As a means of expanding Co-Lab Project's programming into the digital realm, artist/curator Vladimir Mejia selects artists to participate in an Instagram hosted month-long residency. Artists are given full control of the @colabprojectsbitres Instagram account, and all images posted by the artist are categorized by hashtags representing the artist name in residency. Original concept by Sean Ripple.
Current Artist: Kate Barbee #bitresBar
Kate Barbee's main work is made up of cognitive narratives created through a polarized viewpoint of the fetishized spectacle. The use of lush symbolism, rhythmic detail and exaggerated figures, Barbee composes a flat perspective of the dark internal battle with voyeuristic generated guilt, and paranoia. For her time with #bitres, she will include essays, images, art shows, her own work and even fashion collaborations as an exploration through the dense process of finding inspiration.
