V/IRL

 

V/IRL surveys the post-internet art of Lena NW, a self-proclaimed feminist nihilist. Her wildly colorful and explicit video games, comics and rap are NSFW, yet thoughtfully engage ideas about female sexuality and selfhood in the internet age. NW’s frank, articulate commentary includes young girls’ exposure to pornography, cybersex coming-of-age stories, and the complex relationship between commodification, domination, and self-empowerment. V/IRL combines elements of traditional documentary and virtual surrealism to explore not only the artist’s themes, but also the formal techniques of contemporary, transdisciplinary art.
