The Berlin-based artist uses, among other things, popular social media platforms to pick apart new confessional forms and explore the amateur psychiatrics at play, says the press release, which goes on to focus in on a conversation around the relationship between sharing and loneliness online: “Any semblance of intimacy is quickly erased by the sheer volume of likes and followers.”
Included in the space will be abstract paintings inspired by Instagram memes, a video subverting the tropes of a Powerpoint presentation, and sculptures that evoke corporate modern office furniture. Sansom will also prelude the May 27 opening with a conversation with Paul Luckraft at Zabludowicz Collection on May 25.
