Location: Main Gallery, 8th floor
Exhibition: Possession is very pleased to announce an international exhibition that explores the potential for artists to work with questions of authorship and subjectivity, whilst engaging with the pervasive influence of internet culture and contemporary visual reproduction. The artists in Possession respond to high and low technology and its affects in terms of the capacity for infinite reproduction, the predominance of virtuality and the non-hierarchical character of how we consume images and representation.
A sense of immersion in visual culture generally, the use of new and old technologies, a revisiting of earlier critical issues around authorship, originality and context, the un-even significance of signs within a global context, and an embracing of the evacuation of the image characterizes all the artworks in Possession. These issues can challenge the very possibility of a singular or distinct context for understanding the artwork and the presence of the artist all but dissipates; yet much of the artwork within this exhibition subtly undermines this assumption.
Possession points to the paradox of a claim for specificities and subjectivities in much contemporary art practice whilst acknowledging the greater forces and agencies which affect it; or, who is in the process of possessing who? And how do we decide?
