You Drive, I'll Detonate
An exhibition by Suzie Zabrowska aka Susan Supercharged. Enter into an environment which explores symbols, documents, portals and psycho geography through the collaging of painting, photography and graphics. Examining the flexibility of space and time, and isolation, the journey starts from an ancient invitation from NASA, to a walk through a dystopic near-future Hackney Wick; seeking beauty and direction and making sense of the order from disorder, and historical coincidences. The moment when everything familiar becomes unfamiliar.
Susan Supercharged developed from a real life trauma, in which it became absolutely essential to find super human strength. “I had no interest whatsoever in comics, but I was compelled by the mythology, marks, the weight and thrust of the lines. I began experimenting with these forms, breaking them down to see if I could steal the power of the lines and manipulate them. To see if in its most abstract state, that super power would exist. These became the Explosion Series, ‘The Life Codes’, where the Burroughs’s method of repeated images become laden with meaning, and geometric motifs occur and signpost the next portal, some created on purpose, and some occurring spontaneously to the viewer.
