"The rhetorical form of DECODING Katy Perry’s Dark Horse (THE WHOLE

TRUTH) by Karin Ferrari, is clearly inspired by a rich vein of inde-

pendent documentaries on YouTube which purport to uncover

or cor
rectly analyze the symbolic manifestations of major conspi-

racies in our public life. Set in Memphis - Egypt - and suffused with

hieroglyphic imagery, an ultra light pop-music video by the

eponymous American star receives a dogged, and deadpan, analysis

in a voiceover supplied by the artist. Like the underground media

whose idioms it highlights, Ferrari’s argument is by turns wei rdly

convincing and highly implausible."

Nadim Samman, 'Deep Inside' V Moscow Biennale for Young Art, 2016





“Karin Ferrari’s perilous expedition through the obscure terrain

of Antarctic ‘alternative facts’ has resulted in an appropriately

warped documentary. DECODING The Mysteries of Antarctica

(THE WHOLE TRUTH) will premiere onboard the Akademik Sergei

Vavilov scientific research vessel after it crosses into the

Antarctic Circle.”
