Artists: Paula Crutchlow & Helen Varley Jamieson, Andy Deck, Mary Flanagan, Genetic Moo, Dominic Smith, and Sarah Waterson

To be alive is to be wild. And we humans have a will that shapes the world with language, song, lust, labour and play. And for those of us who connect with it, a network of machines now extends our reach, amplifies our urges and quickens our exchanges. The artists in this exhibition work and play with living organisms and technical things, systems and language, to explore how our relation to the natural world is changing. Gallery visitors (humans and dogs) are invited to view videos, interact with art installations and social media and undertake walks in the surrounding park with its other animals and edible plants.

The event is co-hosted with The Festival of Mint – A Celebration of Local Growing – serving mint tea and mojito made with fresh mint grown locally.

Exhibition Dates: 18 October – 01 December 2012

Open Thu-Fri 1-5pm, Sat 11-5pm

Kontraste 2012 – Electric Shadows presents cutting-edge live performances, installations, films, lectures and sound walks in Krems/Austria from Oct 12 – 14. The festival is conceived as a ‘leap into the void’, a voyage through the electromagnetic spectrum, with audiovisual experiments that manipulate analogue and digital signals to amplify our senses, investigate the dark, and explore cosmological unknowns.
