Click to enlargeON MY ISLAND NONE OF THIS WOULD BE TRUE
Feb 2 - Mar 17, 2018
arebyte is pleased to present on my island none of this would be true, curated by Chris Rawcliffe. The exhibition brings together the work of 10 artists from London, Israel and the USA whose practices span sculpture, installation, photography, poetry, video and performance.
 
These artists are: Naama Arad, Guy Ben-Ner, Verity Birt in collaboration with Holly Graham and Richard-Forbes Hamilton, Edgar–Walker, Gery Georgieva, Joan Jonas, Terence McCormack, Hannah Regel and Mike Seaborne.
 
on my island none of this would be true explores the various interpretations and contradictions that islands summon in our minds. Islands are the place of freedom and adventure sold to us on billboards at Heathrow Airport but also the morning-after of the UK’s Brexit wet dream. Islands are where identities and cultures meet to do commerce and forge empires, yet they are also the forgotten lands where reptiles are left in a permanent Paleolithic state.

SAEMUNDUR THOR HELGASON : FELLOWSHIP OF CITIZENS
Jun 1 - 30, 2018
Fellowship of Citizens is London-based artist Saemundur Thor Helgason’s first solo exhibition in London. The exhibition will formally launch the interest group Félag Borgara (or in English ‘Fellowship of Citizens’) founded by Saemundur Thor Helgason in Reykjavik in October 2017, which aims to lobby for basic income in Iceland through apolitical means.
Part of arebyte’s 2018 programme Islands, the interest group seeks to demonstrate the feasibility of a financing scheme which operates as an economic island, a microcosmic financial system, lobbying for basic income in Iceland. The work operates on a national scale due to legal restrictions, but financially supports BIEN (Basic Income Earth Network), an international organisation that advocates for basic income worldwide.
