Hi all,
Looking forward to hosting the panel with Carla Gannis and Alan Sondheim tonight.http://www.furtherfield.org/programmes/event/artist-talks-carla-gannis-and-alan-sondheim
It will be great to meet some of the Netbehaviour list members, I know some of you will be coming along. The list also, has been growing with many new subscribers. So it would be nice to meet soem you ;-)
Carla Gannis and Alan Sondheim will be talking about their artwork featured in the new exhibition at Furtherfield Gallery, Children of Prometheus http://bit.ly/2ryXTJ1
"In the exhibition Carla Gannis updates Hieronymus Bosch’s famous triptych in her Garden of Emoji Delights replacing medieval religious symbolism with an emotion-inspired iconography for the 21st century. Bosch’s painting was made between 1490 and 1510. In the original, the left panel depicts God presenting Eve to Adam, the central panel is a broad panorama of socially engaged nude figures, fantastical animals, oversized fruit and hybrid stone formations. The right panel is a hellscape and portrays the torments of damnation. Gannis's contemporary version plays on the original themes, and even expresses hedonism. However, there is another message looming in the work. That, even though we are entwined today in our digital networks, products of hyper-capitalism, and technological devices, learned culture, and acquired values: we are all feral beings at our core."
Wishing you well.
