About

Considering both execution and subject, the exhibition is being construed as a moment of discontinuity. Geologically the rift is a fault in the continuity of the earth. In language this crack deepens when considering the irreconcilable passage from experience into speech; a further split happens between belief in the divine and the representation of this. The philosopher Giorgio Agamben described history itself as a hiatus, a downward slope we fall into. 

Two centres of the world, one pointing to religion and the other to human and geological origins, are deflated in the space. Natural forces are left to speak what is unutterable. The rift happens in nature again and again the history of humankind falls into it. The viewer is given the chance to descend within its limits. As must be the case, the landing place is unknown. 

Alongside the exhibition of prints and sculpture is a new publication with contributions by Giulia Damiani and José da Silva. 

Theodore Ereira-Guyer is a London and Lisbon-based multidisciplinary artist. He completed his MA at the Royal College of Art in 2014, currently he is a PhD researcher at Colégio das Artes in Portugal and is a Print Tutor at the Art Academy, London.
