Hunter/ Gatherer: Last position received
Unit 6, Bellenden Road, SE15 4RF
Friday 29th July 2011
18.30 - 21.00
Floating on a barren sheet of ice, a temporary island for their existence, Hunter/ Gatherer deliberate their future fate. Banished from a society of misfortune once known, trapped in a white-out disillusion, their only goal is survival. Is existence futile?
For one night only, The Rupture Series will broadcast Hunter/Gatherer's Last Position Received, an intercepted radio transmission telling the fictional story of the deep sea soul trawler Artifishal and its hardy crew (Hunter/Gatherer) who embark upon an expedition from the northern port town of Hull, UK. The transmission recounts their search for the anti arctic, the point of departure of all known souls where a being will be able gain true spiritual enlightenment.
The intercepted transmission sees the two lead characters, the captain (Hunter) and his mutinous mate (Gatherer), trapped in a conflicting duality as the ship they began their journey on is sinking from its solidified state within pack ice, into the open ocean.
For this event, the artists will present a surround sound installation of the transmission accompanied by theatrical assemblage sculpture. To coincide with the live gallery broadcast, the interception will be transmitted to Resonance FM, enabling the unbeknown subjects to be heard beyond the confinements of the exhibition.
Hunter/ Gatherer is a collaboration between artists Alexander Wilson and Daniel Pickles. Last Position Received is the inaugural event of The Rupture Series, a programme of events and exhibitions launching in July 2011. For more information please visitwww.theruptureseries.com.
Last Position Received will be broadcast at Arcadia Missa on Friday 29th July at 7pm followed by a second broadcast at 8pm as part of the South London Art Map Last Fridays. At 8pm on the same day, the transmission will be intercepted by Resonance 104.4 FM.
