Wednesday 7th July 10.30am - 12.30pm
The /origin\forward/slash\ group, currently on a digital placement at Flat Time House, invite you to a live presentation by 5 of their members against the backdrop of their virtual extension to the gallery, 'The Other Hand.’ United by a shared investment in thinking through with and against Martin Heidegger’s The Origin of the Work of Art, the group have been developing, over the past year, a shared exploration into the recesses of the essay, finding provocative ground for new thinking and making. They have been working in pairs (through artistic practice and philosophical thinking) with a process of open-ended collaborative production and it is this which will be discussed and demonstrated at Dust Jacket for an Exhibition Postponed. A dust jacket promotes, promises and protects ‘the book’, and the book in turn forms an abode for the ‘work.’ Initially invited to create an exhibition at Flat Time House in 2020, the /origin\forward/slash\ group have used the hiatus of pandemic lock down as a rare opportunity to spend time online ‘inhabiting’ their interests and friendships together. This event welcomes you into discussion with their work and aims to act as a promise and promotion of their future exhibition at the gallery.
The /origin\forward/slash\ group are Steven Claydon (Independent), Marie Hay (De Montfort University), Sacha Golob (Kings College, London), Jo Malt (Kings College, London), Hester Reeve (Sheffield Hallam University), Mark Titmarsh (University of Technology, Sydney), Georgios Tsagdis (Leiden University | Erasmus University Rotterdam). This project is lead by Hester Reeve (Reader in Fine Art, Sheffield Hallam University) in association with The Centre for Philosophy and Visual Arts (Kings College London).
