Giselle STANBOROUGH

Born 1986, Waratah, NSW. Lives and works Sydney

Giselle Stanborough’s work raises questions about the colonisation of our social activities by large corporations and the way social media and dating apps are changing our intimate relationships.

Her new multi-platform artwork Lozein: Find the Lover You Deserve (2016) is based around a fictional match-making service and explores ‘the quantification of love in the digital age’. It includes interventions in the MCA’s digital infrastructure, such as its website and social media streams; a product launch and a conference in which the artist/entrepreneur delivers a series of lectures. In the style of corporate promotion and data visualisation, the company’s animations and slogans will promote the fictional Lozein brand throughout the gallery environment during the exhibition.

Stanborough describes her work as ‘a TED talks style tragedy addressing the hubris of a humanity that expects technology to resolve the discomfort of our existential loneliness, something that may itself be the fundamental defining characteristic of the human condition: the failed promises of language to provide meaningful access to another consciousness’.
