sync, psych, self (sic): the self portrait exhibition (2018) at Foto Klub Kollektiv
Foto Klub Kollektiv’s Stephanie Ballantine curated the group exhibition sync, psych, self (sic). The show aimed to examine how we redefine self-portraits in the “selfie” era. The two works below were featured. The images explore how self-understanding and self-defining is a sum of surrounding opinions, comments, and trends, suggesting that we do not curate ourselves but subconsciously allow others do it for us. The images particularly speak to the ways in which black women fall in and out of caricatures created by cis, white men.
