The Chronovisor: Archive group exhibition is running at London’s South Kiosk, opening May 15 to June 20.
Featuring Mirko Smerdel, Rowena Harris, Verity Birt, Patrick Hough, Cathy Haynes and Johann Arens, the exhibition follows themes of time and artifice in relation to the chronovisor.
It’s a viewing machine with a lens that traverses space and time, presenting a conglomerate of problematic images spanning some of history’s most iconic moments, allegedly created by a Venetian Roman Catholic priest in the 1960s.
Looking to obscure historical context and presenting these images in new and troubling light, there’ll be evocative sculptural pieces and Google street view-fed images among others.
See the South Kiosk website for details. **
