Girls I Know
Omer reveals representative transformations of prefigured identities free of decorative intent and expressive of an assertive patriarchal individuality, illustrative of the objectification of women as non-arbitrary subjects incarcerated by streamlined juxtapositions to become characters that separate themselves from the source, forcing an enigmatic identity to become metaphorical and mythological demonic subjects of men.
Imposition is an impassioned “objective” work devoid of complicity, as an artificially contrived literary and literal inversion influenced by the tension of a struggle between two opposing forces immersed in the continuum of a visual-virtual culture. Imposition celebrates the unintentional intersections of an assimilative entanglement that appropriate iconography and symbolism as incarnations of an intimate relationship to destabilize and manipulate modern human identity.
