The exhibition will run from 11.00 until 19.00, alongside the lectures. It features the video work Mothership, 2013 by Jonathan Monaghan.
Mothership appropriates characters and objects from science fiction, advertising, videogames and art history. Challenging the boundaries between the real, the imagined, and the virtual the piece travels a space between Rainbow Road, the landscape of German romantic painting, and the Technodrome. Absurdly pulling together disparate populist imagery that evokes value, power and technology into a haunting computer animated cinematic loop, it fuses luxury apartments and medical operating rooms, as well as the London financial center and a sacred cow.
