Hello friends. It’s been awhile. Quite a long while. I bet you don’t even remember me anymore. I bet you don’t even know why you started following this website/blog. I bet you don’t even bother clicking this and might just unsubscribe. But here is a little update after the long absence from this portal. It has been a long adventure. Here is everything you’ve come to expect from me and I bet you don’t even care about it.
My Life so far:
A solo exhibtion by Sophia Kamal curated by Minut Init.
In WUDU Sophia Kamal explores subjects relating to identity, expolitation, religion, feminism and beauty through her sensually dynamic portraits that are not merely reflections of the physical and material but through her use of color and impression, they seem to turn into parapsychological readings of the subjects aura and well being ultimately revealing their dilemas and struggles from the perspective of a muslima in our current climate of cumulative extremism and globalized economy.
A fragmented social media circle consisting of artists from various platforms, brought together via online messages, and asked to reflect on online messages, Circle Jerks features artists working with hybridized mediums ranging from Virtual Installation to Chatroom Performance. Fragments of private messages, quotations, status updates, speech bubbles and other units of online conversation, often dismissed as transient or inconsequential, are the focus of this show. This exhibition posits these messages as the trace of the labour enacted in order to sustain the internet user’s identity, a mediation of personas that is usually undermined to maintain the semblance of a stable subject.
The show opens on the 14th of November (Saturday) 8pm with a live performance by Sudarshan that will be streamed through Michael Jordan’s #livingroomtoday project.
Following this visitors of Minut Init art social will have the opportunity to get to the artists behind these social media profiles better through a series of talks on the following dates (14 November – 28 November) :
- 15 November, 8pm : Katy Roseland (in Person)
