About the artistCanadian artist Sára Molčan (b. 1986) captures the universal desire to be liked through her large-scale paintings. Using herself as a vessel, Molčan’s work speaks to the careful curation of our own displays of emotions, our imperfect existence, and the ambivalence towards romantic partners in an effort to seem like you don’t care. Molčan’s work translates the ephemeral selfie into analog format, using technology as a veil of abstraction. Drawing inspiration from user interfaces, sexting, and identity play, her larger-than-life selfies demand to be removed from context and placed back in the digital world. Sára's work can be activated through AR with the app EyeJack, free on Android and iOS devices.
