We’re Having a Great Time :) @ ROCKELMANN &, Jul 29 – Sep 3

26 July 2016

The We’re having a great time 🙂 group exhibition is on at Berlin’s ROCKELMANN &, opening July 29 running through September 3.

The exhibition kicks off the start of the gallery’s new Summer CAMP Project, a month-long curatorial program that offers emerging artists the opportunity to develop and produce their own show. Its inauguration is with London- and Berlin-based collective ::MK-DOS::, comprised of Mattia Giussani and Kat Rickard, and features work from six London-based artists.

Five new media works will be presented by Eva Papamargariti, Andrea Williamson, along with performances by Marija Bozinovska-Jones and duo Lea Collet and Marios Stamatis.

The works conceptually express the translation of life from “URL to IRL” by producing a collection of soft sculptures, performances, video and laser projections, and mixed media installations. The artists have “sought to re-appropriate and expose just how all of the time spent URL is affecting us IRL”.

See the ROCKELMANN & website for details.**

Eloïse Bonneviot @ Greenray, Apr 29

29 April 2016

Eloïse Bonneviot is presenting her O Super (hu/wo-) man performance at London’s Green Ray, opening April 29.

As part of a series curated by Green Ray c0-founder Gabriela Acha, Bonneviot’s show is the first of several that include another one by the London-based artist on May 16, as well as events, installations and performances by Marija Bozinovska-JonesJoey Holder and Janina Lange.

The performance is introduced with an excerpt of lyrics from the softly sardonic song ‘Big Science‘ by artist Laurie Anderson (“Big Science./ Hallelujah.”) and a description that extrapolates on the effects of Big Data and automation on the body, language, abstraction and the paradoxical relationship between culture, nature and technology: “What is progress after all?”

Circuits in the Flesh @ ASC gallery, Feb 26

25 February 2016

Andrew Sunderland, Alexis Milne and MBJ Wetware are performing Circuits in the Flesh at London’s ASC gallery on February 26.

The event follows the opening of Sunderland’s Muscle Memory exhibition, running January 18 to March 18, where her uses sculpture, print and sound to explore the production and reproduction of desire in aesthetic strategies of “replication and appropriation”.

Hence, the artists put this viral mutation and proliferation of sorts into practice across their combined practices collectively ‘mutating’ the exhibition in realtime and “inserting traces of their identity, voices, and bodies into the exhibitions feedback loop”.

See the FB event page for details.**

MBJ Wetware + J.G. Biberkopf @ CTM, Feb 2

1 February 2016

Marija Bozinovska Jones aka MBJ Wetware and producer J.G. Biberkopf are collaborating for a  new performance, ‘GAD Technologies’ for the Zones I programme of CTM 2016 at Berlin’s Berghain on February 2.

“Gad” means to move around in a frivolous and random manner, as well as being an acronym for general anxiety disorder.

‘GAD Technologies’, meanwhile, performs feelings of liquidity, loss, immateriality, anxiety and floating “between two currents of freedom and control”. Among the two producers, both of whom adopt either a hybrid embodiment or avatar position in relation to their work, the performance will ask of the virtual realm what happens when gender, nationality and position become both at once symbolic and arbitrary.

MBJ Wetware and J.G. Biberkopf start off the evening’s performances at the Berghain site, and are followed by three other artists, including Visionist and Thug Entrancer who also consider technology’s expansive and anxious structure.

See the CTM website for details, as well as aqnb‘s list of recommendations. **

10 September 2014

London’s Hotel Elephant is hosting the Test Signal group exhibition this month, running at their project space from September 11 to 13.

The group show, which brings together multiple disciplines through audiovisual works, live performances, installations, biosensors and robotics, features 17 artists recently graduated from Goldsmiths Computational Arts MA and MFA courses exploring the borders of computational art and modern human relationships with the digital.

While Ersin Han Ersin‘s ‘Aeolus (Wind)‘ investigates human motion and and its interaction with invisible natural forces such as the wind, Giampaolo Trojani’s ‘2+ | Mona Lisa‘ presents a “physical portrayal of this universe” through the famous figure, and Marija Bozinovska Jones‘s ‘hyperlocal + speculative‘ explores the remembering and misremembering of history through the ‘Skopje 2014’ redevelopment project.

See the Test Signal website for details. **
