Press Release –
Inspired by the Street Art movement, immediate interactivity of social media and a desire to free art from its function as commodity,See Me Tell Me, makes small, anonymous, slightly magical packages which she leaves – one critic called it gifting – across the world. Over 4,000 have been released in the US, UK, France, Cuba, Cambodia, Turkey, Germany, Spain, and Australia since June 2010. Using low-art materials she creates series dealing with historic and contemporary art, artists and styles, fashion, vanity, play, protest, and travel. After developing a concept she manufactures the works within a limited time period and then places the works in public areas – the street and the subway – for viewers to take away and add to their collections.
The website address and QR code are placed on each piece to elicit viewer responses which have ranged from a brief, “I found one,” to remarkable lengthy messages on how the works have affected the collector’s lives.
This exhibition will consist of a selection of her recent works from the Shawabits and Pest series, a collection of daily collages and plaques from her Monarch and One Inch Missive series, a group of cyanotype prints, mint box assemblages with small lights, and an assortment of her other See Me Tell Me projects.
