INFO

  • I cannot reconcile myself with the idea of time. I cannot control it, slow it down or speed it up – and yet, I try. My interest in duration and consciousness stems from a failure to regain lost and unredeemable time and my process of interacting with images takes on diverse forms in an attempt to trap the uncontainable. The function of my work should not be to attempt to represent my preoccupations but to better produce the feeling that there is something unpresentable. This is reflected in various works, not only with the insatiable desire to capture and contain time, but also by creating impossible scenes, re-appropriating cinema or presenting found objects as readymades divested of their original intention to create ambiguity and self-referential failures to communicate.

New Weapons is an exploration of the proliferation of the networked image in an online environment, and the idea that an image can be in many places simultaneously: on your smartphone and your laptop, in Europe and Asia, on Google and Facebook. In short that there is no original, only versions. New Weapons is the first exhibition worldwide to fully embrace the photographic concept of the network by existing in multiple versions in multiple locations.

This collective is operating in terrain that understands the visual image in philosophical terms – multi-dimensional, process-driven and defragmented – in short, beyond a linear rhetoric of content, measurement and description. These artists’ work experiments with sound, video, data feeds and sculpture, which collectively indicate the complex terrain of the visual image which they are investigating.

New Weapons is a collaboration between Blitz and Central Saint Martins University of the Arts London.
