Excerpt from the press release for "Celebrity Sex Tapes / Aquarium Videos" curated by Kara Brooks at Lit Gallery, New York, NY, 2017

Kendra Exposed, a blue monochrome video projection, addresses a phenomenon the artist refers to as “the aesthetics of violation,” a media strategy present in genres such as upskirt photography and celebrity sex tapes. These media objects are promoted as materials that have been produced or distributed without consent of the subject, a strategy which points to the public’s interest in vulnerable images of women. Monochromes propose a utopic space, wherein no point has more value than another, and also function as a window to an infinite nothing, which Hinant compares to the void created and filled by our interactions with popular media.
