"Letters from a Seducer"
exhibition at Louise 186, Brussels
June 24, 25, 26th 2016
The installation Letters from a seducer explores the metaphysical implications of new forms of self-representation generated by the emergence of smartphone technology and the ways in which they reshape means of being and communicating : what kind of seduction is at play? And who or what is seducing who? Inspired by the mythology of Ancient Egypt and the tales of their magical relationship to images, this installation comprises a series of performative works which seek to explore the shifting relations between the virtual and the physical in a hypermediated context and the new cartographies of desire that are being drawn therein.
