Croydon’s Turf Projects will host group show Get Fit, opening March 4 and running April 16.
Formally ‘Workout World’ before the space became an art space, Turf Projects was once walled in mirrors and host to a showcase of exercise machines and fitness gear. The artists in Get Fit, which already has its own website, will look at how art can gather distance and abstraction from the gym world, imitating memberships, workout atmospheres, self-esteem, voyeurism, supplements and physical health-based public interactions.
Artists showing include Adham Faramawy, Claire Davies, Aoife Mullan, and David John Scarborough and Olivia Domingos (who are co-curators of the show), with music by James Murphy x IBM, who in 2014 made a track using data from U.S open tennis matches.
