I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


WTF is a project initiated by Gala Knörr during her artist residency at Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris at the beginning of the year, and the continuation of her research in her studio in East London, through which she has been exploring the different ways people can communicate with each other inspired by her interaction with strangers and friends strictly through the online spectacle, particularly the app Snapchat.


“She explores the role of photography in pop culture, and its narrative effect of timebound and timelessness. Given that our social context has dramatically shifted since the 90’s with the introduction of technology, her practice of producing paintings based on sourced snaps poses a complicated and interesting conversation around our increasingly complex and layered social stratosphere.” – Jamie Grace Davis, Visiting Artist at École Nationale d’Arts de Paris Cergy 2015
