“Copper cables clogged like fatty arteries”: Splintered Binary opens at Gossamer Fog, Mar 31 – Apr 30

30 March 2017

The Splintered Binary group exhibition at London’s Gossamer Fog opens March 31 and is running to April 30. The opening features as part of South London Art Map’s monthly ‘Last Fridays’ and includes work by Anne de Boer, Elliot Dodd, Henry Driver, Gibson/Martelli, Will Kendrick, Charley Peters and Caspar Sawyer.

The show’s title, Splintered Binary, is an oxymoron that points to a state of degraded data that is impossible to exist. As the show boots up it will go in search of and attempt to locate the corrupted essence of data and the realm where it may exist. See the press release below for more detail.

Feeling Safer @ IMT Gallery, Jun 2 – Jul 10

1 June 2016

The Feeling Safer group exhibition is on at London’s IMT Gallery opening June 2 and running July 10.

The press release, written from the perspective of an unknown character called Kim describes feeling anxious about the private nature of small galleries like IMT, hidden behind honey suckle and “halfway between the Metropolis strip club and the Museum of Childhood”. It describes a fear towards the way artists deal with the feelings around the end of the world, “when the grid is cut off” via Valerie Solanas’ ‘S.C.U.M. (Society for Cutting Up Men)’ manifesto —which is quoted in the text:

“…Lacking faith in their ability to change anything, resigned to the status quo, they [artists] have to see beauty in turds.”

Helping the protagonist in the press release ‘feel safer’ in the IMT space are artists David Burrows, Joey Holder, Elliot Dodd, Verity Birt, Luke McCreadie and Maggie Roberts (as orphan Drift, a group Roberts co-founded that remix visuals and audio from the 90s.).

On the opening night artist group AAS will present performance, Farming The Young / On The Mirrors Of Yukon, described as “a fractal palimpsest of data for future generations”.
