Shelter in This Shit Time @ LGLondon, Jul 8 – Sep 3

6 July 2016

The Shelter in This Shit Time group exhibition is on at LGLondon, opening July 8 and running September 3.

Featuring the work of Sam Austen, Marte Eknæs and Andrew Mealor, the press release discusses the type of encounter the viewer might expect between themselves and the works, as well as between the works themselves, using phrasing to describe the sensitivities of curating and certain “formal conjunctions, irreverent material relationships and the blurring of object, image and site” held together by the artists’ practices.

Each of the London-based artists have presented across European platforms. Eknæs has recently shown work with artist collective ÅYR, Mealor in Lock Up International‘s recent group show, Safety Deposit Box, and Austen in large playlist-based Recommended For You group exhibition that took place in London during 2015’s Art Licks Weekend.

See the LGLondon website for further details.**

Reboot Horizon @ Cell Project Space, Nov 13 – Jan 11

11 November 2014

London’s Cell Project Space is following up its renovations with a new group show, titled Reboot Horizon, running from November 13 to January 11.

The group exhibition brings together the works of three different artists exploring the “increasingly conflated physical spaces of retail, business, and leisure” that have evolved from nature through corporate branding.

Santiago Taccetti‘s raw mountain fragments come not from the natural but from the digital, serving as a sort of “information compression of geological form”. Similarly, Alice Khalilova‘s work marries the virtual with the digital with her blend of Eastern philosophy and streamline technology, where the work of the third participating artist, Marte Eknæs, re-presents fragments of architecture and product design co-opted for corporate profit.

See the Cell Project Space exhibition page for details. **
