About

This exhibition is about the disjuncture of our times.

Worlds that exist parallel to each other.

A unique sense of the contemporary, lateral truths in inconsistent layers.

Somewhere between nostalgia and hope, lies our special temporality which we always seem to be attempting to escape. Apocalyptic visions of our future crowd contemporary theory while nostalgic historical futurisms substantially proliferate. A 90’s utopian naiveté and Cold War science fiction use our own failures to describe worlds that are simultaneously awake.

Historical re-enactment, appropriation, and gesture re-think our relationship with the past and our own identities. History and heritage become a refuge from daily trials. Brands act as standard, national symbols, and create legacy. From a Holloway pub to corporate advertisement, flags and standards from the Middle Age continue to conjure mass emotion.

Gaps and fissures, cracks and chasms, inconsistency and divergence. All seething and alive.
