Massive thanks to the people at BL NK C NV S for putting on an absolutely brilliant show last night. Highlights were Anne Lanzilotti’s masterful and disturbing treated violin, Mark Fell’s cripplingly intense beat destructions, the hypnotic moving op art – akin to Susan Hiller’s Magic Lantern film – by an unfortunately unknown artist and, of course, the main subject of this post – the incredible video art by London based Quayola.
Quayola’s work investigates dialogues and the unpredictable collisions, tensions and equilibriums between the real and artificial, the figurative and abstract, the old and new. His work explores photography, geometry, time-based digital sculptures and immersive audiovisual installations and performances.
Here’s a short selection of his most recent work. You can see more of it, including excerpts from his immersive installations (featured at last year’s Ether festival), over on his website, here.
