You are the only one
Sigrid Hermann, Heinz Stahlhut, Eveline Suter & Claudio Vogt
In You are the only one, Swiss artist Sabrina Labis (b. 1990) reflects on values and evaluation systems, using ArtFacts.Net™ as her main point of reference. The platform, which uses an algorithm that rates artists on the basis of their participation in exhibitions, creates a corresponding ranking list. Labis leads us through a virtual art-fair architecture, a kind of empty formula that caricatures the White Cube as an ideal exhibition space. Virtually touring such rooms is reminiscent of treasure hunts in computer games in which one repeatedly encounters dead ends and various messages. Using the digital world of images as a matter of course—while linking its contents with animations, collages, and her own photos—the artist spins a multidimensional work. It asks: Who evaluates whom? And on what criteria? And, amid the antagonism between market and idealism, who wins in the end?
