Working at the opposite pole from classical cinema narrative, Petra Cortright appropriates teenagers’visual and narrative codes such as webcams, emoticons, and animated GIFs. Her works, which are distributed on the internet, pick up on the imagery of video-sharing platforms. But Cortright does this with a remarkable instinct for cut-ins and an innate technical style. We get lost in a poetic triumph of wonderment over kitsch. She gives us eight stories here. The beginnings are her creation, after that they take their own course. Like us, the artist has no ideaof the outcome; the images are self-generating andthe narrative is infinite.
