⇧ 5 MARCH – 27 MARCH
⇨ N EȌ ǦĹĮT C H CIŢY
In an immersive installation of digital paintings, videogame design and sculptural work, N EȌ ǦĹĮT C H CIŢY critiques the heteronormativity consistently presented in videogames. Inspired by writings about heteronormativity by Judith Butler and the queer potential of the glitch by Judith Halberstram, Neo Glitch City offers a mediocre videogame were you control a villager in a fantasy city. All the doors are locked, and everyone only talks about heterosexuality. Exhausted and bored, you leave the city and head into a cave where you find a new home. You are left in a disorientating world of technicolor and pixelation. Left to puzzle over what order might look like, where the walls might be, how we might navigate the un-navigated.
For the lost, they can refer to the paintings in the exhibition space. They function as paintings and maps.
