“Negotiating an archive is an act of looking back, inevitably – and perhaps even unconsciously – the searcher seeks out content that can help reveal the present with a more concrete perspective. The works selected from LUX’s archive form a strand of critical thought relating to technology, history, visions of power and the future. Arguably, that future is now.” – Yuri Pattison.
This programme presents a provocative and unique insight into the LUX collection curated by Irish-born, UK-based artist Yuri Pattison, featuring works by Adam Chodzko, Bureau of Inverse Technology, and The Otolith Group.
