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)’.
