My Feet Would Hurt If They Still Existed brings together a selection of artists whose practices engage with the ways contemporary life is mediated by digital technologies. Taking it’s title from an abstracted version of the "I wish I was at home" meme, the show examines a range of ideas around the anxiety of the digital: from the construction and perception of real and virtual space, to navigating the integration of spirituality and technology. The artists featured operate in a wide range of material contexts and are at varying stages of their careers. The exhibition assembles works that offer alternative modes of understanding technologies that have have consolidated contemporary experience.
