Socials, Updates, Forums, Promotions, Trash, Performance by Giselle Stanborough
Part confessional, part prophecy, Giselle Stanborough’s performance dwells on the troubles of connecting wirelessly in daily life. Exploring the ambiguity of ‘the user’ as both the subject and object of technocapitalist knowledge/power systems, “Social/Updates/Forums/Promotions/Trash” merges the personal and public domains to explore the fraught complexities, gaps and imbrications of identity and identification in a reality that is always already virtual.
Giselle Stanborough is an intermedia artist whose works examine the interpolation of the self, and the relationship between connectivity and isolation. Motivated by a curiosity about the increasing indeterminacy between the private and public spheres, Stanborough’s work often addresses contemporary interpersonal experiences in relation to technology, feminism and consumer capitalism.
Suspended Moment brings together new works by artists Frances Barrett, Sally Rees and Giselle Stanborough – the three recipients of Suspended Moment: The Katthy Cavaliere Fellowship. Curated by Daniel Mudie Cunningham, Suspended Moment contextualises key works by Cavaliere alongside the fellowship artists who benefited from her enduring legacy.
