An exhibition and research project exploring notions of aura & authenticity in the post-digital context.
The selected works circle around the complex relations between the auratic, (Walter Benjamin’s term for the authentic, original artefact, singular in space and time) and the technologically reproduced, dispersed and viewed art object prevalent in the current post-digital period. Including video, sculpture, drawing, audio and 3D printed objects.
Artists and writers involved include: Cory Arcangel, Michelle Atherton, Erika Balsom, James Clarkson, Tim Etchells, Yuen Fong Ling, Jan Hopkins, Esther Leslie, Margarita Gluzberg, Sharna Jackson, Oliver Laric, Penny McCarthy, Florian Roithmayr, Lucy Steeds and Diana Taylor.
