In Space no one can hear… @ Galleria Giovanni Bonelli‎, Apr 5 – May 17

5 April 2016

The In Space No One Can Hear You Laugh group show is on at Milan’s Galleria Giovanni Bonelli, opening April 5 and running May 17.

Featuring the likes of Julius von Bismark —who will show work at this year’s Moscow International Biennale for Young Art —artist and curator Elise Lammer and artist Tyra Tingleff the show will display artworks that create their own worlds, their own economies and self-fulfilling systems as a way to think about alternative ways of being.

Taking science fiction as a parallel model, In Space No One Can Hear You Laugh deals with “things not yet to come, with images charged with a state of future potential or spaces infused with a radical temporality”, and puts us “in touch with the ability to imagine, and with the imaginary’s capacity to build new worlds.”

The show is curated by Clarissa Tempestini.

Pencil/Line/Eraser @ Carroll/Fletcher, Jul 31 – Sep 13

30 July 2014

Carroll/Fletcher brings a new group show titled Pencil / Line/ Eraser and centered around “expanded drawing” to its London space from July 31 to September 13.

The exhibition lifts its title from a 2008 video project by the same name created by Paul Harrison and John Wood, in which a hand draws a line while another erases it, embodying something of the process around which the exhibition is based.

The group show features works by 12 different artists and artist groups, including those of Evan Roth, whose visualisation and archival of digital culture is rendered in ‘Forgetting Spring’, a sculpture composed out of a 42-meter print of four months-worth of Internet browsing.

Joining Roth in Pencil / Line / Eraser are AKassen and their Flatten image series, Julius von Bismarck & Benjamin Maus and the ‘Perpetual Storytelling Apparatus’ drawing machine, and Christine Sun Kim, who, though deaf since birth, explores the materiality of sound through painting, drawing and performance.

See the Carroll/Fletcher exhibition page for details. **
