Inhabiting the Capitalocene

Opened June 25th, 2021 View 3D Gallery
Poster image for Inhabiting the Capitalocene

Statement:

There is a force driving us around, making us live a certain way, dictating our organisation around a specific goal, commanding where our bombs should land and how deep into another sovereign’s airspace our fighter jets should broach. This force is called Capital, and we suckle at its teats dutifully. Like little children still deathly afraid of what lies beyond, so we heed every single command, intelligible or not, believable or not, that this great mother issues.

Nations don’t raze endangered forests for the sustenance benefits of her citizens, nor are wars started by belligerent strongmen with some inner inadequacies to compensate. It is all mediated, driven, predicted, and expected, by the omnipotent force that is capital. And so here is the world capital built, on the backs of humans and machines, at the cost of natural ecologies and non-human humans. This world is still partly jungle, but a jungle of steel, glass and bitcoins; partly urban, but an urbanity slowly yet surely devolving into self-isolating tribes with more intentions of extending capital’s reach; and partly (although I must qualify, it’s a very small part), the future that has yet been written, yet been predicted by the Forex, untainted, a still-absent monument to our still-ongoing collective struggle for a truly post-humanist inclusivity. This future is still inaccessible, but in some corners of this room, you might just catch a glimpse of it.

Text by Bart Seng Wen Long

We should think about what kinds of mood or emotion we are holding, we should pay attention to the threats around us, we should keep sensitivity for the living conditions of others and we should know what are we fighting for. Our rebellion should not only be rooted in our own ‘memory’ but built based on the resonance with a whole human society.

Artworks in this room:

Social Disconnection 2021

Jean-Claude Kadima

“Social Disconnection” represents the feeling of the physical and psychological adaptation to a new environment. It is an interactive piece of work that depicts an unorthodox and ferocious dimension that holds obscure messages translated through the morse code, where the reality of our environment is pushed to the extreme by the challenging relativity of unprecedented times. As the name implies, Jean is wandering through the process of self-discovery by being disconnected from everything to figure out the mental and physical situation of our current society.

Professional Dreamer 2021

Hugh Finnerty

Professional Dreamer inspires the viewer to consider where they are and what they are doing with their life, and to hopefully encourage people to dream and push themselves to follow their dreams.

Deliciously Sustainable 2021

James Tucker

James’s work “A Rotten Pollution” and “Deliciously Sustainable”, is a diptych of two advertisements. A Rotten Pollution communicates to consumers that eating beef causes pollution and Deliciously Sustainable communicates to consumers how plant-based meals can be delicious and sustainable for the environment. They both provides a QR code to the same website, designed to give audiences advice on how they can start to transition to a plant based diet and make changes to the pollution crisis.

Ode to SB 2021

Lewis Wells

Ode to SB is a series of tapestries depicting the tension between 2 sides of the skate community. On the one side there is the skate community, as a subculture and on the other the commercial possibilities of this subculture.

Eventide 2021

Sophie Holden

Eventide is a series of text and image works which discuss the continued danger for lone women walking in the city at night. This is an important, highly relevant discussion to have-as recent events (concerning the murder of Sarah Everard) have proven that the streets are still unsafe, and probably never will be safe for a lone woman. Bringing women’s rights to the forefront of everyone’s minds is key to enabling change, and this work aims to help women through raising awareness and amplifying a female voice.

An image of an alley at a park with green grass and trees in the distance in yellow, green and red. Text on top: I've been stuck in one place for far too long.

I Knew I had A Great Time 2021

Yuehan Wang

I Knew I had A Great Time was inspired by an ancient Chinese prose by Yuanming Tao, "Fountain of the Peach Blossom Spring". The prose describes a peaceful, happy, free and equal life in the village. It depicts the author's pursuit of a better life. The film documents the artist's journey for this idealised world as they write eyes closed for 30 days. Providing a new angle of observation: listening. This work is discovering and reconsidering the relationship between the outer world and ourselves.

Evolution 2021

Yunlong Zhang

Evolution aims to express political propaganda and the contrast between the ideal and reality.Due to the strict information control of china, Yunlong wants to ask the audience whether the propaganda we see is the reality. There are two Spaces in this project. The first space into which the audience enters is a beautiful space for superficial publicity (outside the TV); the second space is a place where the ground is covered with garbage and the walls are filled with TV videos with lost signals (inside the TV), representing the real reality that no one pays attention to.

Beyond the Blue 2021

Francesca Kopanycia-Reynolds

Beyond the Blue is a documentary project based on community of sea swimmers based at Shore Road, Poole. The book and the short film showcases the swimmers in their environment and gives an insight into this community. The visuals sit alongside the swimmer’s stories and allow a clear understanding into the positivity of the group and the joy they get from sea swimming.

Oil Town 2021

Zheng Fang

Oil Town is about people's indifference to history. Shot in Western China in Oil Town. In the last century, China sent workers there to dig for oil. When the oil dried up these people left the town. The whole oil town became an empty city overnight, and now it's just some ruins in the desert. And the town has disappeared from the map of China, the history has been forgotten.

Sitting Out of Time In the Mind's Garden 2021

Née Marie Kiangala

‘Sitting out of time, in the mind’s garden’ is a photographic installation consisting of 3 components. Each component outlines and unpacks the anxieties of the unknown future, a space that is distinguished by the realisation of the death drive and temporality of existence. An eternal battle that binds the curiosity and sense of what meaning the mortal and immortal sphere hold to each other, as well as undoubtedly define the uncanny, as both appear to be a mystery, strange, unfamiliar and embedded with riddles.

(un-)grounding the senses

Anna Komitska

'(un-)grounding the senses' draws parallels between embodied experience and emerging material forms of the contemporary image. The latter is processional, revealed anew via encounters between human and non-human agents. Encased within irregular translucency, the expressivity of abstractions escapes the latent image like open-ended expressions in a rhizomatic network. A shifting understanding of spacetime is rendering the traditional metaphysical approach to photography inadequate. Indeterminacy and a-symmetry point to the subjective and material sensorial experiencing of the world as existing in flux. Human consciousness is no longer considered the centre of things but an element in the inter-relational reality of today.

Dockyard zine

Jamie Hares

The Dockyard Project aims to explore the power imbalance and experiment with removing it; in summary, it seeks to ask the question “what happens when you distribute a project within its subject area?”. This project consists of two main parts, two zines and a social media presence. The zines exists as the focal point of the project, they’re used to provide a direct link between the artist and viewer. Essentially overall the work is designed to create and foster conversation, the art serves as a communication method asking a question rather than the main focus overall.
