Uwudluk(GRRReat!!!)in Javascript

Jack Fisher @ Public Exhibitions, Jun 29 – Aug 6

27 June 2016

Leeds-based artist Jack Fisher is orchestrating a body of work called Uwudluk(GRRReat!!!)in Javascript at London’s Public Exhibitionsopening June 29 and running to August 26.  

In the”collection of stuff made by people open to the public”, is a website called weareone.computer, where someone counts out loud endlessly, to infinity, a series of online salon-style live ‘unreleased’ talks streamed to Facebook and enacted by fictional characters. The FB event promises it’s from a list of “renowned public speakers”, an invited audience from around the world via website Fiverr, and an audio-guide by Fisher around the exhibitions.

The press release is on a Google doc, and there is a drawing in html code on the FB invite. Recent School of the Damned graduate, Fisher generates work that belies its awareness of himself as user, producer, protagonist, and ‘artist’.

French artist Eloïse Bonneviot will also be re-presenting her performance piece, ‘Thinking Like a Mountain – Friend & Foe‘ on July 21, which she earlier presented at London’s Green Ray space.

It will be interesting to see how the culmination of these things manifests in a physical space.

See the Public Exhibitions website for more details.**
