An exhibition and research project exploring notions of aura and authenticity in the post-digital context.
The works selected for A Strange Weave of time and Space circle the complex relations between the auratic, (Walter Benjamin’s term for the authentic, original artefact, singular in space and time) and the technologically reproduced, dispersed and viewed art object prevalent in the current post-digital period.
Artists include Cory Archangel, James Clarkson, Tim Etchells, Jan Hopkins, Margarita Gluzberg, Oliver Laric, Penny McCarthy, Florian Roithmayr and Diana Taylor. The exhibition includes video, sculpture, drawing, audio and 3D printed objects.
A linked online cumulative glossary project – Writing Tests – involves the artists and also the writers Esther Leslie, Erika Balsom and Lucy Steeds.
Site Gallery Project Space, Sheffield 12 – 28 July 2019.
