Art & Surveillance /// Addie Wagenknecht – Asymmetric Love (2013)


Met Asymmetric Love (2013) slaagt de Amerikaanse kunstenares Addie Wagenknecht erin een iconisch beeld te creëren door een barokke kroonluchter te kruisen met een resem bewakingscamera’s.

“It is a reflection of our current digital infrastructure, as the knowledge and ability to monitor others is defining the hieratic of power. It attempts to be perceived as something familiar in memory by the audience so that the details of the CCTV cameras recording them is overlooked. In that regard the surveillance is not perceived as a direct threat, which becomes the biggest threat of all.”
