The Hole is proud to present a mixed media exhibition by Tara Subkoff in our rear gallery space and a special performance on November 5th as part of PERFORMA, the performance art biennial in New York. This is Subkoff's first full exhibition at the gallery after presenting a performance with us for Art Basel Miami Beach in 2017.

The exhibition consists of a film, rotating bed and mirror installation as well as small sculptures and silkscreened stills. The centerpiece of the show, Deepfake (25min) is a film that switches between one and four frames as it follows the main character Eve around the desert and LA. Eve seems to be experiencing layers of memory and slippages of identity and the viewer is unsure what visual information is reliable and what has been altered.

Creating a desert-scape of our subconscious in the film, Subkoff builds an augmented reality through her multi-media installation. The film is about blurring time with longing, pain, beauty, desolation and fear whilst questioning the branded identities of Eve & Adam. The installation introduces a spinning circular bed, a circular mirror installation that looks back at you and other sculptural interventions to induce the sort of hypnotic qualities of the film; to turn the viewer around, literally, and provide multiple reflections of them. Subkoff proposes the following questions:

"With the understanding of the current reality that 'Alexa' a female voice for the 'every-home' is programmed to function well only when yelled at aggressively and that this is only the beginning of our future of female AI sex-slave robots programmed and designed by white cis males; what mistakes will we be confronted with?"

"How in a post Me-Too, Times-Up, dating app, post-porn obsessed and addicted era of constant distractions will we, as females and identifying females, be relevant when we may be easily replaced by Deepfakes?"

Tara Subkoff’s work represents a next wave of artistic practice; working beyond the interdisciplinary she traverses not only different media but moves in between fields from fashion to film. Disguising herself as an “artist”, “director”, “actress”, “designer”; Subkoff brings her performative work to our everyday lives breaking down the lines that box us into a comfortable label, easily digested for consumption.
