I’m Feeling So Virtual I’m Violent @ HA HA Gallery, Oct 15

13 October 2016

The I’m Feeling So Virtual I’m Violent group exhibition is on at Southhampton’s HA HA Gallery, opening October 15 and running to January 14.

The event is a 2016 BAS8 Fringe Southampton Associate Commission and features new work by  artists Claire Boyd, Liv Fontaine, Neil Haas, Vanessa Omoregie, Sarah Roberts, and Rafal Zajko.

“The world is falling apart!”

The press release cries out for substance and collectivity in our over-consumption of information without ideas and confronts our exposed anxieties: “Empowerment is not based in big data, freedom cannot be sought through capitalist structures; the Silicon Valley gatekeeper is not your friend. Defriend now”.

The opening party will kick off with a ‘MYSTERY SECRET IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE’.

See the HA HA Gallery website for details.**

MONO5 @ Courtyard Theatre, Feb 3

2 February 2016

MONO5 is taking place at London’s Courtyard Theatre on the evening of February 3.

MONO is an artist initiative dedicated to moving image and hosting screenings set up by Rafal Zajko. For the upcoming event, and mono’s fifth, Zajko has invited 16 artists including Sophie Hoyle, Owen Thackeray, Zehra Arslan, Beatriz Olabarrieta and Shana Moulton.

MONO5 hopes to showcase the breadth of work made and approaches sought in the moving image field. Each work is always less than five minutes long, producing, perhaps, a coherent but scattered effect.
