Naomi Sex - it spoke

Watching the artist talk. It's a curious thing. Primarily accustomed to the visual language, artists are not typically your best orators. Yet in the contemporary industry of being a 'professional' artist we expect these artist talks and statements. But does this really make the artist legit?

Naomi Sex plays with the performative elements of the contemporary art world. From artist talks, to panel symposiums, to exhibition selection processes and rituals. A humourous dialogue between language, puns and props. Balancing between the critical and the satirical. Yes, the contemporary art world is a self consciously weird place.
