An evening of transgression art on the walls, Doomed Gallery 65/67 Ridley Road, E8 2NP,
From 6 to 9pm
Mnemonic City is exploring the idea of city as a receptacle, taking inspiration from Plato's Myth of the Cave. The allegory explores the relation of humankind with their environment, questioning what is real and what appearance is. The theme explores notion of identity, fragmentation and the idea of shadow.
From the concept of the city, Magma moves to the concept of the cave and in doing so triggers a descent into the subterranean space of our latent mind. Magma's own artistic evolution however defies Plato's argument, since the work at hand affords the audience a form of knowledge through sensation rather than through the exposition of form as an idea to be unravelled by the intellect.
This opening gathers the works of the Magma collective and contributors:
Miguel Guzman, Azhara Ubera, Yuri Pirondi, Pascal Ancel Bartholdi, Ines Von Bonhorst Jill Rock, Jaime Valtierra, Thomas Cyhitski, Rupert Jager, Max Max, Rebbeca Cartwrigth, Eve Tenebaun
