SAD-GIRL SIMULATOR

multimedia installation- concept by Hannah Jackson (succubusty), audio tracks by Lucie Holloway (420weedslut69), video projection by Morgan Sidky, photos by Savanna Todd (lipstickburger)

presented by the MAIDEN MOTHER CRONE EXHIBITION, organized by  Radical Spirits  and presented at the Toast Collective

The SAD-GIRL SIMULATOR is an act of resistance against the objectification of feminine-coded expressions of suffering that occurs in Western media and culture. Whether it be through mocking the act of “crying like a girl” or dilute representations of our suffering as “poor beautiful sad girl” tropes, our experiences are de-legitimized even as our own pain is packaged and sold right back to us. 

This a sad-girl’s bed, a place for ritualized sobbing into pillows, smearing wet eyeliner on your sheets. Place your head on the pillows and you can still hear her cries. Gaze up at the canopy to honour the teens brave enough to cry in front of webcams and upload their images for the world to experience along with them. Tears are the wood glue holding this bed together; indeed, it’s all that’s holding all of us together.

Can you name at least five contemporary Arab visual artists? How about just one? Thankfully, the exhibition over at the New Museum on Bowery is showcasing the works of over forty-five artists who share roots in the Arab world, and is a must see for anyone remotely interested in understanding…
