Artist Ultra Violet declares that "everyone should have an iPhone, a Mac and a self-portrait". She takes the conventional self-portrait and challenges its ideas, presumptions, and blind spots. Her art often addresses topics of consumerism, narcissism, and violence by using the very icons that stand for those ideas, making her work visually and conceptually provocative.
The artist's work will be presented by New York’s Dillon Gallery and will be on view during Art Basel Week at VOLTA9 from June 10th—15th, 2013.
GalleryLOG has partnered with VOLTA, in association with Blouin ARTINFO, to produce a series of unique short videos highlighting a selection of emerging artists for the art fair's Basel edition.
