5 September 2017: Non-linear: Magnets


Curated by Shama KhannaMagnets addresses different identities in production, specifically in relation to others around us. Many of the works take physical props and real-time interactions as their points of focus; and we watch how these enhance dynamics of attraction, contradiction and confluence.

The Non-linear series imagines collaborative processes and erotic immersion in place of mounting egos, overpowering criticality and fantasy futures. These latter tropes can be read as symptoms of individualising structures of control which have come to involve media making mediums of its users.
