Friday 24 of March opens the first long term exhibition of Sickhouse and we are very happy to welcome Anne Horel. After discovering her work online during the lockdown in 2020 we collaborated on several occasions playing with Anne online, inviting her to collaborate with other artists on the craziest face filter and supporting her in the creation of an interactive work for The Overkill masquerade, a cadavre exquis created based on the public participation.

Within this new chapter of our year program, we dive into social media platforms as we would in a rainbow version of the swamp, dangerously attractive. For the exhibition “Anne Horel Ctrl IRL” Sickhouse is challenging the artist to take her work out of the screens, out of their social media birthplace into the physical space.

The exhibition is both looking back at the long navigation of Anne through social media and looking into an accelerating future. The online, the virtual, the physical, the tales, the pop culture and the art history live together in her worlds, not afraid of the kitsch, the pop stars and the glitter. Also presenting her latest works and a new installation based on her exploration of Chat GPT and DallE, Anne is playing with humour and fantasy with every tool available online.
