Private View 1stà‚ July - 18thà‚ July 2014 Private View:à‚ 30thà‚ June 2014, 6-9pm Curated byà‚ Li Li Ren Artists including:à‚ Stephen Hall, Nu Li, Lou-Atessa Marcellin, Li Li Ren, Sam Tierney, Julia Varela At: Samia Gallery, 19 Henriques Street E1 1NBà‚  In our time everybody feels himself under surveillance. We know that we are exhibited, exposed to the gaze of the others. Ourà‚ privateà‚ sphere is permanently invaded, controlled by the state andà‚ privateà‚ institutions. And the visual regime under which we live is an asymmetrical one: we do not see the others watching us because the means of visual control are mostly hidden from our eyes. Thus, this regime is different from the panoptical regime as it was described by Foucault, e.g. as the regime under which we could see the subject of power that saw us. The question is: how to react to this asymmetrical visual regime? One way is to defend one'sà‚ privateà‚ space. But this strategy is obviously ineffective. The second way is to manipulate one's own image in a conscious way — to create this image by showing more than the other wants to see, and to invent what one shows. à‚ à‚ --------- Boris Groys To read full press release, please visit link below: http://samiagallery.blogspot.com/2014/06/private-view-curated-by-li-li-ren.html PRIVATE VIEW INVITE SENT AS ATTACHMENT.
