Young goddesses rise from the debris of pop culture
OVERWORLD deals with how we access and broadcast information online, how we connect to information and to each other, what is meaningful and what is not.
Inspired by our immediate and unlimited capacity to access pop culture just as easily as ancient ritual and spiritual practice, OVERWORLD appropriates neo-paganism, yoga, music videos, death metal, online gaming, erotica and You-Tube. These disparate worlds are placed side by side, questioning how our uninhibited and superficial access to this information affects not only the way we relate to it, but more so, how we value it.

“OVERWORLD heralds a new aesthetic in high art: maximalist, freely mixing high and low references, unapologetically feminine, silly rather than stern, but thoughtful.” [Real Time] NEXT WAVE : Risk yields new forces – Maximum & Overworld
