• WEAREDATA2 Portraits (2022-)

    In the digital age of now, humans are neither represented by brushstrokes, ink nor figures on a light-sensitive emulsion, but by a collection of square pixels. Tiles of data that can be viewed on backlit screens

    The “We Are Data” series of painted portraits explores the dramatic changes in portraiture over the past decades. The ongoing series began in 2021 and consists of 40 acrylic paintings on 21 x 29.7 cm paper. The faces depicted were indiscriminately copied from social media and compressed into binary to reveal the raw data beneath, while maintaining the anonymity of the subjects.

    Trash in the Yard (2022)
    Curation: Martina Raponi, Belle Phromchanya, Eden Mitsenmacher
    Featuring works by: Hasna El Ouali, Dasha Starostin, Eli Hooper, Federico Ramírez Hönack, Johannes Heißenberg, Keo Borejszo, Kirwin Lonwijk, Ringaile Demšyte, Vanya Tretyakov, Vera Serlier, Victoria McGuire, Yasemin Kevser
    Arboretum Trompenburg, Rotterdam

    The “We Are Data” project is an exploration of the impact of technology and digital culture on the traditional human experience of portraiture. The ongoing series began in 2021 and comprises of 40 paintings on A4 paper, created using digitised data from social media personas. In order to bring this concept further into the physical realm, a selection of 64 designs from the first version have been engraved onto slate tablets using a laser. The tablets were then buried in soil in an undisclosed location in South Holland, to represent an eternal reminder of the people depicted within. While it is intended to be an artwork, it also functions as an archaeological excavation of our digital world; a reminder that our presence in the digital realm is equally as real and lasting.

    Dit is Culture (2021)
    Red Floor Gallery, Alexandrium Shopping Centre, Rotterdam

    The ongoing painting series “Blok” was created during the global quarantine, drawing inspiration from wandering thoughts and dreams. This collection reflects a mental limbo, a liminal place of transition and self-reflection which both physically and mentally encompasses a limited space. Stojanowicz’s pixelated black-and-white paintings visualize the idea of a “grey, concrete apartment complex,” a place where people live, yet simultaneously is embedded in those who inhabit it. This space serves as a reminder of our limited memory, which stores everything in low resolution.

    Art should be accessible to everyone, and this goal can be achieved by bringing creators and viewers together in a visual-spatial interaction. The “Mark It Down” mural initiative, realized on a 1,200m2 surface at Rhôneweg in Amsterdam, was made possible through a collaborative effort between Sikkens, the MAKERSTOREN, and a collective of international artists.
