PRIVATE VIEW: Tuesday 28th June at 6:30PM
Technology is an intrinsic part of everyday life that constantly changes the way we navigate our world. With the internet bridging distances of physical space, human communication becomes instant. But technology also allows itself to disappear: the way it operates is hidden; starting from the way data is collected to the construction of our online newsfeeds and timelines. How well do we really know this virtual extension of ourselves and of our world?
SELF/CONTROL is a collaborative exhibition that explores how technologies have affected how we construct identity, how information is controlled, and how collective and individual memories are made. The display is a conversation between the immediate present, the long forgotten past and the impending future.
The ten artists exhibited investigate how well we know the digital spaces we have now adopted as second nature. They question and problematize our relationship with technology. They analyse, with different medium and works, key issues of our imminent future. You are invited to witness the rhythms, processes and dissemination of the digital world.
Collectively, we ask you the question: Are you in control?
Opening hours: Wednesday to Saturday 11:00am – 6:00pm
Punctum Gallery, Chelsea College of Arts
16 John Islip St., London SW1P 4JU
The exhibition is free and open to the public.
