GIFs, memes and emojis are the visual language of our digital presence. Moving freely across screens and platforms, they roam the internet, breaking our world down into yellow faces, cutting glances and purple vegetables.

Instantly recognisable and culturally specific, they come with their own index; languages with their own grammar and glossary. Through a syntax of image, icon and text, they mock the world with uncanny clarity.

.GIF will explore the fertile negotiations between contemporary art and the aesthetic of our online presence.
