Opening 6.00pm 9 Feb 2018

Interface is a multidisciplinary exhibition exposing the structures of modern communication. As a society our methods of interaction with the world have changed considerably in the contemporary era. Social media, constructed identities and the ubiquity of the online space, as an area for self-representation, have all become defining aspects of our real-life experience. Interface brings together four artists to take a look at the consequences of our society’s reliance on technology through performance, video, sound and sculpture. Liam Power will explore the causal relationship between thought, speech and memory in The Bridge. Brodie Kokkinos will present a mediated social interaction between two contemporary, socially extended beings in Consume. Chris Bowes’ Mirror explores the blurring boundaries between a physical and digital existence. Louis Fourie becomes LouFou the dating bot, who investigates post-human intimacy that is mediated through popular online media forms and re-materialises as a sound performance.
