Post Apocalypse

• Tuesday 25th Oct 2011

A journey into the post apocalypse of an alternate area...an anachronistic projection to a post human destruction. What would happen if the human world suddenly ended in the 30′s? How would the world look now, would anything survive? Post Apocalypse is an exploration of that question. Humans are gone, destroyed by nuclear or biological hubris. The world that's left is smoky and ruinous. This is an alternate future containing creatures evolving into a stylised world suddenly found empty. A story of survival, hyper evolution, mutation, glorious gas masks and deco punk themes. 
KAITLIN BECKETT...Mechanical walkers driven by masked creatures walk under a glowing sky, jars are lined up to collect precious liquids and overlapping armour plates wrap around smoking viscera. The poisonous air has necessitated quick adaptations.
ARAMAS...In a world suddenly devoid of human, animals have undergone a hyper evolution. Forced to adapt to a ruined world. The results are animals new to consciousness, struggling to make sense of this strange world, the history that created it, and the future they now have to deal with. There's new religion, old animosities, and a very human sense of curiosity and confusion. I see the bears of this world as the alternative to humans. Inheriting a past that they're trying to understand, with some very strange results.

VESSEL: Exhibition

• Sunday 9th Oct 2011


Sited within a disused industrial space in
Stonehouse, Plymouth, Vessel is a gathering of contemporary artworks showcasing
the work of seventeen international artists that focuses on the particulars of
their postindustrial location in its physical, socio-cultural and economic
contexts. Placed between the logic of the building's architecture and the
city's rich history, this is an exhibition that investigates site-specificity
and the means to artistic intervention. Acting as footnotes against the
backdrop of Plymouth, Vessel reveals itself as a temporal structure in a
display in memory of the site and a reflective commentary of the area's
historical value and contemporary redevelopment. 

Housing works of installation, film, performance,
photography and sculpture, it is not the architecture that forms the focus, but
the ambiguous authority of the works within it. The understanding of the
temporal and dynamic character of Stonehouse's landscape and the expectations
of the site itself is paramount to the reception of these works. The
commissioning of this derelict space is where the vessel is the ship, the
carrier and a container of function and delivery. The show goes on until October 30th 2011
