A new work exploring ancient Cynics, language and spam. The personal, political, spiritual and economic are woven together in a rotating sound and moving image listening experience.
About Unnatural Wealth
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Unnatural Wealth combines moving image and disembodied voices, creating an absurd allegory of the times through a look at language circulating in the property market. This work evolved from a period of research viewing luxury apartments with estate agents in London, and later, in Glasgow. Footage of flat viewings is used to create the background for collage works, where disembodied teeth become inflicted by spam and advertising, which creates parasitic extrusions on their surface. References to the mouth, in particular, representations of teeth as a way to deconstruct the voice, recur throughout.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Unnatural Wealth are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
