About the event

The Koppel Project Hive is pleased to present All About You, a group exhibition curated by Alex White featuring the work of five artists who address anxieties related to excessive self-imposed productivity in Late Capitalism.

In a society where the overwhelming pressure to achieve as individuals, maximized through technological advancements and the need to be constantly ‘switched on’, has led to a rise in neurological disorders such as ‘burn out’, anxiety and depression. As a result, the individual of Late Capitalism is left exhausted. With the rise of authoritarian politics, our increasingly individualistic society has brought us to a stand-still and an inability to collectively organize.
 
Through sculpture, drawing, video, and performance, All About You posit collective therapy as a counter to increased individualism and the consequential feelings of alienation prevalent in today’s neo-liberal economy. The exhibition oscillates between the individual ‘you’ and the collective ‘you’, which the English language does not differentiate. It both implicates the viewer as a participant within the neo-liberal system, but also offers a potential mode of resistance through collective healing and shared bodily experience.
