Golf + gulf rituals: Plastique Fantastique will bring to life Bi-SON-Oil-MAN at IMT, Apr 27

27 April 2017

The ‘Plastique Fantastique Welcome Bi SON Oil MAN’ performance at London’s IMT Gallery will take place on April 27.

David Burrows, Alex Marzeta, Simon O’Sullivan and Vanessa Page of collective Plastique Fantastique will perform a series of Drone Folk songs played in a loop throughout the evening. Over the course of the night, the group will follow a series of steps, using “chroma-key milk, oil, golf-clubs and projections” to bring fictional character Bi-SON-Oil-MAN to life. 

The performance is a new iteration from a previous one commissioned by Lucy A. Sames and Dane Sutherland for CHEMHEX EXTRACT exhibition at Aberdeen’s PVA Gallery.

Jennet Thomas in Conversation @ Block 336, Oct 12

11 October 2016

Jennet Thomas will be in conversation with Simon O’Sullivan and George Vasey at London’s Block 336 on October 12.

Thomas, who is currently exhibiting new film¬†The Unspeakable Freedom Device,¬†will be discussing the work with Vasey, a writer and curator at Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art and O’Sullivan, a theorist and artist who is part of collaborative group Plastique Fantastique and also a Professor of Art Theory and Practice in the Visual Cultures Department at Goldsmiths College.

Thomas’ new film creates a narrative that follows two women who “wrestle with the fascination and threat of techno-totalitarian supremacy personified by the all-powerful Blue Lady” and interconnects sculptural and painterly elements through a multi-media picture of an “absurd primitive-future world populated by a cast of uncannily familiar characters.”
