Hunting for Love


________________________________________

Peo­ple hunt each other; peo­ple are always look­ing for ways to com­mu­ni­cate with each other; when you hunt you expose your prey.

Nowa­days a big part of our liv­ing is vir­tual. Tools such as Face­book on inter­net are devel­op­ing a lan­guage of new social vir­tual behav­iors. The appro­pri­a­tion and use of this lan­guage (rec­og­niz­able icons and sta­tus) becomes a metaphor of the hunter and their prey. We chose Face­book, the biggest social net­work, because the pre­de­ter­mined tem­plates – phrases become weapons of social inter­ac­tion. On this plat­form you expose your self and THE other, you declare own­er­ship; you belong to some­one or you own some­one else.
The counter play of the ready-made ani­mal imagery and the Face­book sta­tus’ is a sub­tle ges­ture that demon­strates these concerns.

Series of 3 inter­vened ready-made tapes­tries por­tray­ing kitsch ani­mal images, embroi­dered with the Face­book sta­tus phrases. What can be more cheap and ephemeral than a Face­book status?
