Chicago-based Meerdo, who’s work explores “the manifestation of meaning through digital translation,” and New York-based Salama who “renders materials to sift through virtual interests and relationships,” have brought their practices together to explore isolation and desire.
Working across mediums, the pieces appropriate and re-imagine materials, from faux fur, uncured resin, bungee cords, a dog harness, meat hooks and velvet ribbons to hydro-print on painted extruded polystyrene, hydrocal, acrylic, an LED screen, chains and USB drives.**
Like what you see on AQNB? We’d like to ask you for some help and encouragement by way of a monthly subscription to our Patreon. All funds raised will go directly to editorial commissioning and therefore support our contributors in their excellent work.
It is only through the dedication and generosity of everyone involved that AQNB manages to continue. More than ever we need to build a resilient space for independent media, one that works in collaboration with its artists, administrators, and audiences. Not everyone can afford to give donations we know - but if you can spare $1 a month, you like what AQNB is about and want to secure this space for the future, then please lend a hand and sign up. Thank u so much! <3
