Description

For her first institutional solo Darja Bajagic turns to the murky terrain where real and staged violence bleed into each other with an ease both unsettling and alluring. This has been a key undercurrent to a practice that spans painting, sculpture, video, and installation. Following the lure of the fringes, the artist culls her imagery from fan-gore magazines, true-crime TV shows, fetish websites, obscure online forums, and hidden chat rooms tucked away in the darker reaches of the Web. She handles these disparate source materials with a dose of humor, working them into densely layered compositions that are at once confrontational and poetically fragile. Bajagic explores loaded questions of embodiment, viewership, and power relations, all the while interrogating our need to hold images accountable.
