ATROPELOS : DANIEL ROURKE & LUIZA PRADO
Sep 20 - 29, 2018
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.

Apr 25 - May 18, 2019
Private view Thu Apr 25 6pm - 9pm
arebyte Gallery is pleased to announce World Capital, a new installation by Felicity Hammond.
 
Conversations about the homogenisation of the built environment have taken many forms. From Walter Benjamin’s writings about the effect of capitalism on nineteenth century Paris, to Ian Nairn’s scathing review of the growing ubiquity of town planning, the crisis surrounding urban identity has been and will continue to be widely contested.
 
In World Capital the conversation turns towards the way that digital technologies have influenced the global image of the city. Offering a commentary on the role that the computer generated architectural proposition plays in the increasing uniformity of the urban realm, the work outlines the ways in which the proliferation of the virtual world has contributed to urban indifference.
