Pauline Batista + Madeleine Stack explore what falls between the cracks in Fatal Softness at Koppel Project, Nov 16 – Jan 6

14 November 2017

Pauline Batista and Madeleine Stack present two person exhibition Fatal Softness at London’s Koppel Project opening November 16 and running to January 6.

The show devotes its time and focus to excavation as it relates to self, freedom, patterns, mining, borders and “a shared language of opacity and incoherence” among other modes of travel as it relates to the body and flow.

Asking “who decides what information is filtered, which memories are stored and how the circulation of bodies and ideas flows,” the show will dig between the lines and cracks to find what falls between, and paying close attention to the relationship between technology and intimacy.

Something forever slipping between your fingers + the imaginary of individuality in How are you still clean at ICA, May 25

24 May 2017

The How are you still clean evening of poetic readings and live performances at London’s ICA will take place on May 25.

Curated by ICA Student Forum members Madeleine Stack, Giada Marson and Marcel Darienzo, the evening will feature Jay Bernard, Tai Shani, Jesse Darling, Mariana Echeverri + Madeleine Stack, Sophie Robinson and Taylor le Melle.

An evening that asks “how does language penetrate? How are we made dirty? Do we wish to be clean?” the participants will explore contagion and the fear of infiltration against the backdrop of an ‘imaginary of individuality’ that we are whole, stand alone beings, without slippage or leak. Focusing on the moments that are constantly “slipping between your fingers,” the curators have put together a night that aims to expose, transmit and permeate through boundaries.

The opening night will also host performances by Harry Bix, Sarah Boulton and Soohyun Choi. There will be an evening of screenings on October 29, featuring ‘Pennie’ by Lola Clavo, ‘Pix’ by Antonio da Silva, ‘If You Did Not Exist’ by Theo Turpin, ‘Prosopagnosia’ by Katie Hare.

Rhythm and Disappointment launch @ Chalton Gallery, Jul 31

29 July 2016

East Anglia Records is launching a new compilation, Rhythm and Disappointment at London’s Chalton Gallery on July 31.

The project, revolving around the notion of “wanting more and giving up”, has since put on a number of other events and released a handful of compilations, including one in parallel with the NO SCREENING performance at London’s ICA in collaboration with with artist Cristine Brache and SOUNDS LIKE.

SALT. Noli Mi Tangere launch @ SLG, Mar 11

9 March 2016

SALT. is launching and celebrating its eighth issue, ‘Noli Me Tangere’ at London’s South London Gallery on March 11.

How can you touch something by not touching it? Freud’s aphorism, “touch is the first act of possession” hovers over the issue like a threat, says the event’s text.

‘Noli Me Tangere’ (‘Touch Me Not’ in Latin) aims to overthrow the privileging of the visual in favour of the sensorial: “It is an inherently feminist art practice to muddy the translation between the see-able and the say-able.”

There will be readings, performances and a live screening on the evening from Sarah Boulton, Bronte Dow, George Nesbitt and Holly White, and some of the contributors of the issue include Madeleine Stack, Rozsa Farkas, Samara Scott, Jennifer Boyd, Lauren Goddard, Marina Xenofontos, whose video is below, and Hannah Regel, Thea Smith, Jala Wahid – three of the editors of the London-based magazine.

See the South London Gallery event page for more details.**
