The catalog was published on the occasion of the exhibition K8 Hardy: YDRAH 8K (8.23.2014 – 9.18.2014) 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.
holds a BA in Film and Women’s Studies from Smith College, an independent study program from the Whitney Museum of American Art, and an MFA from the Milton Avery Graduate School of Art at Bard College. Hardy is a founding member of the Queer Feminist Journal and the Queer Feminist Artist Collective LTTR. Her work is in the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art and has been exhibited and performed internationally.
