idle idol at virtual Pleasure Zone art space


idle idol, 2020, Virtual Pleasure Zone, Basel, 4K, 360This animation idle idol is created especially for this virtual exhibition in the art space Pleasure Zone and shows a female avatar bought on the internet, performing different poses in an isolated environment.
The character is acting different poses one after the other in a permanent flow, inspired by generic female idle positions, suggested by standard websites for rigged female avatars.
By isolating and de-contextualising the character from it’s „natural“ environment and heroic action poses, often proposed for it’s category „science fiction“, these exercise-like movements of suggested female positions, show to some extend, it’s absurdity and raises several questions about gender, self-determination and self-construction in a highly technical, virtual environment. Last but not least, reminds us in a certain way of the actual isolating situation we are in at the moment, thrown back on ourselves, self- reflecting.
