A text book written by a dog + abuse of power in Benjamin Edwin Slinger’s ‘From the Island of Truffles…’ at HA HA Gallery, Aug 11

9 August 2017

Benjamin Edwin Slinger is presenting the ‘From the Island of Truffles to the Kingdom of Misunderstandings’ performance at Southhampton’s HA HA Gallery on August 11.

The work will take the form of a re-enactment of a “selective view of history through falsified historical documents, conflation of opposing artefacts,” which he describes as “a text book written by a dog that just chewed up the sofa.”

The work continues with the themes in his last show at London’s LARA, which explored the world of pranks and ‘abuse of power’ with physical material.

I’m Feeling So Virtual I’m Violent @ HA HA Gallery, Oct 15

13 October 2016

The I’m Feeling So Virtual I’m Violent group exhibition is on at Southhampton’s HA HA Gallery, opening October 15 and running to January 14.

The event is a 2016 BAS8 Fringe Southampton Associate Commission and features new work by  artists Claire Boyd, Liv Fontaine, Neil Haas, Vanessa Omoregie, Sarah Roberts, and Rafal Zajko.

“The world is falling apart!”

The press release cries out for substance and collectivity in our over-consumption of information without ideas and confronts our exposed anxieties: “Empowerment is not based in big data, freedom cannot be sought through capitalist structures; the Silicon Valley gatekeeper is not your friend. Defriend now”.

The opening party will kick off with a ‘MYSTERY SECRET IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE’.

See the HA HA Gallery website for details.**
