Hot Rock is a group show in a space converted specifically to bring together the disparate practices of seven international artists.
From the uncertain vantage point of the first decade of the 21st Century many artists who matured from the apparent security of the 1990s seek and assemble fragments of culture that will provide tools to scrutinise the world. In Hot Rock these fragments come together as raw matter and disposable consumer products provoking projections for the future and new methods for deciphering the world as it is today. Primitivism and slacker culture entwine with the slick production of mass markets while the economy of information and image are questioned in an age of rampant urbanism and civic sprawl.
