ON 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.

Sep 20 - 29, 2018
Private view Thu Sep 20
Luiza Prado and Daniel Rourke invite a potentially endless chain of artists to co-create a web-based billboard of graffiti-like visual calls and responses. Each artist will ‘run over’ one other in dissenting acts of ‘atropelo’: a term used in Brazilian graffiti culture for territorial interventions over someone else’s work. Subverting and writing over and into each other, the works will become a palimpsest of colonial counter-histories, and affirmative decolonising enunciations.
