i8i is presenting the exhibition Infinite Scroll at Trauma Bar und Kino, Berlin, curated by Madalina Stanescu and running September 17 to October 17, with opening night performances on the evenings of September 17 and 18, 2021.

Through sound, sculpture and live actions, the collective — formed online during COVID-19 and featuring artists including DÆMON, Ben Sang, Riccardo d’Avola-Corte, FITNESSS and more — evokes conspiracy, cybernetic imaginaries and spirituality for their first offline event in what they dub “General Accepted Reality.” As stated in the press release: “Recent events have caused reality to seize. Time begins to loop indefinitely. A neo archeological site catalogues events occurring within this temporal rift.”

Falconer, a group show by 011668, Riccardo D’Avola-Corte, Ben Sang, and FITNESSS, was on at Bonneville Speedway, Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah, on January 23.

With an anthropomorphic sculpture hunched among foggy salt flats, this figure made of consumer debris evokes mystic imaginaries that persist in our technological age. As alluded to in the exhibition text, the work draws analogues between “the looking glass, seer stone, oracle’s hood, 12MP 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor, and pixel field window.”**
