Free the Eyeball24 May – 7 Jul 2019 / Exhibition@Nest
A solo exhibition of Tanja Ritterbex
How to live in times when self-appointed gurus, online influencers and sly commercials teach you happiness? When the most ordered book-genre online is on self-help? Could art offer any consolation?
In sixty video works Tanja Ritterbex investigates the role of the opinionated influencer. Ritterbex takes her own life as a starting point, set in Curaçao where she is currently residing, at The Instituto Bueno Bista. ‘Free the Eyeball’ offers an insight into the seemingly random world in which self-tanning tutorials alternate with a serious attempt to find online affection.
