Nicholas O’Brien presents solo exhibition The Trolley at Amsterdam’s LIMA opening January 17 and running to February 28.
The Trolley is the third exhibition of Cultural Matter; a series of events and shows which digital arts, its presentation and preservation, with other artists including Harm van den Dorpel, Constant Dullaart and Olia Lialina.
As described by O’Brien, the exhibition is an ‘essay game artwork’ and “revolves around the progressive disappearance of a mode of public transport in the urban landscape.” As the viewer plays, they are confronted with choices of what to dismantle and continue, reflecting on their role in the outcome.
The artist will be discussing his installation and the politics of a changing public space and infrastructure with Isabelle Arvers on January 17 and Filippo Lorenzin on February 19.
