Presented by cura, digital Interventions is a new art platform for the underrepresented, that offers opportunities to LBGTQ+ and Female artists from across the UK to reveal their practice to a spectating audience for 6 weeks. Digital Intervention shall utilise the cinema, supplementing movie trailers in the need to support artists in reaching a wider audience.
We will showcase selected digital art works, ranging from 0:30 – 2:00m. Cura exhibitors Joe Moss & Jane Davies will present ‘An Heart’, a collaborative installation paying homage to the industrial histories of decorative-arts, envisaging its non-hierarchical future with digital and fine-art practices.
Moss & Davies will create a curatorial structure as they attempt to manoeuvre between the existing modelling spaces of memory, CAD softwares, the 3D printing bed and the physical studio. Moss & Davies offer the oppor tunity to look towards the utopic collaborative possibilities of these mediums and how their future may be valued beyond their ability to harvest a price in units.
Digital Intervention exhibitor Joshua Collings’ practice concerns performance and identity politics within shifting queer metropolitan and nightlife settings, scrutinising the purpose of the contemporary stage and re-addressing relations between performer and audience
Presenting a trailer of ‘Magpie’, Collings vocalises a crucial need to rupture boundaries between subjects and architectures relative to space and order. Collings treats sets as laboratories where old worlds are scrutinised and ‘dreamwork’ actioned; placing tables and chairs salvaged from gay bars in sites such as Brompton Cemetery Chapel, Collings explores the re-assembly/ re-instating fictional narrative.
Collings use of objects may propose a queer(ed) ‘space’,functioning as a ‘counter-architecture’ by appropriating, subverting and/or mirroring the orders of everyday life in liberatory spirit.
The exhibition will be up for 6 weeks from the 26th March.
