About

Ivan Puig and Andrés Padilla Domene (Los Ferronautas) built their striking silver road-rail SEFT-1 vehicle to explore the abandoned passenger railways of Mexico and Ecuador, capturing their journeys in videos, photographs and collected objects. In their first London exhibition, commissioned by The Arts Catalyst and presented in partnership with Furtherfield, the artists explore how the ideology of progress is imprinted onto historic landscapes and reflect on the two poles of the social experience of technology - use and obsolescence.

The exhibition is accompanied by a gallery tour and artists' talk, and a series of related events. Please visit our website for more info.

The SEFT-1 exploration probe will be on display next to the gallery 20'22 June, 11'13 July, 18'20 July and 25'27 July 2014.
