Benefiting from its online presence, the group exhibition juxtaposes the ways artists portray mayhem and disorder in the face of rapidly improving computer generated technologies.

About

In the late 80s, a programmer who recently developed a revolutionary computer language learns that his days are numbered due to a terminal illness affecting his memory and speech. During this time he encounters a mysterious nightclub performer whose stage persona heavily relies on her ability to foretell the future. My Nights Are More Beautiful Than Your Days stems from Andrzej Żuławski’s namesake film, and adopts the chaotic language used between the two lovers whose capacity to communicate rapidly vanishes. Similar to the paradox the protagonist experiences—enduring the loss of his verbal faculties yet standing on the brink of revolutionizing communication technology—the exhibition articulates various aesthetics of chaos emerging from the discordance between the disarray of human experience and the precision of digital logic. Rigor shatters, bringing flaws, errors and frailties to the surface. Benefiting from its online presence, the group exhibition juxtaposes the ways artists portray mayhem and disorder in the face of rapidly improving computer generated technologies.

Artists: Jordan Bortner, Sean Capone, Katie Cercone, Emily Greenberg, Christopher K. Ho, Faith Holland, Jaehyun Kim and Jimin Song, Elizabeth Riley, Daniel Temkin, Allison Wade
