LIZZY VAN MEGEN

LIZZYLEVIKANTJES

 

(2016)

 

 

On two scales we analyzed and fulfilled social prejudices and stereotypes personally known to us in different social constructs or contexts. At first on a small personal scale, which mostly included the prejudgment of our academic surroundings (read; classmates, teachers), which we met in a playful and ironic way by creating an instagram on which we show ourselves doing absolutely nothing.

 

In the installation we presented we also included a larger socially aware narrative. We combined our 'instagram-aesthetic' (including all kinds of inside jokes) with general presumptions and symbols associated with the millennial-generations. Evoking the opinion people generally seem to have about the millennial-generation; superficiality.

 

It is an active installation, in which the artist(s) are permanently present and it includes a self-made remix of the youtube video 'KYLIE UP CLOSE: My 2016 Resolutions' and 'Christina Aguilera screaming', accompanied by random airhorns.

 

In collaboration with Levi van Gelder.
