Sidsel Meineche Hansen
Artist talk with Sidsel Meineche Hansen, organized in collaboration with KASK Lectures. Sidsel Meineche Hansen's visit happens on the occasion of her solo exhibition at KIOSK in the summer of 2024.
In a world where CCTV cameras record all manner of public life, private images are ceaselessly uploaded to social media, deep fakes abound, and digital avatars can simulate human behaviour with increasing accuracy, our understanding of the body is progressively harder to separate from digital life. In Sidsel Meineche Hansen’s provocative and unsettling work, the ways these forms of photographic, televisual, and digital media impact our perceptions of ourselves is brought into sharp focus. Hansen’s work fixates on the amassment of capital created through the gendering of bodies, especially in the field of pornography.
