On Instagram, viewers are invited to participate in the creation process. The exhibition, called “Facing Strange Dream,” is part of a modern wave of art-making that’s broadening its horizons through social media.
“I want it to be like stepping into a land of adventure; a place where imagination and play are paramount to logic and utility. I really always think that way with my art, but in this project it becomes extra clear. I utställningen Facing Strange Dream har hon för första gången införlivat animation i sitt måleri för att skapa en helt ny projektionsyta för sina motiv: ansiktsfilter.
“It has been a long-time dream to incorporate augmented reality in my visual world in order to see how it can give more people the opportunity to take part in my art,” Yoyo said in a press release. “In this exhibition, I want the viewer to be able to play freely in the borderland between art, body and technology.”
“Yoyo Nasty is the perfect example of someone who creates magic in her field,” Johanna Sahlman, head of Halebop, said. “She is challenging a digital technology that many of us take for granted, and for Halebop it is extremely exciting to take part in how social media can be a platform where artists create their art together with others. It is exactly this type of innovation that we want to highlight with Creative Call.”
