Zach Shipko

Zach Shipko

Work from his oeuvre.

Shipko's work is more of an examination of internet culture and kitsch than anything else. In the same way that it is accessible to the casual viewer, it also relies on a thorough understanding (or at least an informed inundation) of internet culture and various memes. I am wondering if it is purposeful that there is nothing to be found written about his work, and I must admit that it was a different experience to see the internet through the art critical lens / diary of his miniature performances. For Shipko, the internet is a gallery, site of performance, and a laboratory as well as a venue for exhibition.
