AboutFollowing their micro-residency at The Pigeon Wing, Majed Aslam and Kate Liston present site specific gestures and topographies, using technology to manipulate notions of time and history.
Majed Aslam selectively bounces between architectural forms, digital images, video and design. Manoeuvring forms out of immediate recognition by simple interventions and touches, which force sometimes recognizable symbols and codes in and out of coherence. Fractures are left as remnants from Aslam's process of breaking down, re modeling and reconfiguring; subtle realities that evolve to be the lynch pin of his practice. The work is ultimately documentary and often ritualistically processing of its subject.
Kate Liston's work has moved into the realm of âoff-site specific', allowing the small epiphany moments that are grasped at when researching a locality from a distance to form the sole currency for meaning in the work. A refracted beam of light caught on google street view and a mysterious pyramidal structure in the nearby graveyard become cheap tokens for these moments of epiphany. For Fire Escape in the Sky Liston will also re-present the site specific work Fire Escape (2010), reconfigured for the new context of The Pigeon Wing's staircase.
