Check Out Popular Artist Julia Sinelnikova’s Solo Art Exhibition at Superchief Gallery in Ridgewood!
Text and media from Superchief Gallery and Julia Sinelnikova
Using Superchiefs vast 7,000 sqft warehouse as a landscape for her immersive cyber-punk environment Rootkit, Julia Sinelnikova utilizes projectors, hand cut mylar, and more to create a living duplication of the often invisible world of cyber warfare. Using her highly developed technical skill set Julia fuses light, sound, gifs, and other advanced computer technologies with Superchief’s collection of projectors, 25ft wide screens and space to build a strange and awe-inspiring metaverse.
Julia gleans inspiration from sci-fi fantasies that are quickly becoming hardcore realities; concepts on the forefront of internet freedom such as issues surrounding security, surveillance, censorship, and autonomy. The installation, aptly named Rootkit, is partly based on one of the most notorious computer viruses. Linking her research about cybersecurity and her favorite futurist novels Julia continues to create work that delves deep into the dark web in order to educate and build solidarity in this ethereal world.
Her work has been shown globally, and locally, in venues like The Hole and the Brooklyn Hangar.
