Deliberately ambiguous, S.T.A.T.E. suggests multiple meanings, both within its acronym and its etymology: a delineated space governed by a unifying structure; a psychological platform that engenders an introspective mind-set; a variable condition used to measure a programmed system.

Timofeev creates installations with digitally generated imagery, interactive games and rule-based performances. This work runs parallel to a drawing and painting practice from which his logic and inventions spring and which are collectively grouped as S.T.A.T.E., a title conceived by Timofeev in 2013. It is this body of work – drawings with ink, graphite and coloured pencil on paper, plus a selection of publications that will be included in this exhibition.
