into a public place this piece explores the futility of censorship in the information age and questions the saturation of sexually charged imagery in advertising and mainstream media.
