Synthesising the Preferred Inputs
September 15 – November 5, 2016 (extended)
Opening: September 14, 18:00 – 21:00
Future Gallery is proud to present Constant Dullaart’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. ‘Synthesising the Preferred Inputs’ includes new works derrived from his recent performative intervention for Schirn, Kunsthalle Frankfurt, The Possibility of an Army (http://army.cheap/), a new series of oil paintings based on images generated by neural networks, as well as photographic prints from his Instagram project for Jeu de Paume and HMKV, ‘High Rentention, Slow Delivery’ (http://dismagazine.com/dystopia/6 a 7039/constant-dullaart-100000-followers-for-everyone/) The exhibition opens on September 14th and runs through October 15, 2016.
The exhibition can be thought of as a series of precise automated processes employed as metonymic narratives, illuminating the rigor and absurdity at which our daily networked existences develop. These processes have been translated from their often hidden native online presence to symbolic physical objects that serve as artifacts of an ever-changing connected society and whirlwind of propaganda that is our understanding of depiction and identity in this online mediated reality.
Recent solo exhibitions include, The Possibility of an Army, Kunsthalle Schirn, Frankfurt; Jennifer in Paradise, Futura, Prague; The Censored Internet, Aksioma, Ljubljana (2015); Stringendo, Vanishing Mediators at Carroll / Fletcher, London; Brave New Panderers, XPO gallery, Paris (2014); Jennifer in Paradise, Future Gallery, Berlin; Jennifer in Paradise, Import Projects, Berlin (2013) and Onomatopoeia, Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, Salt Lake City (2012). Group exhibitions include Public Works Utrecht, Then They Form Us, MCA, Santa Barbara; When I Give, I Give Myself, Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam; Algorithmic Rubbish, Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam (2015). Dullaart has curated several exhibitions and lectured at universities and academies throughout Europe, most currently at the Werkplaats Typografie. Recently he has been awarded the Prix Net-Art 2015.
