The recent leaked nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and others are going to be printed onto life-sized canvases and exhibited at an upcoming event being held in Los Angeles.
Cory Allen Contemporary Art (CACA) has announced that these works will be included in the new additions to the artist XVALA’s “Fear Google” concept.
The exhibits will be displayed at his upcoming exhibition named “No Delete”, at the CACA’s Space known as The Showroom in St Petersburg, Florida on 30th October 2014.
In a statement, the artist’s publicist Cory Allen said: “XVALA appropriating celebrity compromised images and the overall ‘Fear Google’ campaign has helped strengthen the ongoing debate over privacy in the digital era. The commentary behind this show is a reflection of who we are today. We all become ‘users’ and in the end, we become ‘used’”.
XVALA himself added: “In today’s culture, everybody wants to know everything about everybody. An individual’s privacy has become everyone else’s business. It has become cash for cache.”
The personal, unaltered photos will be presented alongside other images of collected by the artist from Google over the past seven years. It will feature those celebrities that have had their privacy broken by the internet or paparazzi, including Britney Spears’ shaved head and nude photos of Scarlet Johansson, which saw the hacker Christopher Chaney sent to jail for 10 years in 2012.
