"Big Mood, Mauro Martinez’s eagerly anticipated debut show with Unit London, centres around the phenomenon of ‘cursed imagery’. A concept born on Tumblr in 2016, ‘cursed images’ are ostensibly mundane images that are lent significance by unnerving content and/or poor picture quality. 'Cursed images' are primarily the work of 'Zoomers' (a coining of the term ‘Boomer’ for Generation Z). Members of this digitally literate generation are voicing their social apathy by creating unsettling images that often critique well respected societal institutions. As Martinez’s work has traditionally engaged with notions of meme culture and content censorship - delving into our contemporary relationship with the image - this shift towards 'cursed imagery' is a perfectly natural progression, one that takes the work to a darker corner of the internet.
