"Self Portrait as OkCupid Questionnaire"
Carla Adams


Opening: Wednesday 16 March, 6-8pm
Dates: 16 March – 2 April 2016

Self Portrait as OkCupid Questionnaire is a screen recording of artist Carla Adams typing answers to questions that form part of the ‘match survey’ on dating website OkCupid.com

This work was made at the start of a studio residency at Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts where I set myself the task of finding an online boyfriend and making work in response to the relationship. This video poses questions about how women chose to present themselves online – especially in an environment where the male gaze is so heavily exercised.

Carla Adams (b.1984) is an early career West Australian artist. After graduating from Central TAFE in 2012, her work was selected for the 2013 Hatched National Graduate Exhibition at Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts. In 2014, Adams was awarded first class honours from Curtin University and has exhibited at APPLECROSS Art Space, Free Range Gallery, Paper Mountain, PSAS and MOANA project space. She is special programs coordinator at Free Range ARI and is a sessional academic at Curtin University. Her broader practice explores how digital environments can define contemporary intimacy and desire between users and is concerned with those personal and intimate encounters rather than mass attended online spaces.
