To celebrate the launch of the Melbourne Art Book Fair 2021, the NGV design store has collaborated with Natasha Matila-Smith to produce a range of merchandise inspired by her artwork, Be my internet boyfriend, including this metallic poster.
Working with the language and aesthetics of internet-based confessional text, Natasha Matila-Smith considers disembodied displays of emotion in the online world, often through the tropes of romance. Matila-Smith examines how online personalities intersect with real-world ones and what this means for modern identities and society at large.
Gloss laminated and printed on luxury 250gsm Hanno Silk Art paper; the poster is a standard A1 in size measuring 59.4 x 84.1cm. Made in Melbourne and exclusive to the NGV design store.
