Electric Earth is an exhibition of video-based works examining themes of alternative ways of living and systems of belief. The artist appears as a contemporary flaneur who mines pre-determined social structures, and acting as a facilitator he or she seeks to appropriate and subvert the basis of power within their chosen subject matter through simple interventions. In this way the artists in Electric Earth look to expand our understanding of social systems and codes, re-positioning the viewer’s expectations. Includes artists biographies, bibliography and curators in conversation.
