About the event

This July The RYDER presents three video programmes, each running a week in the gallery. Nine artists will present their works in: Resting Transmissions (5 – 9 July), Eyes Above, Bodies Below (12 – 16 July), Nice night for a walk (19 – 23 July).

?Resting Transmissions presents works engaging with histories and practices of television. Industrial modes of production and dissemination are intercepted and reinterpreted, shifting and activating viewership. With its semi-lucid self-made counter-narratives, this programme unfolds like an atypical night of broadcast. Featuring work by: Kathryn Elkin, Wendy Geller, and Su Hui-Yu.

The programme Eyes Above, Bodies Below suggests there are many ways in which eyes may be separate from bodies; there are many ways bodies swap and narratives switch. The works present combinations of vision, bodies inscribed with self-actuated stories as well as scripted strands from above. Cartesian dualism is both affirmed and confronted, fluidity seeps up as stories hop hosts, sending out beacons. Featuring work by: Deirdre Sargent, Maha Maamoun, and Stephanie Comilang.

Nice night for a walk presents works that excavate material from circulating film franchises, and their resulting pop-cultural sediment. Particular moments, cyborgs, and the onscreen presence of Arnold Schwarzenegger are remobilized. Metallic mirrored surfaces emerge that reflect ossified references, surrounding and reworking them. Featuring work by: Jenna Sutela, Daniel Cockburn, and Frank Heath.

The series: Resting Transmissions / Eyes Above, Bodies Below / Nice night for a walk is curated by Erik Martinson.
