DANCING WITH TIKTOK, 2021-2022

Acrylic painting on Mylar.

Dancing With Tiktok is Carin’s low-tech painting reaction to the social media app Tiktok. The vertical format short videos published from people’s phones with dancing, cooking, skits, DIY projects, and other trends brought various forms of comfort in a time of human isolation. With ‘something for everyone,’ Tiktok’s popularity skyrocketed while connecting people internationally and intergenerationally.

For this series, the artist worked in reverse, painting on the backside of the Mylar while watching videos on Tiktok. She gathered imprints, short bursts of impressions. Using only a few colors, she aimed to match the feelings of the short videos, not necessarily depicting in detail any individual moments. With videos averaging between 15 to 60 seconds, she focused on speed, painting with large gestural strokes.

The result on the front side of the Mylar always surprised her. In the layering process, the initial figures became less and less visible. Still, the paintings reminded her of the videos that started it all and the experience that the app’s algorithm had curated for her.

In the exhibition, viewers will only see the front side of the artwork, an abstracted composition, representing the blur and the takeaway of the whole experience of “going down the rabbit-hole” while watching video after video, now handed in the form of a ‘still’ for the viewer’s interpretation.


DANÇADO COM O TIKTOK, 2021-2022

Dancing With Tiktok é reação low tech em forma de pintura de Carin ao aplicativo de mídia social Tiktok. Os vídeos curtos e verticais postados diretamente dos celulares das pessoas com danças, receitas, esquetes, projetos de Faça Você Mesmo, e outros modismos trouxeram formas diversas de conforto. Com “algo pra todo mundo”, o Tik Tok conectou pessoas para além das fronteiras e gerações.

Para esta série, o artista trabalhou ao contrário, pintando na parte de trás do acetato enquanto assistia a vídeos no Tiktok. Ela reuniu impressões em pinceladas curtas. Usando apenas algumas cores, ela procurou combinar os sentimentos dos vídeos curtos, não necessariamente retratando em detalhes quaisquer momentos individuais. Com vídeos com média de 15 a 60 segundos, ela focou na velocidade, pintando com grandes traços gestuais.

O resultado na frente do acetato sempre a surpreendeu. No processo de sobreposição de camadas, as figuras iniciais tornaram-se cada vez menos visíveis. Ainda assim, as pinturas a lembraram dos vídeos que começaram tudo e da experiência que o algoritmo do aplicativo havia curado para ela.

Na exposição, os espectadores verão apenas a parte frontal da obra, uma composição abstrata, representando o borrão e a impressão geral de toda a experiência de “descer pela toca do coelho” enquanto se assiste vídeo após vídeo, agora entregue na forma de um ‘still’ para a interpretação do espectador.

On designated dates, the artist will offer abstract observation drawing workshops for the duration of the exhibition.
