SELF HELP

(Curator)

SELF HELP is a group show and collaborative program at Rawson Projects, featuring the work of CONFETTISYSTEM, Thomas Jeppe, Georgie Roxby Smith, and Pinar Yolacan, with performances by No Lands, HOROSCOPE, Bichon, and Life Coach Georgia.

SELF HELP looks at strategies we use to control, change, or preserve ourselves, and the radical, technologically-assisted narcissistic mania that accompanies contemporary quests for equilibrium, enlightenment, or self-actualization. Enmeshed with the postmodern emphasis on subjectivity, but also with the bootstrapping fundamentals of start-up ideology, global capitalism and the American dream, SELF HELP is interested in the space between the self-destructive and self-constructive, when self-improvement becomes self-invention.
