Jill Magid's 'Authority to Remove'
Yesterday I had the chance to go see the ‘Authority to Remove’ exhibition by Jill Magid, an American artist showing in Tate modern. I have read some time last year about her projects, she usually plays around challenging technology into sensuality, using spy cameras, videos, texts, emails on intranets, narratives, performances… to engage the systems in romantic journeys, juggling between the profile of artist, surveillance subject and surveyor. Pretty political, she questions issues of identity, power, protection, and trust… this show is a one-time-only exhibition due to censorship reasons (Authority to remove was a commissioned project originally).
Below are links related to Jill’s artwork:
