The catalog was published on the occasion of the exhibition K8 Hardy: YDRAH 8K (8.23.20149.18.2014) at Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien.

K8 Hardy’s works of art garner performative energy from various fields and studies, frequently from the area of fashion, for example, and generally from current forms of representation and modi of self-presentation in digital-based social networks. In the process, she avoids committing herself to a single artistic medium, eludes artisanal virtuosity in photography, sculpture, and video, and produces as if drawing on a gigantic maelstrom of self-documentation and fashionable, queer-visionary transformation of identity.
