About the exhibition
“Untitled_(WAG)” is an artwork that enquiries you about your own expectations as an art viewer. It was specifically conceived for the classic white gallery space of the WAG and intends to address you in an intimate way.
Susana Mendes Silva’s work incorporates elements of research and archival practice that leads to the creation of works whose historical and political references become visible as exhibitions, actions and performances that employ a wide variety of media. Her universe considers and reframes different social contexts without ever losing track of the individual’s uniqueness. Her psychological intimacy and her voice are often the means for the diffusion and reception of poetic and political messages that call upon them. Artist website: http://www.susanamendessilva.com
What is WAG
The “WAG” is a mini 3-dimensional, single room gallery that fits into people pocket for IPhone, IPod Touch and I Pad. Every month, directly on audience mobile, The “WAG” hosts a solo digital art exhibition related to the dynamic site-specific contest. So, the Widget Art Gallery works both as a sort of kunsthalle showing temporary exhibitions and as a permanent collections museum because it conserves all the past exhibitions inside an online archive.
