What comes after resistance? Acoustic Mirrors at Diaspore, Mar 29 – Apr 30

28 March 2017

The Acoustic Mirrors group exhibition is on at London’s Diaspore, opening March 29 and running to April 30.

Curated by Lou-Atessa Marcellin and Edward Hill of Friche, the show includes contributions from A—Z, Lucie Beauvert, Chroma Yoga, Friche, Rebecca Glover, Louis Henderson, Edward Hill, Lou-Atessa Marcellin, Tom McCaughan, Inês Neto dos Santos, Yuri Pattison, Rachel Pimm, The Quorum, The Restart Project, RCA School Group, Superlative TV, Chooc Ly Tan, Konstantinos Trichas, Theo Turpin and The Waggle Dancers.

The press release leaves little to be revealed, but includes fragmentary sentences that ask us to piece together and create relations between “generating flows of images no one has the stomach to digest” and “a half asleep flower [who] wakes up in a rage and throws her smartphone at the face of her inquisitor.” Ending in “Resistance is the first move, listening is the strategy, conversation comes next?” we can expect a program dedicated to fostering community and dialogue, and its place within finding answers.

Diaspore is project space commited to ideas of “ecology(ies), ecosystems and their communities” and is led by artists, scientists, chefs and other community groups, and is open to “all who wish to get involved.”

Citizen @ Chisenhale Dance, Mar 5

4 March 2016

An “exploded film screening” called Citizen is happening at London’s Chisenhale Dance on March 5.

As the latest instalment of the bi-monthly series Please Stand By, this film, performance, and sound event is curated by Taylor Le Melle and features work by the likes of Sondra PerryEoghan RyanBenito Mayor Vallejo and Imran Perretta.

The event is set to explore how “realities are constructed within a mediatised society”, through presentations by artists placing their work at the blurry intersection between fiction and reality. Time, linearity and simultaneity are all themes to be addressed in an evening that interrogates cinema and theatre as a narrative tool, and also features work by James Clarke, Rebecca Glover, Calvin Laing, Stephanie MannLeonor Serrano Rivas and Naufus Ramirez-Figueroa.

See the Please Standby website for details.**
