What we do

Elizabeth Mputu's distinct performance works use social media outlets like Facebook and Instagram as platforms for an exploration of virtual embodiment and online community. In this front page exhibition, Mputu guides viewers through "th3 5 elemental breaths + wen 2 utilize them 2 inhibit Facebook related stress" with her own hand gestures, screengrabs of Facebook logos, and serene music. The piece also riffs on pop culture signifers, like the text "4 kolored gurlz who have considered logging off when the klout is enuf" or emojis that dance on Facebook screens, desktops, the artist's own body.
