An Exhibition by Jesse Willesee and Daniel Havas: 22 Girls Smoking Weed

In their first-ever collaboration, artist Jesse Willesee, of Seven Hundred Photos fame, and music video director Daniel Havas, have combined forces with 22 ‘beautiful, stylish babes’ to create a fun, intimate and thoroughly modern portrait of the enigmatic, fashionable and creative young women of their generation – all who happen to enjoy smoking weed ...

The resulting images are a tribute to those acts of ‘casual art’ and self-portraiture found on popular blogging sites like Tumblr. This show marks the first installment of Jesse Willesee’s ‘Tumblr Trilogy”, a series of exhibitions which explore those artistic, pop cultural and personal preoccupations, known as ‘trending topics”, of the ‘Tumblr generation’ – one of which, time and again, is the use and glamorization of marijuana.

Photographed and filmed entirely on iPhone, using fish-eye lenses and filters, the resulting film and collection of over 40 photographs is part of the emerging iPhone-ography movement which sees artists, filmmakers and photographers forgo traditional equipment and instead capture the world as they see it through modern gadgets.

The show will take over the expanse of the now-abandoned Dr Pong bar and transform it into a complete 22 Girls experience, with an exhibition featuring over 40 photographs, a large-scale video projection, as well as a live installation, music, a ‘pizza party’ and themed merchandise including tote bags and collector cards.
