Group exhibition SNOW CRASH is on at London’s Banner Repeater, opening May 2 and running to June 29.
Inspired by the 1992 science-fiction novel by Neal Stephenson of the same name and featuring Erica Scourti, Jesse Darling, Yuri Pattison, Tyler Coburn, Anna Barham, and Ami Clarke, the exhibition uses the text’s concerns with the “the erosion of subjectivity and what amounts to free will” via information technology as a jumping off point for exploring a contemporary culture ruled by big data, surveillance and marketing.
Including installation, video, performance and text-based work, the artists explore the “de-centred human subject through their production” across colocation services, data-mining, EMDR and more.
Read an interview with Yuri Pattison and visit the Facebook event page for details. **
Note: the exhibition period was extended to July 20.
