Review is a video where Aimy, a virtual influencer, reviews her own videos. Appropriating the style of the contents that American celebrities and K-pop idols use to review music videos, the artist throws a skeptical question about the images of virtual influencers as contents commercially consumed. In the video, Aimy appears as a being that has a body in the digital world, sensed as a cold space with flexible flows, and a complex being that holds the AI system’s resources. Aimy, an entity that effortlessly traverses the boundaries of gender, humanity, and race, assumes the capacity to unabashedly disseminate its narrative with the potential for digital reproduction within the queer spectrum.
TZUSOO(추수) is based in Berlin and Seoul. Also active as a music video director, the artist crosses the boundaries as a “digital native” embracing a diversity of genres including pop culture and contemporary art. The artist looks at the virtual world that enchants and leads the physical world from an anthropological perspective, showcasing artworks based on the ideas such as queerness of the digital age, gender, and human rights. TZUSOO’s notable solo exhibitions include The Most Faithful Blasphemy (2022, Together Together, Seoul), Honey, Beta World Is Over Soon (2022, SOMA Art Space 700, Berlin), and Aimy’s Melancholy (2021, Electro Putere Gallery, Romania). The artist was also featured in Hackerspace (2023, TINC, Seoul), Right to Mother (2023, Hessel Museum of Art, New York), The Last Things Before The Last (2022, HITE Collection, Seoul), The Most Brilliant Moments for You (2022, Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art, Ansan).
