As a whole exhibition casts light on the multiple registers of meaning digital artefacts can operate within (from cinema to the museum) and questions the ontological status of these ‘things’ that are set free from the burden of words such as ‘history’ and ‘originality’.


The Swiss Church in London will present a solo show of London-based, Irish artist Patrick Hough, as part of their Partnership with Goldsmiths University of London. The exhibition Hierophanies takes as its departure the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. During the process of Reformation, objects belonging to the church were stripped of their holy status, inducing a wave of iconoclasm, or the destruction of religious imagery. Patrick Hough’s exhibition reflects on the relationship between archaeology, technology and the reanimating power of digital cinema, in the context of contemporary iconoclasm – particularly the recent destruction of cultural and religious heritage throughout Syria and Iraq.
