MECHANICAL HUMAN MATTER
Curated by Sian Bowen and Peter Symons
NORTHWEST GALLERY, AUB
6 JANUARY - 6 FEBRUARY 2020
This exhibition aims to explore complexities of material transformative processes within human/machine spectrum. Each member of the AUB Transformative Matter, Material Trace research group, together with AUB alumni and MA & BA students, placed themselves on the human/machine spectrum in terms of the processes used for the production of their work. They then exchanged drawings in order to experiment how the work might be taken in new directions.
The exhibited pieces are thus the co-production of an object formed through layered processes, which have been implemented by different members of the group. The exhibition poses questions about roles of touch and mechanisation in artistic production and where we can collapse the human/machine binary.
Ilona, Carrie Mason / and four other MA Fine Arts Alumni were invited to take part in the project.
