Alice Khalilova launch, Apr 15

15 April 2016

The exhibition, curated by Faron Ray and Alice Khalilova is launching online on April 15.

The theme of the show comes in a short text describing the commercial clutter of everyday life, but optimised. It reads like a desktop of Photoshopped image searches materialised in branded fantasy objects, like gold WKD alcopops and “fluorescent yellow V20 filled with the iridescent bodies of a dozen blue bottle flies”. Or perhaps its a metaphor for the promise of a future perpetually unrealised: “Holed up in an abandoned night club, fifteen survivors listen to salvaged EDM club mixes through a failing sound system.”

The artists set to feature include the above-mentioned organisers, as well as Iain Ball, Yorkson, Dorota Gaweda and Egle Kulbokaite, Hannah Le Feuvre, and Natasha Lall among others, some of whom took part in independent, artist-run publication Low Impact: ‘Shallow Waters’ last year.

The online presentation is managed by Robin Buckley in charge of sound, and Calum Gunn doing web development, while other the artists involved are Finnian McKenna, Cedric Ng, Valinia Svoronou, Owen ThackerayBora Akinciturk, and Petr Davydtchenko.

Reboot Horizon @ Cell Project Space, Nov 13 – Jan 11

11 November 2014

London’s Cell Project Space is following up its renovations with a new group show, titled Reboot Horizon, running from November 13 to January 11.

The group exhibition brings together the works of three different artists exploring the “increasingly conflated physical spaces of retail, business, and leisure” that have evolved from nature through corporate branding.

Santiago Taccetti‘s raw mountain fragments come not from the natural but from the digital, serving as a sort of “information compression of geological form”. Similarly, Alice Khalilova‘s work marries the virtual with the digital with her blend of Eastern philosophy and streamline technology, where the work of the third participating artist, Marte Eknæs, re-presents fragments of architecture and product design co-opted for corporate profit.

See the Cell Project Space exhibition page for details. **
