temporarycontemporary is pleased to be hosting EPISODE, an exhibition of new lens-based work by nine London-based artists from 10th Dec. 2005 - 22nd January 2006.
The selected artworks include video projections, monitor-based works, lens-assisted painting, and photographs, all of which subject the audience to the pleasures of disorientation of sensory, immersive and rhetorical devices. They produce iconographic and dramatic visual and aural experiences, through entangling documentary with drama, realism with the sensory, and austerity with conviction. They openly expose themselves as fabricated constructs. They carry you away, shift you around, or demand your collusion.
Through the exhibition we explore the pleasure, power and sensory extravagance of the delivery of images that propose themselves as fictions or facts. Rather than identify truth as being behind or beyond images, we analyse the politics of belief in images.
The exhibition will be set within a simple but dynamic installation of floating white laminated screens that will encourage and guide as well as inhibit the audience's movement around the gallery space.
