#postinternet as the novelty of the ‘world wide web’ has disappeared.
‘#postinternet’ presents nine works by nine different artists from Australia, China, Colombia, Hong Kong, and the United States of America, with each work depicting a thoughtful
interpretation of our current global existence.
Post-internet lays bare expressions of self-identity, anxiety, and social trust; and the way we erode memory and nostalgia. To the Collection, the Internet became ‘post’ in the early 2000s, as western governments truced a trade-off between social safety and individual privacy following the tragic fall of the twin towers in New York. What it exposed was a snow
ball of politically induced exploits, questions of morality, and societal debates between anonymity and public security. What does it mean to be an internet-raised individual? That’s
the question the exhibition asks.
The Collection acquired this set of works between 2018 and 2021. Artwork ‘Hello, Goodbye, by Abdul Abdullah (Australia, 1986), is in association with the Kun Museum, in Beijing,
Produced by Jacobo Garcia Gil and Sarah Wei.
