OBJECT 77B
Jul 8 - Sep 16, 2017
Object 77b brings to the space new and recent works by Ludvig Gustafsson, Felicity Hammond and Anna Reading. The exhibition borrows its title from the 1971 book Roadside Picnic by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky. This Russian science fiction novel is about humans dealing with strange artefacts left on Earth after a mysterious alien visit, and depicts a world that is coarse, hopeless and in a chronic state of social decay. Exhibiting together for the first time these artists reflect upon similar tropes whilst remaining distinct in their approach to material and the context of their surroundings.

Dec 2, 2017 - Feb 3, 2018
Private view Fri Dec 1 6pm - 8pm
First Act: Smooth Operations brings together the work of Eva FÓbregas and Patricia Pisanelli, two London-based international artists whose practices are predominantly concerned with the affective and the subjective in the context of the so-called ‘experience economy’. These work place the subject —the individual, the group— amidst the material culture we live in and investigates today’s consumer society under conditions of advanced capitalism.
 
Both artists have developed a rather subtle, and often very humorous, body of work that approaches an accelerated reality where the real and the artificial sometimes blur, and thus gives way to a somewhat detached form of experience —it is in this context that emotions and notions such as desire and expectation gain an unexpected form of gravitas.
The exhibition is curated by Antoni Ferrer.
