Truisms and Inflammatory Essays by Jenny Holzer
girlsgetbusyzine:

From May 8th - June 7th 2014, Soma Contemporary Gallery Waterford will present Bunny Collective: The Young Girl’s Gaze.
This exhibition will explore how young women exist online, and how the internet can be harnessed as a mode of self-expression. Through a variety of mediums including installation, video and photography, the work on display will investigate the ways in which new internet platforms have impacted on female identity, and in turn what it means to present yourself on-line as a female. 
Bunny Collective are an all-female art collective originally formed at the Crawford College of Art and Design in September 2013. Since their formation, they have expanded to include a number of UK-based artists and have attracted international interest, including interviews with Dazed and Confused, and Brooklyn-based zine, The Le Sigh. 
Bunny Collective: The Young Girl’s Gaze will feature work from a number of emerging artists based in Cork and London. Their work will engage with themes such as identity construction online and alter egos; consumerism; the body as capital; fragmentation of self; teenage obsession; and how the internet can provide a positive alternative to male-dominated areas of artistic tradition. French collective Tiqqun’s seminal text, Preliminary Materials for a Theory of the Young-Girl will offer an important theoretical framework for how each of the artists will approach these issues.

Issue 6, Call for Submissions

saltmagazine:

‘I wished [that that] woman would write and proclaim this unique empire so that other women, other unacknowledged sovereigns, might exclaim: I, too, overflow; my desires have invented new desires, my body knows unheard-of songs. Time and again I, too have felt so full of luminous torrents that I could burst – burst with forms much more beautiful than those which are put up in frames and sold for a stinking fortune…Who, surprised and horrified by the fantastic tumult of her drives hasn’t accused herself of being a monster? Who, feeling a funny desire stirring inside her (to sing, to write, to dare to speak, in short to bring out something new), hasn’t thought she was sick? Well, her shameful sickness is that she resists death, that she makes trouble.’
The Laugh of the Medusa, Helene Cixous, 1975

1.
why isn’t every picture that exists of you with someone else
a picture of you with me instead

all of these people are so many people
and none of these people are me

 

2.
i am sitting in a corner eleven stories high and
i am a very long time away from you

 

3.
you are drinking my blood in a non-literal way
we laugh but make extremely worried faces
i am being myopic because there is only
one screen in front of me and one screen in front of you
and we are practically touching in here
(feeling real is hard work / moving is even harder)

 

4.
spring forward, fall back down
i’m trying not to wonder where you are

are you listening to this too

 

5.
it seems irrational that it is 2014
and i cannot just be in love with another person
who wants to be near me in the same ways
an advance in date doesn’t negate a regard for others
ok i understand but i will try to get what i want anyway
can everyone help

like hello welcome to this place
let’s both just stay

a long time ago someone told me that
it’s not cute to be persistent
(i know you don’t belong to me)
but i am so good at it
i think you will agree

 

6.
after three hours in karpeles i took a two hour walk
i made myself alone because there are too many books in the world already
and you are too good
you squeezed a sigh out of me when i returned and i felt found

 

7.
last night i dreamt someone offered me one thousand dollars to close my eyes and sit in a chair for sixty seconds and instead i moved onto the floor, kneeled and retched loudly in front of him. i stared at my hands pressed flat against the floor and lifted them up one by one. i slowly crawled out of the room.
