Co-curated with Rosie Reed Gold, /*con- is a show of 12 international artists, hosted at social enterprise Minutes Exchange, London.
Exchanging through osmosis, generating and sharing in a forever loop, a new symbiotic nexus. This organism floats innocuously on the current, yet s t r e t c h e s deep beneath the surface. An intangible tangle of rhizomatic connections, mutual exchange and soft membranes, each creature inextricably linked to another then another then
<<<<<<< complex networks of interconnecting lines, it is the space in-between >>>>>>>
An exhibition of international artists, /*con- explores the potentials of art making as a tool for questioning existing societal structures and methods of being.
This show examines the function of systems in both the natural and man-made world, and offers alternatives based upon interconnectivity.
How might we utilise the ecosystems and methods of survival in nature so frequently mimicked by algorithms and computation to build alternative systems of being and perceiving the world which surrounds us?
What role can temporal and spatial explorations play in allowing us to reexamine existing ideologies and ask questions around concatenation?
Might data streams and hacking function as line of inquiry into this discussion?
Hosted by Minutes Exchange, a social enterprise rethinking societal and financial structures,
/*con- is underpinned by a desire to deconstruct typical methods of interaction, re-examine /*con-versation and pursue a new kind of hermeneutics.
