Haley Morris-Caferio – The Bully Pulpit

TJ Boulting is delighted to present their first solo show with American artist Haley Morris-Cafiero. Part performer, part artist, part provocateur, part spectator, for this latest series ‘The Bully Pulpit’ Haley played cyber bullies at their own game. After being trolled about her appearance when her previous project ‘The Watchers’ went viral, she went about finding images of some of these online bullies, dressing up like them and incorporating their own words into the image itself. Using deliberately low-fi props and prosthetic, these comical self-portraits bely the darker level of human nature in our contemporary online world.

It’s classic burlesque. Probably the most infuriating thing of all for her bullies is that she looks like she’s having a really good time.
