Through installation, online components, a catalog and events, the work looks at the way “technology functions as metaphor for the body, both in the language we use and in the ways we behave.” Tapping into the intimate relationship we have with our personal devices, Holland explores the complexity of fetish, queer connection, abstraction and flesh: “they provide us with pleasure, and in exchange we offer care.”
Filling the space are photographs of heteronormative pairing of wires that are re-connected through ‘unexpected unions,’ screens of different devices playing GIFS and fused with pubic hair, lubricant or make-up, among other materials; a vinyl sign asking visitors to “remove their undergarments,” and a video of the artist bathing with ethernet cords.**
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
