Rheology >-- forms that flow adopts the chemical deformation of matter from solid to liquid to explore the way we experience images in the post-digital age. Concerned with the fractured, ephemeral and infinitely reproducible transience of images, this exhibition considers the journey from objects to data and back again.

INFORMATION

These artists are preoccupied with a multiplicity of forms and unsettling objects that speak to the act of collaging, dissecting, montaging and assembling. This process disavows the context and point of origin of an object or image obfuscating their material capacity. Here, artworks challenge our perception of the real through pictorial paradoxes where images and forms are rendered ambiguous - reflecting the internet's non-linear, rhizomic, glitched-out, stream of consciousness.

Rheology is an attempt to dissect the complex and fluid relationship between the surface and the liminal, mutable boundaries of artworks. By complicating the state of images from corporeal to incorporeal, tangible to illusory, this exhibition moves across thresholds to question how the internet has begun to shape the production and consumption of art.

 

Each artwork will begin to act as a hyper-link, accessing another physical or digital state that is played out within the architectural container of the gallery space.
