bitforms gallery is pleased to present every day the same again, Addie Wagenknecht’s third solo exhibition. Wagenknecht frequently repurposes systems with an ethos of hacker culture, usurping materials—such as cosmetics, surveillance devices, Roombas, and pharmaceuticals—of their inherent function to encourage the tension between expression and the programmed role of devices. The artist has long examined elements of visibility and identity, and in the continuing tide of Covid-19 she positions this exhibition as an inquiry towards America as both a foreigner and a citizen. The pandemic acts as a lens and guiding structure for Wagenknecht’s studies from across the Atlantic.
We went to the bitforms gallery in NYC to see this, it was great.
