On the Internet, according to a well-known cartoon from the New Yorker, nobody knows that you are a dog. But on the Internet, nobody knows that you are a performance artist. This is shown on Instagram almost daily by conceptual artist Andy Kassier from Berlin and Signe Pierce from New York, who calls herself a reality artist. Both consciously blur the border between art and life when they question female and male stereotypes and role clichés in the social media.

 

“Success is only a smile away,”says Andy Kassier. His hairstyle and smile sit, the shoes and the Lamborghini shine. In Düsseldorf he will answer the question:”What can I do better?” When it comes to representation at a party, performance in society and success as an artist.

 

The American Signe Pierce, platinum blonde and sexy, is the hyperfeminine counterpart to Cashier. Her video “American Reflexxx” was first shown in 2013 at the Art Basel in Miami Beach, then it became a viral hit on the internet. An angry mob chased her through downtown Myrtle Beach, insulting her and later even knocked her down because she walked through the streets in miniskirt, high heels and with a mirroring mask on her face like a porn starlet who fell into reality. Reality Art Pierce calls her art because reality is her medium. In Düsseldorf, Signe Pierce presents her theories as part of her performance “Virtual Normality”, which alternates between TED and tech talk.
