Event details

Presented via a series of intuitively formed constructs of blended colours, warped shapes and images of natural elements, misunderstanding and ambiguity gives rise to free-form poetic response.

As their core practice, IOP have curated many exhibitions of artists’ work. Artificial Sensibility will be an opportunity to widen their scope of production by collaborating closely with other types of makers, including technical and artisan practitioners with specific savoir-faire.

Artificial Sensibility follows Reconstructive Memory Galerie Valentin, Paris, 2016; Mental Matter, Les Bains-Douches, Alençon, 2016; Deep Screen, Parc Saint-Léger, Pougues-les-Eaux, 2015; and Screen Play, SWG3 Gallery, Glasgow, 2014. It is part of an ongoing exploration into methods of producing, installing, apprehending and distributing an exhibition in physical spaces, online, and in the hard drive of our brains.

This exhibition is supported by Fluxus Art Projects.
