Listen to this; phasing out (2013)

6 Jul 2013–27 Jul 2013

Collaboration by Hannah Smith, Michael John Joseph, Kristy Milliken, Michaela Züge-Bruton

Listen to this (phasing out) seeks uncertainty. Errors of action, gesture and speech are common interferences between listening and speaking subjects, creating passages where meaning might reside and take repose. For Freud these contingent events are linked to our unconscious desires. In this exhibition the artists Hannah Smith, Michael John Joseph, Kristy Milliken and Michaela Züge-Bruton imagine processes that collude and conspire with misunderstandings. Forging twisted connections between making sense and uttering nonsense. Each artist presents a new video work that explores the psychological aspects of correspondence, as a mediated action, full of misapprehension, asynchronicity and frivolity.
