A solo exhibition by Viktor Timofeev
Members of the press are welcome to preview the exhibition on Friday 17 June by appointment with [email protected] or by telephoning 0207 394 5657
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 system that can be programmed. Timofeev is perhaps most recently known for creating 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. #STATE
Opening on Saturday 18 September 5 – 8pm, with exhibition tour by Cory Scozzari, Jupiter Woods at 5pm and performance by Clifford Sage at 7.30pm
