erutuF

No one has ever called the process of urban renewal considerate. The rendering of cultivated neighborhoods barren, and the slow regeneration of their working parts under more financially advantageous auspices is an invasive, ceaseless operation. No individual would sign themselves up this.
With each reiteration on its forward roll, the renewal of urban spaces extends a ripple into the fabric of the individual and into the community. The city’s mesh of thick and twisty layers absorbs each wave, quietly and caustically, with time. Despite cultural debasement and the stuff of personal tragedy for a deeply rooted few, the honking call of gentrification is heeded at each of its demands. The residents, if they stick to the reanimated flesh, are presented with an unfamiliar space outside of their own terms.
This imprecise process often goes unmeasured. Individuals submit to it tacitly. erutuF examines the process of decay and reconstruction through the individual thinking and rites of construction significant relationships.
More than 16 different artists and groups have come forward to exhibit works to explore this theme. They include: island6 Art Collective, Richard Fenwick, Chen Hangfeng Roland Darjes, WeAre Art Collective, Panos Dimitropoulos, Guanyi Ming, Monika Lin, Virginie Knight, Christophe Demaître, Zane Mellupe-Goutard, Daniele Mattioli, Kurihara Jugo, Hidemi Shimura, Zhang Xianyong, and the logArton Art Collective.

BLURB

We all have dreams, hopes and aspirations. Some good, some bad, some unspeakable. Often times though, it is the dreams of the most unlikely dreamers among us that are the most deserving of attention: the machines that do our daily bidding. From our washing machines to our digital icons and avatars, Machine Dreams explores the quiet hopes of the hopeless, with a little bit of insight from the sources themselves. (read more >>>)
