About

It's Always the Others Who Die  is a nihilistically hedonistic labyrinth of dark humour, antagonistic gestures and fragmented narratives. The title refers to the inscription on the grave of Marcel Duchamp, a provocative maker of meaning and meaninglessness. The three artists exhibiting are working individually and collectively, united by their anarchic, experimental processes and tendency to mess around with the world, usurping existing codes and connections with their own playful constructs- whether that be through subversive actions in public space (Louise Ashcroft) or by transforming a film by Duchamp himself (Nicholas Abrahams and Nicholas Pankhurst). Incorporating video projection, screens, found objects and images, the installations presented immerse the viewer, like a fun house at the fair; evoking traditional forms of mass entertainment, such as music halls, clowning and mesmerism. It's Always the Others Who Die is a collective funeral wake for the living; an uplifting apocalypse-party of absurd clutter.
