Gymnasium is delighted to announce that New Delhi-based artists Raqs Media Collective will be producing an exhibition in the run up to a new public work in the city.

About

In the run up to the opening of a new public work later in the year, Raqs are presenting selected past works, alongside a new series of prints.

“Happen-Stances” is a suite of prints based on Raqs Media Collective’s study of ‘An Investigation of The Laws of Thought’ a book by the nineteenth century Lincoln-born mathematician George Boole. Boole pioneered the concept of ‘logic gates’ using category constellations such as ‘yes’, ‘no’ and ‘perhaps’ that went on to become the foundations of ‘Boolean Logic’ in computer programming. In Happen-Stances, Raqs weaves statements about wealth, possibility, ethics and abundance out of the texture of Boole’s formulations, through the operations of chance. These are transformed into image-text objects that could be aids to thinking, or simply enjoyed as anticipations of word-sculptures in print form.

Project Space Plus, The University of Lincoln, Brayford Pool, LN6 7TS.

Open 13 April – 7 May,  Mon – Saturday 10am – 4pm. Free entry.
