Chisenhale Gallery presents a new commission by Sidsel Meineche Hansen, which explores London as a ‘surveillance capitalist’ city.
The exhibition features a video installation that explores the growing economy built on the monetisation of personal and behavioural data and it is presented alongside new photographic and sculptural works. Meineche Hansen’s work focuses on the industrial complex that connects virtual and robotic bodies to human labour within the pharmaceutical, pornographic and tech-industries. Her work combines computer generated imagery and virtual reality production with drawing, ceramics, photography, woodcut prints and sculpture.
In her practice the artists investigates issues related to institutional critique, labour, desire and value.
