Yuri Pattison: user, space

Yuri Pattison, user, space (2016). Installation view, Chisenhale Gallery, 2016. Commissioned by Chisenhale Gallery, London. Courtesy of the artist; mother's tankstation limited, Dublin; Helga Maria Klosterfelde, Berlin; and Labor, Mexico.

A long table surrounded by Ikea-style chairs runs through the centre of the gallery, while in one corner, a separate environment for relaxing houses oversized cushions and shelves of plants. And everywhere, there is the physical manifestation of tech: wires, adapters, servers, computers, and cameras, creating a cacophony of noise that hums throughout the installation.

The Science of Imaginary Solutions

Installation view

The object is front and centre of what is an incredibly wide ranging exhibition that spans millennia. In Breese Little's new space in Bethnal Green, a series of works and subtle juxtapositions probe the ways in which object-led narratives are eminently malleable, prone to changing tides in both scientific and philosophical thinking.

At a time in which the extraction of value from every available asset seems the dominant imperative, the artworks here display forms of waste, non-use and degradation.

Sixteen small speakers are attached to the high wall and connected by wires to a computer, as if the building itself is hooked up to some kind of cardiac monitor. These noises, as it turns out, are not the internal organs of The Tetley but a series of audio clips of empty gun shell casings falling to the floor. Review by Sacha Waldron

Gabriele Beveridge: Eternity Anyways

Eternity Anyways, Installation View

Less interested in a prescriptive rhetoric on consumer culture than exploring how the poetic and the personal can be addressed under contemporary conditions, Beveridge sits on the line between ambivalence and celebration – investigating a fascination between the lure of consumer images and objects and the values that they preserve and perpetuate.
