Laurel Nadadate. Digital Emunction:
As I see it, Nakadate makes two kinds of work: the kind she’s in, and the kind she’s not in. Interestingly enough, I can’t seem to find any images of the latter on the internet—which probably has some thing to do with the fact that, when Nakadate puts her self in front of her camera, she’s usually wearing little to no clothing, unless she’s dressed up in what I roll my own eyes to call Lolita-​esque getups.An extremely beautiful woman who is also half-​Japanese, half-​Caucasian, Nakadate’s race and age are, as she told the audience, ambiguous: “I make a lot of friends,” she said, as an object of taxonomic curiosity, though not (or so she seemed to imply) sexual interest. Despite the fact that a good part of her videos record unlikely “relationships” between her self and men who approach her on the street, Nakadate is careful never to describe these relation­ships as erotic, characterizing them rather as a form of “spending time” together. That spending time with Nakadate means watching her dance to “Oops! I Did It Again”, celebrating her birthday with cake, candles, and song, drawing her in the nude, or begging for your life while she holds an unloaded gun to your head, does not seem to inflect the artist’s own insistence that the narrative vignettes she creates are not about her desirabil ity or her power (sexual or otherwise), but rather about how “pathetic” she is, how embarrassingly desperate to not be left alone...
