About the Exhibition

You can’t have a “dystopia” without “stop,” and the next stop on our cataclysmic spiral toward a post-apocalyptic wasteland is HITBOX. This multimedia installation from the smiling doomsayer Natalie Hijinx takes us into the imminent, burning future, through the visual lexicon of a local corner store. Here one’s hunger is sated, one’s thirst is quenched, one’s crypto is exchanged for US¥, and briefly, things are going to be ok.

About the Artist

Natalie Hijinx (she/her) is a multidisciplinary artist, futurist, and member of the experimental artist collective Vox Populi Philadelphia.

Hijinx’s work is based on speculative futures and worst-case scenario alternate universes, realized in sculpture, installations, digitally fabricated objects, performance, public engagement stunts, and video. These elaborate projections are puzzled together from social and political failures, the impending climate apocalypse, the amorality of AI, declassified government experiments, conspiracy theories, and the logical outcomes of widely-held Profoundly Terrible Ideas. 

Her work was featured in Sculpture Magazine in 2019 and she was a 2018 Fellow of the Delaware Public Humanities Institute (DelPHI) for Material Culture Studies. Her favorite tools are her grandmother’s hammer and the Demo Hawg, a three-foot-long demolition crowbar.
