Click to enlargeNIGEL HALL TANGLED UP IN BLUE
Nov 7, 2020 - Feb 20, 2021
Tangled Up in Blue (2020), a major new work in this show, features a series of interlocking elliptical steel rings painted in blue and black. Denser than other works, it is – in the artist’s words - “like an equation on volume, structure and colour.” Named after Bob Dylan’s opening song on the seminal 1975 album, ‘Blood on the Tracks’, as one moves around the sculpture, it appears to move or dance. Elsewhere, Ghost (2020) has a more minimal appearance next to the solid, circular form of the earlier sculpture, Soglio VI(1996) which is named after a Swiss mountain town.

Click to enlargeGRETCHEN ANDREW
Feb 25 - Mar 27, 2021
Private view Thu Feb 25 6pm - 8pm
Gretchen Andrew is a self-proclaimed Internet Imperialist artist. Best known for her playful hacks on major art world institutions, Andrew’s current practice involves actively reprogramming the artificial intelligence underlying the global internet. By performatively manipulating the artificial intelligence of the tech giants’ search engine optimisation (SEO) technology, she can make her dreams come true – at least virtually. Artificial intelligence is inherently backward looking and susceptible to being reprogrammed through knowledge of the internet’s structure and Andrew exploits this, rewriting existing representations of reality by using a search engine’s own rules and limitations against itself.
 
Andrew calls the paintings she produces in conjunction with her hacks, ‘vision boards’ and she has been producing them in series with titles like “Cover of Artforum”, “The next American President” or “Best MFA” since 2019. They begin as charcoal on canvas and grow to include traditionally feminine imagery such as flowers and butterflies with collage elements that add a level of kitsch which contrasts with the tech-tools, AI manipulation and SEO the artist uses to create her hacks.

Click to enlargeSANDRA MUJINGA : SPECTRAL KEEPERS
Jan 21 - Feb 27, 2021
Private view Thu Jan 21 5pm - 7pm
The Approach is excited to announce its debut solo exhibition by Oslo and Berlin based artist Sandra Mujinga (b. 1989, Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo) opening January 2021. Mujinga plays with economies of visibility and opacity, negotiating questions of identity, self-representation and surveillance. Mujinga works across text, sculpture, performance, and dance as well as the internet and the digital image to produce her work. Her work has been described as questioning “what it means to exist in the dark,” highlighting the conflicting nature of visibility, which, whilst serving as an ever-expansive platform for promoting diversity and difference, simultaneously increases unwanted surveillance and data collection. To combat this, the artist suggests that people need to become more adaptable to their environments, often exploring the survival strategies of animals that change their bodily features to adapt to their surroundings. Mujinga employs Afrofuturism and post-human ideas, as a speculative and political gaze envisioning alternative worlds at the intersection of technology, the human and the animal.
 
For her forthcoming show, Mujinga will illuminate the exhibition space with intense green lighting, immersing the viewer into an environment that feels part-nightclub, part-dimension travel dystopia. For Mujinga, this specific shade of green becomes a proxy for blackness. Inspired by ‘green screen’ technology, the colour functions by being both hyper-visible and not at all visible at once; it is the most intense a colour can get, yet being so removed from any other colour – in particular, skin tones – it is also the opposite of colour, an absorbent. Retaining the family resemblance to previous sculptures, but marking a next step in the world building practice of Mujinga, the artist will also make a new set of standing figures for the exhibition, influenced by medieval beekeeping gear, monasterial culture and wickerwork. Cephalopods, such as squid, octopuses and cuttlefish, will also provide significant inspiration. These are creatures that, in their remote habitats, create protection against predators through camouflage or by building their own barriers, whilst still allowing for coexistence and symbiosis with their environment.

ALAN WARBURTON : RGBFAQ
Oct 6, 2020 - Jan 23, 2021 FINAL WEEK
arebyte Gallery are excited to announce a new commission by UK based artist Alan Warburton. RGBFAQ comprises a research-led experiential exhibition in which the audience navigates a "black-box" set populated by gigantic geometric sculptures. Warburton’s ambitious new video essay will be projection mapped onto this sculptural background, expanding the form of his popular video essays (Goodbye Uncanny Valley, Fairytales of Motion) into immersive 3D space.
 
RGBFAQ will unpack the ways that operational, technical and synthetic images are constructed.

KATE FRANCES LINGARD MECHANISMS OF CARE…
Feb 6 - Mar 6, 2021
Private view Fri Feb 5
Kate Frances Lingard’s first solo exhibition, Mechanisms of Care. Kate was the final selected artist of the gallery’s annual young artist development programme, hotel generation. The exhibition involves an adapted, illustrated set of playing cards. These become props to explore whether love, care and intimacy of relationships can alter deeply rooted ideologies surrounding existing frameworks of the financial, societal and the political realms.

Click to enlargeA CHRISTMAS SELECTION
From 4 December, by appointment only
To close this unusual year, the gallery decided to revisit 1995 and present an exhibition of works in a domestic setting, a salon ambience reminiscent of its beginnings, 25 years ago. Recent and new works by the gallery artists and artists due to show in 2021/22 are brought together, without a theme, following the simple rule of aesthetics: what works together will be together!
 
The show will only be open by appointment but tea and cake, or aperitif, will be served to the intrepid visitor. All the works are for sale, reminding the audience that artists and galleries need some help too.

HEATHER PHILLIPSON : VOLTA
Online
Acknowledging the seismic global changes of the past few months, Heather Phillipson has been commissioned by Art on the Underground to produce a new online work to accompany her Fourth Plinth commission, THE END. A counterpoint in tone to THE END, Phillipson’s new audio-collage, VOLTA, reckons with upheaval, renewal and possibility. Written and composed by Phillipson, it combines her distinctive layering of voice, sound effects and music samples to destabilise and relocate.
Phillipson’s singular, visceral audio works connect an abundance of noises, words and images, generating multiple possible directions. Her frenzied musings bend speech to tempo and logic to rhythm, disrupting perceptions and assumptions.
