A combination of discreet wall-based artworks, interactive performance, video and sculpture.

SURPLUS VALUE… the exhibition locates itself within a landscape of super-abundance and over-production; a surplus value of signification, of culture, of poverty, of violence, of commodity, of death. As such this is an AXXXSSSPRESSSSUNIZMMMM which extends out and through popular culture, art, music, and advertising to the limits of the known universe and cosmic time.

NON-ARISTOCRATIC EXCESS AND BOREDOM. Aristocratic visions of libidinal excess are relocated into an excessive pop landscape of pulp fiction and film, post-beat horror, oppression, pornography, high school massacres, dysfunction, boredom and overdose.

DETERRITORIALISATION. AXXXXXXXPRESSSUNIZM rejects all forms of critically approved cultural pessimism and presents instead an un-mourning, an affirmation of the immanent force of the possible that is in the world as ‘Events of becoming’.

SPECTACULAR. This event exists as one more commodity among many. Uncontainable - the show is seen to spiral virally inside and outside, beyond and below, above and nowhere.

WE’RE LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVING IT!
