and if a double decker bus...

 

a cumulative exhibition of 4 two-person shows, each one installed on top of the last...

 

When objects or documents are forced to exist within a stream of steadily increasing stuff, are they destined only to be compromised and their voice drowned out?  Or, can they affect a transformation where their subservience and a surrounding chaos fosters new possibilities?
 
A certain irrational dialogue is created through accretion. Objects – which themselves are drawn from a polyglot and multilayered experience of the world – have the potential to behave in more than one way. As the context changes, so too does an object's reactive logic. 
 
Surfeit, excess and abundance seem characteristic of a developed and comfortable life.  But only when the abundance relates to some thing that has the potential to be consumed.  If excess relates to something unwelcome – such as rising tides or spreading pestilence – too much quickly becomes intolerable.  Even more benevolent surfeit - too much comfort - has the power to create anxiety or landfill.
 
and if a double decker bus… is a show that builds slowly and chaotically throughout its 5-week run using the loose categories: Studio matter, Virtual spaces, Domestic lives and Narratives. In week one, 2 artists will install works together. This exhibition will then be open to the public from Thursday through Saturday. In week two, 2 further artists arrive and install more works among the show made the previous week, which then opens to the public from Thursday through Saturday. This repeats two further times, and so by the final open period, there exists four 2-person shows installed on top of and among each other.
 
As the title suggests, this show understands collision as being a vehicle for release as much as it is for destruction.
