[Taking] Control

Group Show

03 Nov 2016 to 08 Nov 2016
 
This exhibition will be hosted in Deptford Old Police Station, a space originally conceived according to strict surveillance parameters. After being arrested or detained, the original occupants of the cells would be systematically watched, and with this in mind, the curators invited artists to respond to the repurposed space around the theme of surveillance and notions of control.
 
Cameras that line public spaces silently record every move, while web-based tools adapt satellite technologies to ensure human behaviour is monitored and overseen. [Taking] Control plays with the idea of taking this power back. With the sudden increase in digital technologies involving self-monitoring via cell phones and GPS, a new sensibility and spatial politics is evident within the public sphere.
 
About the Artist:
This small group of international artists create work that spans multiple mediums. Through use of various forms of production, including video, large format photography and camera obscura drawings, they explore complex societal structures, intertwining them to create patterns and a new way of seeing. Drawing attention to the typically avoided conditions of flow inside cityspaces, the artists work to show the process of monitoring the surveillence.
