Who’s Looking: Surf & Turf is an inquiry into engagements with art in the age of the internet. As our attention ecology manoeuvres between the online and offline, the agency and spectatorship of art in real life (IRL) extends beyond the physical and durational, through their parallel lives on the web (URL). Artists in this exhibition undertake these modes of encounters, producing works that are framed for/by diverse online platforms.
Organised by FOCA, and held at NTU Centre for Contemporary Art (Post-PopUp), Who's Looking's identity stems from the behavioural habits of an internet user, a digital native.
Focusing on the habit of scrolling, which is an action exclusive to the digital platform and the internet, cropped texts symbolise the idea of scrolling past a browser's window. Beyond the window of which a user views web content is the vast and infinite web space. The individual boxes is also inspired by pop-up advertisements that is prevalent in the current internet age.
