L.V.Y. by JODI at Link Cabinet – Documentation

Universally recognized as Net Art pioneers, artist duo Jodi focus its practice on the deconstruction of technology systems: computers, softwares, videogames and the internet. Jodi’s works subvert the logics and the languages of computer technology re-designing its relationship with the users. Working on multiple levels such as code, commands and intefaces the artists create a completely unexpetced and unusual experience of technology, giving birth to situations in which the user find himself in a context where the usual undertsanding of these systems are completely renewed and redefined.


With L.V.Y. Jodi play with the limits of Link Cabinet itself, as a peculiar online exhibition space, trying to destabilize its rules. The project underline the impossibility to avoid and prevent the use of some basic functions that are the core structure of the Internet such as links among contents and websites positioned in different location of the Web. Morever the choice to use some mistyped top domains reveal the double intent to mimic one of the most common glithc that occur while using a kyeboard, while while at the same time trying to exploit it to reach a chance audience.
The project will be online on Link Cabinet till October 31, 2015. Below a video documentation of the exhibition


Jodi (Joan Heemskerk and Dirk Paesmans) is an artist duo formed in 1994 and has been among the first artists to investigate and subvert conventions of the Internet, computer programs, and video and computer games. Jodi’s works are typically seen online., however their works have been exhibited in several museum and institutions including, among others, Eyebeam, New Yor; FACT Centre, Liverpool; Centre for Contemporary Art, Glasgow; Kunstverein Bonn; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Zentrum fur Kunst und Medientechnologie, Karlsruhe; and Documenta X, Kassel.
Link Cabinet is a single web page hosting solo shows where artists exhibit a single, site-specific artwork. Conceived as a white and neutral exhibition space with an essential interface, Link Cabinet is a blank space that will be transformed by the works on display. After the show, the projects won’t be available on the site anymore. Link Cabinet is a project by Matteo Cremonesi for the Link Art Center.
The Link Art Center is proudly part of Masters & Servers. Networked Culture in the Post-Digital Age, a European adventure focused on a new generation of digital interventionism, awarded with a Creative Europe 2014 – 2020 grant. Up to August 2016, Masters & Servers will explore networked culture in the post-digital age.
