Stereo Exchange sways its first show gently into 2023 with Luke Fowler (SCOT) & Kasper Akhøj (DK) at the bow.
This show posits a symbolic view of utopia, a fragile fragment of imagination, built with opaque materials but with an ephemeral exhaust that releases the pressure as we’re zoomed back down to eye level.
Monuments and buildings that scrape the sky are built to power and the people that stole it, creating a world where the unbalanced and crooked is the norm, even the ancient evolved creatures of our forests have been forced to be prostitutes to capital as our jungles burn, all we can do is rub and scratch ourselves on the facades of the buildings that stand in their place. Slowly wearing the intentionally rough surface away, our only hope is that our voices can pierce their armour, split and crumble their design that has walled us in since the greenery was eradicated, maybe we can flatten out and look from the ground up into the macro and start again?
Intense nostalgia keeps this as a fantasy, we look inward and backward and towards the trinkets and collections and only see our next personal goal, the forests still burn and the erections of monuments and buildings in their place still prevail, oh sun, we miss you, you play with us, you will take five billion years to really set us free, in the meantime, hold on, we can recognise these waves, the visualised waves coming over us, the brutalism will stop who it wants, but even the ones that are the intended fall in love, there is no wafer thin dream that will release us from the ellipse of behaviour until then.
Thank you sun, we are all thankful to see you again in some months.
