AboutâHarrowing but it is strong ' William Raban
Arch 402 Hoxton Arches is pleased to hold the first solo exhibition of recent MA graduate Lana Vanzetta
Vanzetta is a new and exciting video artist showcasing self-portraits that show her succumbing to the pressures of contemporary culture. She is a woman obsessed with status, substance abuse, charity, love and the loss of self. Vanzetta questions the world, its fixations and the pursuit of personal happiness.
This artist has nowhere to hide, and her autobiographical works tell the story of a divided life style that swings relentlessly and exhaustingly between the good and the bad.
Vanzetta's portraits are emotional, seductive and darkly humorous. They sit somewhere between reality and fantasy.
The viewer is both compelled and repulsed as they venture into a world of The Fake, The True and The Wannabe. Vanzetta is and has been many things: The Junky, The Super Hero, The Crazy, The CEO, The Philanthropist and The Down and Out. But like most of us, in the end she sits comfortably between The Saint and The Sinner.
This journey is not for the faint hearted, climb aboard and hold on tight!
