The Hole is pleased to present Software, the debut solo exhibition of Montreal-based visual artist, Vickie Vainionpää. Starting with a generative computer script and ending as oil on canvas, the work depicts softly textured, organic shapes that fold and twist on themselves to create hyper-real forms reminiscent of microorganisms or intestinal tangles. Software will open May 12th from 6-8 PM and remain on view through June 18th at The Hole’s Tribeca location at 86 Walker Street.

Inspired as much by biomorphic abstraction as the vaporwave aesthetics of early-2000s Tumblrs, Vainionpää uses code as a medium to create infinitely random relationships between diameter, curve and entanglement resulting in unique forms that relate to the dynamics of internal biology. The relationship between the body and technology is integral to Vainionpää’s symbiotic practice, through which the possibility of the virtual finds grounding in the texture of reality. Vainionpää finds creative freedom in the delicate balance between control and randomness that results from the generative process.
