Video artist Anri Sala’s critically acclaimed new exhibit Anri Sala: Answer Me ruminates onthe dilemmas of modern life andis running at the New Museum through April 10th.
“[Social media] does not directly affect my work, but I’m aware that it affects how my work is perceived and apprehended,” Sala tells The New York Times. “Being with your phone, or being with Instagram, or being with a text message affects your awareness of what is really going on in the present moment. In my work, the experience is so important. The presence of the viewers, their trajectory, what they hear—all these things clash with the Internet.”
