Anne de Boer is presenting two projects, The Ripped Uk power plug at London’s Goldsmithsgallery and Two Admirable Uncles Communicating to the Beat online at Channel Normal, opening April 14 and running to April 28.
The London-based artist responsible for ongoing project The Mycological Twist with Eloïse Bonneviot, will launch new works constructed through databases and content generators that offer inspiration in uninspired situations. They’ll materialise in a sculptural installation at Goldsmiths that will also host several randomly composed songs to feature during the The Ripped Uk power plug exhibition private view.
Meanwhile, Two Admirable Uncles Communicating to the Beat will display the content being gathered by a bot, the images harvested for the aforementioned installation, as part of online exhibition space Channel Normal’s ECKS-EN-IS series.
Bringing the two projects together are the press releases for the respective shows, featuring two mildly non-sensical short stories written through a plot-generator and sharing a character named after, unsurprisingly, Anne him (or, as per the narratives, her-) self: “I love you and I want Creation.”
