In collaboration the artists, Lil Cahill, Jojo and Inge van Genuchten explore the stationary condition of the surface and the vibrations of existence. A tension between life and non-life; a trembling rhythm of an everyday. If one were to give up a fixed position and abandon oneself to the movement, the question arises, would we develop new modes of existence; an ability to coexist.
Imagine a body of things composed of a hierarchy of interrelated components, infinite folding’s of dust. Small, unnoticed elements that are guided by the movement of its surrounding. The surface is heated, atoms migrate in the crystal lattice, the number of dislocations decreases, change is introduced.
Readjusting the view of the human towards its common relation to the earth as a surface. But not just any surface, a surface which bends and tilts, that collapses and implodes, that can absorb bodies, movement and time. That pushes with and against other things. A plane of immanence, of consistency; a space, a velocity on which everything runs, everything flows or pauses on.
Lil Cahill (b. 1991, England) lives and works in Hertfordshire and London. Gaining her BA at Hertfordshire University in 2017 she then went on to graduate from the Royal College of Art with a Masters in sculpture in July 2019. Drawing inspiration from vivid memories and dreams her work follows a line of inquiry into the human psyche and her own difficult relationship with food. In April 2019 she was a part of a collaborative residency and show titled Dirty Hands and Revelations at Standpoint Gallery, London, and in 2017 held a solo show at MK Gallery as 1 of 5 finalists selected for the Platform Graduation Award.
Jojó is a Brazilian printmaker based in London. Before coming to the UK to study at the Royal College of Art, he was a self-taught muralist and painter using the public space as background for the development of his work. At present time, Jojó uses a diversity of mediums, from print to sound and moving image to engage with the audience in immersive-like video installations.
Inge van Genuchten (The Netherlands, lives and works in London) received her BFA from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and completed an MFA at the Royal College of Art, London in 2019. In her work she explores the inter-relation of the human body with either the other individual, an object or its surrounding. A fluctuating process of shifting elements displaying the dynamic interface between the fluid and solid. Her work has been shown in several group exhibitions in Europe both in galleries and museums. She has been shortlisted as young talent and was honored with the Bette & Michael Rogers scholarship towards a residency at North Lands Creative in Scotland.
