Khan Of Finland & Jo – Ta | Site – Specific Installation | Manila Biennale 2018, Philippines.

Art Work presented at the 1st Manila Biennale 2018, Philippines. Describes the line of participants waiting to enter the scene, the magic circle, the social network in addictive repetition. Searching for love.

Today we barely see the stars. We rather look at the glow on our cell phones. Today’s stories are told on our Facebook walls. The gods we evoke come as shiny electronic gadgets. We dance in line on eBay, we leave our marks on Instagram. The modern city is the place of our desire. We come to meet our dreams. A dream that seems to expand endlessly and is shared by millions. Still, we feel isolated, searching for love.

Screenshots of selfies for social love networks were modified and implemented to animated them inside a cube. Meanwhile, the audio is a subway recording in Mexico and slightly distorted. No identity is compromised in this work.
