The unreality of really, really bad TripAdvisor reviews manifested as reality
Like many things on the internet a disconnect exists between online and offline worlds. In this case TripAdvisor reviews and the reality of what the location, hotel, etc is actually really like.
This work amplifies the notion of terrible online reviews documented here in a physical reality, as if such negative reviews online have manifested their own offline reality. As the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse, dystopian nightmare, or post apocalyptic holiday rental.
Director Biography - Ian Haig
Ian Haig works across media, from video, sculpture, technology-based media and installation. Haig’s practice refuses to accept that the low and the base level are devoid of value and cultural meaning. His body obsessed themes can be seen throughout a large body of work over the last twenty years. Previous works have looked to the contemporary media sphere and its relationship to the visceral body, the degenerative aspects of pervasive new technologies, to cultural forms of fanaticism and cults, to ideas of attraction and repulsion, body horror, the defamiliarisation and confrontation of the human body.
His work has been exhibited in galleries and film/video/media festivals around the world. Including exhibitions at: The Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne; The Ian Potter Museum of Art, Melbourne; The Experimental Art Foundation, Adelaide; The Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Melbourne; Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Artec Biennale – Nagoya, Japan; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Art Museum of China, Beijing; Museum Villa Rot, Burgrieden-Rot, Germany. In addition, his video work has screened in over 120 Festivals internationally. In 2003 he received a fellowship from the New Media Arts Board of the Australia Council and in 2013 and 2017 he curated the video art shows Unco and Very Unco at The Torrance Art Museum in Los Angeles.
