Seeing You, Seeing Me is a group exhibition celebrating the dispersal and incongruity of ideas, concepts, objects and peoples, hosted on Instagram. It runs via Instagram from September 23 until October 30 and features 7 local visual and audio artists including Aki Yaguchi, DocG, Lotte Frances, Brigid Stafford (aka Stripey), Elle Shimada, Itgel, Ja_Keepitmoving and Isaiah Morris (Curator).
Creating an ever-expanding body of works for the duration of the show, it features 7 visual + audio artists, along with collaborative filters being released intermittently in the individual artists profile. Check out the statement from curator Isaiah Morris below;
“The notion of identity within contemporary culture is being shifted, the ‘tip of the iceberg’ has been disrupted, and we are now sifting through history, the positive and negative, rhetorical and allegorical. Our worlds have suddenly become solely online, crystal-clear identities formed via our social feeds, the virtue we signal and the content we consume. Yet we cannot even identify ourselves when we look in the mirror.
I miss seeing you, and you seeing me. The way your face alights when my vernacular alludes to something humorous or romantic. Oh so spectacular.
‘Seeing You, Seeing Me’ is a contemporary group exhibition, situated within the virtual realm. Where physics, the traditional gallery environment, and human-to-human connection are seemingly irrelevant. How we engage with both artist and works are questioned. Do we at the very least accept to discuss certain aspects of culture for the benefit of common ground? Or are we just engaged in a one-sided conversation…
I aim to see you, will you aim to see me?”– Isaiah Morris (Curator)
To celebrate the launch of the exhibition, we caught up with a few of the artists involved below.
