Rob Lye

Screening (III) @ ASC Gallery, Feb 28

27 February 2014

The last in a succession of events supporting the second installment of ongoing project and group exhibition Notes on An Autobiography, ending March 8, Screening (III) is happening at ASC Gallery on February 28.

Group show collaborator Rebecca Lennon‘s ‘You, My Amputated You (connections, after angus)’ is still one of the greatest expressions of ‘call center angst’ we’ve come across, which makes the prospect of a screening with Lennon, along with Chooc Ly Tan, Peter Sant, Beth Collar, Rob Lye, Tessa Power and Nicholas Brookes, all the more exciting. The event plays supplement to the “autonomous trajectories” of artists reacting to the brief of the Lye-led exhibition as a whole.

‘Notes on an Autobiography’ @ ASC Gallery Jan 15-Mar 8

16 January 2014

London’s ASC Gallery presents group exhibition Notes on an Autobiography, running January 15 to March 8.

Instigated by Rob Lye in 2012 -over one hour, on one night, at Limoncello -the ongoing project reaches its second phase at ASC with correlative audio works available online, a publication and two events drawing on aspects of the “static art exhibition”. Featuring Lye’s work, as well as that of Rebecca Lennon, Ben Newton, Siôn Parkinson, Tamsin Snow & Sarah Tynan, the event functions within a “a series of autonomous trajectories” in an effort to “to negate, reconsider, reassemble its own narrative and use the continuance of the project as a reactive curatorial anchor”.

You can listen to each artists’ recording online here. There Siôn Parkinson reimagines 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition classic ‘Meet Me in St. Louis, Louis’ with ‘I’ll be hard on you, Louis’ and Rebecca Lennon offers an equal parts funny and distressing expression of contemporary ‘call center angst’ in ‘You, My Amputated You (connections, after angus)’.
