About the work:

Each image in the “Technical Animal” series begins in collaboration with a Generative Adversarial Network. After the digital image has been built, I recreate the work on paper using traditional painting techniques. This exchange from digital generation to traditional manufacture is at the heart of the series- building images that don’t sit well in either space. They aspire to be familiar and confusing all at once.

 

About the artist:

Neal Von Flue’s art explores how we translate tradition and human aesthetics into our dynamic modern world. He has created multi-linear interactive digital stories during the days of the Jurassic Internet, and hand-painted functional QR codes that point to 100-year-old films of dying elephants. He is currently using classical methods to paint the feverish images created by Generative Adversarial Networks. Through these works and others, Neal seeks to demonstrate how we can use technology to enhance craft and individuality.

'Maggot Mouth'

Stop motion animation looped

2020

 

About the work:

Maggot Mouth is part of a series of stop-motion animation works started in Lockdown 2020. All of these works imagine the sculptures as alive and interacting with my body or home environment, exploring ideas around absorbency and the haunted object as well as the relationship we have with household 'pests'. The maggot we associate with dirt and rot, flies on food make my stomach turn, and yet maggots are also used to clean wounds and flies play a vital part in our ecosystems. 

 

About the Artist:

I’m on the hunt for the point of transition between internal and external, real and imagined worlds. Using my own body as a conduit, I explore the inside/outside topography of the female form and blur the boundaries between the natural world and the manufactured one to create super-natural hybridised objects and environments.

Artist Statement:

 

A playful, pseudo-anatomical approach to sculpture sees my recent work using flattened, flat-packable, or inflated forms, where bodily shapes are sliced or cast. On a material level, colour and image are inherent, revealed in cross-section, rather than only as surface properties. The result is work that is both structural and cartoonish; ironic and ambivalent. Drawing upon references from anatomical textbooks, pop-up diagrams and my background in neuroscience and MRI imaging research, the work aims to look at our perception of our own bodily object-hood as sitting in an awkward place between two and three dimensions.

 

Bio:

 

Ally Rosenberg is a London-based artist from Manchester, primarily working in sculpture. His work takes an irreverent look at the body, slicing and casting materials with a structural quality that reveal a relationship between image and object. AQer graduating from Central St. Martins, he took an academic detour into cognitive neuroscience, completing an MSc at UCL and a residency at Harvard’s neuro-imaging lab. This period of research, looking at the interface of anatomical structure and conscious experience, through the multiple planes of MRI images, certainly influenced Ally’s recent sculptural work. The disquieting experience of being confronted with one’s own fragile materiality, along with one’s own fragile perceptions, is a source of humour in his work.

'Buster Jangle-Easy'

Tapestry wall hanging

50 x 60”

2021

'The Shield'

Oil on un-stretched linen

110 x 73cm

2019

About the work:

Kirsty Harris presents brand new work in the form of a machine woven Tapestry for Hyper Limbo.

Based on her painting with the same title - "Buster Jangle - Easy" blurs the line between eras.

Did the atom bomb does mark the start of the Anthropocene?

If so, how does this strange weaving fit into the mix, and how will all these notions sit together in the digital, futuristic realm of Yeah Totally Gallery.

In her painting titled “The Shield” two ghost-like figures are depicted actively running away from something. The image is taken from a documentary about the escape of soldiers from an underground bunker when a thermo-nuclear test went way over the anticipated yield. 

They were given no protective clothing and had to fashion it from bed sheets in order to try and shield themselves, somewhat, from fallout - while escaping the bunker and running to the helicopter. As they exit they believe they are dead men.

About the Artist:

Harris's works across a wide range of media from vast oil paintings & projections to ceramics you can hold in your hand, all based around the imagery and data collected on the atom bomb. Referencing the scale, beauty and abhorrent nature of nuclear tests, she delves into the periphery of the subject, the myths, characters and surrounding evidence.

Keef Winter

About the Work:

'Canary Wharf' is a unique sculptural cast made from Crystacal R by Keef Winter and Nayden Hadzhiev. It is cast using a 3D printed mold that is spun to allow the crystacal to set evenly around the edges and faces. 'Canary Wharf' is a work that pinpoints One Canada Square, a London monument in the heart of an older finanical centre as a signifier of a landmark, a temple of economy and of an Apollonian space.

Robin Haithcoat

About the work:

 “The Implications” are a species of photographic evidence collected throughout ongoing experiments (2018 - present) that test the ingredients and circumstances of what one perceives to be real. As hyper-surfaces of the present, the samples serve as negotiation stations from which to orient one's' sense and state of self.

 

About the Artist:

“I’m Robin Haithcoat.  

I and 24 years old. 

I live in Columbia Missouri, US. 

My pictures are my playmates. 

I build webs to catch bugs that build webs to catch me.”

Baba Ali

'We Come Out At Night'
Song and Video Remix of 'Black Wagon' (2021, Memphis Industries)
4:23min
3:4 ratio

"We Come Out At Night" is a 'remix' by Baba Ali of the song and video 'Black Wagon', from his debut LP 'Memory Device'. The remix piece is a climatic evocation of nightlife and the euphoric and cathartic sensation of dance music.

About the Artist:


Baba Ali is an American-born, London based recording artist and performer. His music reveals his life's journey absorbing disco and funk from his parents and the hip hop on nyc’s hot 97, to time immersed in the techno scene in berlin, and the experimental punk spirit of his current base in the UK.
Written during lockdown, and recorded with Al Doyle (LCD Soundsystem, hot chip) in east London, 'Memory Device' is both a dizzyingly inventive exploration of Baba Ali's complex musical DNA, and a thought-provoking treatise on the collective angst of modern existence; a dance record dealing in small ‘p’ politics that, spiritually, has been three decades in the making.

Installation of Dolos

Plaster IRL

2021

 

The Temple of Dolos stands tall in this new hyper reality,  a futuristic dystopia where these sea defence structures are worshipped in this sacred space by an unknown civilisation. Marble panels line the walls painted with intricate dolos patterns. The interlocking mass of Dollose in the centre of the room mirrored by a second floating on the ceiling, here in HYPER LIMBO the laws of gravity don’t apply. 

As sea levels rise due to global warming the extent & severity of coastal erosion is getting worse. If nothing is done, half of the world’s sandy beaches could disappear by 2100 due to climate change induced coastal erosion and rising seas. The Dolos defends against coastal erosion by dissipating, rather than blocking, the energy of waves and reducing displacement by interlocking. The name Dolos is derived from the Afrikaans word dolos- plural dolosse, a reference to ox knuckle-joint bones used in divination practices by sangomas, South African healers or the ox knuckle bones used by African children to play the ancient game of Knucklebones. The Dolos, piled up on top of each other look like giant playing pieces from an ancient game or bones that have been scattered for the purposes of divination.

About the Artist:
