Six Sigma



Images are ferociously uploaded, edited and assimilated through digital networks. Individuals now function as the substance, curator and distributor of their own constructed imagery or narratives. Inhabiting this heavily mediated experience, where everything seeks its own heightened version but nothing happens until its consumed, we construct an imaginary setting where 'Six Sigma' could be applied to the process of the representation and the manufacturing of the body. This production does not hum with the mechanised grit of the industrial but instead the slick, effortless factory of future science. Through the conduit of sculpture and paper works we simulate contemporary culture's fetishisation of pure aesthetic experience. The body is cut, spliced and mimetically reproduced, narratives of fabricated hybridity and the harvesting of idealised corporeal prototypes are sewn into the gallery space.Definition; Six Sigma 6σ is a set of production techniques for process improvement, a disciplined, data-driven methodology for eliminating defects. Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve, and Control. Works on display by Amy Holt and Georgia-May Travers Cook.

Nesting Watering Picturing




the exhibition continues on the 30th and 31st open 12-5pm


Audio-visual installation exploring the concept of work and its effect of structuring contemporary self-identity.Sam Derounian (b. 1987) is a British artist and theatre-maker currently based in London.Sam's work encompasses printmaking, sculpture, writing, and audio-visual elements. His work is influenced heavily (both conceptually and in terms of material and process) by post-dramatic theatre and set design/prop-making. Sam's work is an exploration of the nature of social relationships and structures of power, and how notions of the self are influenced, mediated, and consolidated through these forces.

Industrial Breakcore



What's that fresh item unceremoniously dumped at the bottom of your street this morning? You know, the one you walked past on your dialy commute. No, it's not a defective fridge or a soiled mattress. It's not a knackered old estate agent sign either. It's the next Towards Collapse event! Given our joyous return to unmitigated noise pollution late last year, we thought it only fitting to ramp up the filth even more for 2019, bringing you our heaviest line-up yet! So come jig along to the woes of late capitalism as we teeter ever closer Towards Collapse.
