Jessica Curry How’s it going in there?Opening: Wednesday 14 February, 6–8pm Dates: 14 February - 10 March 2018
“How’s it going in there?” explores the ways in which modern consumerism articulates a disappointing demand for an absent ideality.
Firmly embedded within these consumerist practices is an engagement with the immaterial, a commodification of ideas and a fetishized treatment of objects. Cultivated within the modern consumer is a seemingly insatiable appetite for more and more, to participate in ever increasing games of social distinction through the enhancement, performance and accumulation of commodities - or capital. “How’s it going in there?” endeavours to articulate these immaterial engagements and often subliminal processes by subverting and abstracting imagery and display methods to highlight and destabilize the apparent perpetual cycle.
