The Others/Top floor/6 and 8 Manor Road/London N16 5SA info@theothers.uk.com/ www.theothers.uk.com PRESS RELEASE: Mapping the others: New Contemporary Art Episode Two: Ghost in the Machine Private View: Friday 10 June 19:00-22:00 St Mary's Old Church, Stoke Newington 10 Juneà¢Ë†'18 June Selected 2D works transferring to The Others, Stoke Newington 20 Juneà¢Ë†'30 August In 1949, philosopher Gilbert Ryle coined the term ‘Ghost in the Machine' as a dismissive analogy for an entrenched concept: the idea that the human mind or soul exists within, yet remains separate from, the body. Ryle set out to ‘exorcise the ghost' but his vivid and unsettling phrase gave it new power to haunt. Episode Two: Ghost in the Machine starts a dialogue between corporeal and psychological perceptions of time and space. It showcases young contemporary art that engages, either formally or thematically, with dichotomies of material/immaterial, mind/body and sequence/instance. The exhibition will be home to photography, sculpture, installations, video and sound art as well as interventions in the space in the form of object manipulation, performance and live art. Featured artists: Aunstrup&Halsfund, Mihaela Brebenel, Eleanor Clare, Alberto Fiori, Freya Gable, Claire Haslam, Lydia Holmes, Helen Maher, Gareth Martin, Phillip Reeves, Robin Spalding, Alexandra Ungaru, Eleni Xintaras. The exhibition will take over St Mary's Old Church, a historic, multi-layered space which resonates with the artworks on display. Interventions in the church will aim to narrate and reflect on the evolving relationships between visitors and artists, the exhibition space and artworks. A selection of 2D works will move to a second venue, The Others Gallery, until 30 August to allow for further creative engagement with notions of psychology and corporeality through performance and salon events. This is the second episode in a series of exhibitions curated by The Others exploring the current landscape of young art. For press enquiries and photos please email : diana@theothers.uk.com
