Nosy _ the surveillance era

Valentina Loffredo


The global issue of privacy in the digital age is the central theme of Nosy, a multi-media project that includes photographs, sculptural objects, installations and a limited edition of unique artist books – first exhibited in Hong Kong in November 2020. Not confined to the space of the gallery walls, the project also extended to other parts of town by “sticking its noses into other people’s business” – literally – with the artist’s ad hoc placements of sculptural noses.

The project mimics the conflict between the seductive power of technology, expressed through the playful and attractive appearance of the artworks, and its dark “nosy” side, revealed by the repetitive and uncanny presence of human noses.
