Charlottenborg Art Talks
Sidsel Meineche Hansen
5pm - 6.30pm
This talk will focus on the female avatar ‘EVA v3.0’ which is a product sold online by TurboSquid, a company that supplies stock 3D models for computer games and virtual adult entertainment. The EVA v3.0 avatar is the main protagonist in Sidsel Meineche Hansen's recent work: The CGI and VR animations: Seroquel®, 2014; No right way 2 cum, 2015 and DICKGIRL 3D(X), 2016) - and an object in my research on post-human sex. As part of the presentation, Meineche Hansen will screen some of her video works and talk about the 'pharmacopornographic' model of society as the context for the production of this body of work.
Sidsel Meineche Hansen (DK) is an artist based in London. Her work takes the form of woodcut prints, sculptures, CGI and VR animations which typically foreground the body's industrial complex in the pharmaceutical, porn and tech-industries.
