»Sync, Psych, Self (sic): The Self Portrait Exhibition«

Curated by Stephanie Ballantine

Aasiyah Wheniseeya, Albina Maks, Anett Pósalaki, Bea Rodrigues, Benjamin Pfau, Candice Nembhard, Daantje Bons, Danielle Terblanche, Delaine Le Bas, Elly Clarke, Erika Zanelli, Giulia Thinnes, Hedda Hennix, Inkje Drescher, Irene Cruz, Isra Yaghi, Jesus Ordaz, Joanna Szproch, John Carter, Kat Toronto, Massat Bilu-Issler, Mercedes Talevi, Merve Terzi, Mora Kirchner, Natalia Portnoy, Pedda Borowski, Piotr Kuszynski, Ricardo Williams, Róbert Weinraub, Sarawut Chutiwongpeti, Seraphina Klimmet, Stephanie Stonem

FK-Galerie introduces 32 selected artists selected from nearly 200 photographic submissions. The open submission exhibition encouraged photographers and artists to submit photographs they deem a ‘self portrait’.

Facilitated and created by photographer & performance artist Stephanie Ballantine; the curation concept explores the heritage and ideology of the self portrait: Ballantine reflects on self portraiture as a medium which has been used to uncover and explore oppressive norms, and poses the question of its place within a ‘selfie’ saturated environment. She posits self portraiture as a perspective within spheres of art, feminism, gender theory, post humanism, as well as fields of psychology.

Urban Dictionary:
sync:
to be in a same state of mind or thinking
Psych:
To retract your previous statement, in an attempt to fool the person you’re talking/chatting to.
self:
The field of psychology attempts to define it with circular definitions. The truth is, we don’t really know how to define self… not objectively at least. In a few words, self is consciousness. Consciousness escapes objective description (poor example: your experience of the colour red, is it the same as mine?). If a definition requires an objective description, then self is un-definable.
sic:
(sic) (Latin for “thus”) is a bracketed expression used to indicate that an unusual spelling, phrase, or any other preceding quoted material is intended to be read or printed exactly as shown (rather than being an error) and should not be corrected. When found in a French document, (sic) stands for “Sans Intention Comique” (without comic intention) meaning that even if the preceding text could be understood as funny, it was not meant to be. It is used by writers quoting someone to alert the reader to the fact that an error or other weirdness in the quoted material is in the original, and not an error of transcription. “Sic” is almost always enclosed in parentheses.

Oxford Dictionary.com:
sync:
= Synchronization.
The operation or activity of two or more things at the same time or rate.
psych:
1) short for psychiatric
2)(as adjective psyched) Mentally prepare (someone) for a testing task or occasion.
self:
A person’s essential being that distinguishes them from others, especially considered as the object of introspection or reflexive action.
sic:
Used in brackets after a copied or quoted word that appears odd or erroneous; to show that the word is quoted exactly as it stands in the original = Latin, literally ‘so, thus’.
