Exhibition Dates: February 1 - 26
As our technological systems gain complexity, our natural and digital worlds are seemingly less distinct; merging via a kind of mutual mimicry. I watch a lot of Science Fiction explores ideas of technological utopias in a world where simultaneously nature is increasingly enhanced by technology, and technology is anthropomorphized. Channeling language and material specificity to create connections between technology and their biological origins, Alicia King’s new work plays upon the concept of ‘the future’ as a mythical entity that can never actuate.
Dreaming on a Bus is a set of woodcut prints derived from everyday experiences, particularly encounters with constructs such as the urban environment, and notions of lifestyle such as aspirations to luxury. These images both depict and abstract various scenes of the everyday: people in a city street, a close up of a person’s face made generic in its simplicity, or a textural study of the surface of a street or building.

Media Hype brings together the work of six artists who critically engage with materiality, by using one medium to explore another. The exhibition spans painting, drawing, textiles, photography, ceramics, film and installation. The works are hybrid by design, compounding different media in a way that disrupts conventional relationships between medium, form and content.
Whispering some sweet nothing my sometime friend sometime foe Google shares stories. It is hard to ignore these intimate words and images that are so freely given. Like the collaborative parlor game ‘Cadavre Exquis’ each dalliance with Google creates endless opportunities to disrupt the waking mind’s penchant for order.
The practice of intentionally including slight and minor irregularities in Persian rugs is derived from the belief that God is the only perfect being. But who wants to follow a perfect god? An imperfect deity, or ‘false god’, one that is deemed unworthy of divinity is more relatable. A god that shits and pisses, makes mistakes and apologises.
c3 is delighted to announce that the 2016 fundraiser exhibition FAUX STUDIO was a great success.
FAUX STUDIO was part three in a series of curated fundraisers that examine the financial structures of the art world. The show raised enough funds to reduce 2017 exhibition fees by one third, making it more affordable for artists to exhibit.
