@AndyKassier, sunny side up, 2018

It doesn't matter where you come from and what your history is. 
It’s all about your vision and ambition. Don't listen to anyone, not even your mum. Take the way you want! The time is now!

Thank you, Andy Kassier!

@AndyKassier, the grinder, 2017

My competitors buried me under tons of stones. I just stand up, shake off the dust and go on. They call me the Grinder, cause even stones ain't hard enough for me.

Authenticity, it is commonly assumed, is a strength of social media. On Instagram, everyone can be themselves. That is not the case, however, as every teenager in the United States knows all too well. Private life is staged; what cannot possibly be in real life becomes possible online. The artist Andy Kassier says: “The Porsche in the street is perhaps not mine. If I stand in front of it, take a selfie and post it on Instagram, then it is mine.” Kassier slips into the role of the rich self-made man on social media and adapts, for his own purposes, the ways in which successful men present themselves on the Internet. “I don’t care about possession, I care about possibilities,” he explains. “What can you do without spending money?” #sunnysideup_exhibit

@AndyKassier, it’s a jungle out there, 2018

It’s a jungle out there. Permanent vacation, never not working.

What does it mean to be perfect, an influencer, and to have prestige? Andy Kassier concentrates on the supposedly fundamental relationship between wealth and happiness. By asking the seemingly banal question of what constitutes happiness, he problematizes various aspects of wealth, greed, beauty, gender, narcissistic behavior, the good life, and the subject’s need of a self-image in late modernity. #sunnysideup_exhibit

Andy Kassier’s online presence can very well be compared to that of fashion bloggers, influencers, and Kim Kardashian, who regularly splash around in the swimming pools of luxury hotels because hashtag #yolo, one can afford it or even gets paid for it. While Kim Kardashian and influencers are inconceivable without social media, however, because these channels are their sole raison d’être, there could be an Andy Kassier even without Instagram or Facebook, viz. only in an offline exhibition space.

@AndyKassier, workcation (orange), 2017

I discovered that it's productive to work in your holiday house as well.
So I name it workcation. The sun and fresh fruits always give me a lot of energy. I am so blessed that i have all these opportunities.

Kassier describes himself as a digital nomad: the artist as content creator who must constantly travel, if he is an Andy Kassier, in order to produce images for Instagram.

Andy Kassier plays along in social media, but he does not exactly play fair. In actual fact, he cheats like everyone else, only he overdoes it without having to blush. And that is exactly as it should be: the exaggeration of self-promotion and self-improvement, the sarcasm and the irony, the art of trolling, as one could also say—all are part of his concept. He wants to be seen as a concept artist. Descriptions such as Post-Internet Art or Net Art, however, are also apt. He does not mind categorizations.

@AndyKassier, the present, 2018

Meditate, visualize and create your own reality and the universe will make it all happen.
I live in the moment now, and you can too!

Andy Kassier, sunny side up, @eigenart_lab, April 8-21, 2018 (4/10) “I hate to spend money. Nothing is mine, but everything could be,” he says. “I don’t care about possession, I care about possibilities,” he explains. “What can you do without spending money?” Artist Andy Kassier shows what is possible without having a bundle of cash. In this way, he wants to criticize success and coldness in the new meritocracy.

@AndyKassier, just be yourself (tree-office), 2017

Taking risks and succeeding makes you a winning player. 
Never forget that you could have become a tree instead of a human, so be happy in every second of your life. Just be yourself ... #winner #goals #motivation #business #suit #fashion #coaching #millionaire #ceo #success #hustle #lovemyjob #nature #human #player #risk #youwilldie #happiness #happy #sun #fun #forest

Andy Kassier, sunny side up, @eigenart_lab, April 8-21, 2018 (3/10)

Andy Kassier has everything one needs to celebrate the art of the good life on social media: a smartphone and a mobile network. They allow him to always be at the right place at the right time and quickly pose on the hood of a BMW i8 or jump into the Mediterranean Sea in a suit by Brioni.

@AndyKassier, business as usual, 2017

Monday is always the best day of the week. I don’t get why people are head down sad on a Monday morning. You choose your life.
Stay motivated and love the way you make money!
I can’t tell you what I do exactly, but what is your profession?

Andy Kassier, sunny side up, @eigenart_lab, April 8-21, 2018 (2/10) “Success is only a smile away,” says artist Andy Kassier. His hair and his smile are on point; the shoes and the Lamborghini are gleaming. Andy Kassier is super rich. His looks are dazzling, he is well dressed and never leaves the house without his smile. And of course, he always happens to be just where the sun is shining.

Tomorrow, 8.4.2018, is the virtual opening of Andy Kassier’s online solo exhibition @eigenart_lab from 5-9 pm on instagram only. “sunny side up” is the first online solo-exhibition by @andykassier.
Authenticity, it is commonly assumed, is a strength of social media. On Instagram, everyone can be themselves. That is not the case, however, as every teenager in the United States knows all too well. Private life is staged; what cannot possibly be in real life becomes possible online. The artist Andy Kassier says: “The Porsche in the street is perhaps not mine. If I stand in front of it, take a selfie and post it on Instagram, then it is mine.”
Kassier slips into the role of the rich self-made man on social media and adapts, for his own purposes, the ways in which successful men present themselves on the Internet. “I don’t care about possession, I care about possibilities,” he explains. “What can you do without spending money?” By showing what is possible without having a wad of cash, Kassier seeks to criticize success and coldness in the new meritocracy. Just like artists like @amaliaulman, he thereby demonstrates: online, everybody is a liar.
