Process, time + place in the disrupted narratives of *bang! at Athens’ Daily Lazy Projects, Apr 4 – May 14

3 April 2017

The *bang! group exhibition is on at Athens’ Daily Lazy Projects, opening April 4 and running to May 14.

The show will feature work by Greek and Cypriot artists Lito Kattou, Irini Miga, Tula Plumi and Natalie Yiaxi and explores “narrative performativity in the relationship of objects to physical space” through a sculptural installation.

The event marks the opening of the collective and independent art blog Daily Lazy‘s new space in Athens, and is the first project of a two-year series of exhibitions to come. The opening night will feature performance ‘Saliva: Frenzied Chirping’ by artist Lukas Hofmann, and the after-party at Efimerida will feature DJ Yorgia Karidi.

The project brings work together that in some way tampers with our idea of process, time and space, where beginning and end-points are put into question and narratives are disrupted.

See the Daily Lazy website for more details.**

Robin Mackay @ Banner Repeater, Mar 19

19 March 2014

Philosopher and Urbanomic director Robin Mackay is presenting a talk, The Idiots Have Won: From the Pre-Cambrian to the Post-Facebook, along with a screening of Matthew Noel-Tod‘s ‘Bang!‘ (2012) at London’s Banner Repeater on March 19.

Mackay approaches the film as a materialist history mapping the line of human development across from Plato to the 2011 London riots in a what has devolved from “an organic society to the surreal subsumption of capital”.

‘Bang!’ navigates “internet memes, advice dogs and infantilised avatars” to illustrate, according to Mackay, “the unfinished story of communism for a world that’s gone to the dogs”.

Noel-Tod’s ‘A Season in Hell 3D‘ is also showing in the space until April 6.
