Cat Heroicus Sublimis

A gif from my 2011 piece, What is your glitch? 1bitgifavibmpbmpcmykbmprgbjpgmpgpcxpixpngppmsgisvgtgawebp, is currently on show in the online exhibition Cat Heroicus Sublimis from Peer to Space.


Cat Heroicus Sublimis explores how digital artists use abstract visual language. The title refers to Barnett Newman’s painting Vir Heroicus Sublimis (1950-51) at MoMA. Newman hoped that the viewer would stand close to this expansive abstract work to experience a physical human encounter, which is part of his definition of the sublime as a “self evident reality” that comes “out of ourselves, out of our own feelings” and “can be understood by anyone”. Abstract Expressionist artists like Newman escaped traditional patterns and aesthetics to create their own understanding of the sublime.

The online exhibition Cat Heroicus Sublimis is curated by Tina Sauerländer and Peggy Schoenegge.

Log on to see my gif and works by artists including Alma Alloro, LaTurbo Avedon, Carla Gannis, Claudia Hart, Paul Hertz, Faith Holland, Rosa Menkman, Lorna Mills and so much more!

For NARGIFSUS artist Carla Gannis and curator Tina Sauerländer invited 50+ international artists to present animated GIF “Selfie-Self Portraits” that provide a broad range of artistic perspectives on contemporary selfie culture and self-display. This online exhibition (released March 20, 2016) follows the NARGIFSUS SCREENING at TRANSFER Gallery, Brooklyn, New York, on the occasion of the closing event of Carla Gannis’s solo show A Subject Self-Defined on March 19, 2016.

The Selfie Drawings by Carla Gannis, which are the prelude to the works in the show at TRANSFER, were part of the group show Porn to Pizza—Domestic Clichés curated by Tina Sauerländer at DAM Gallery in Berlin in 2015. The topic of the exhibition, the change of private and personal comfort zones in the Digital Age, complements Gannis’s The Selfie Drawings that deal with contemporary states of analog-virtual hybridity and identity performance.
