Resistance and disruption for an alternative society at The Concept Space in London

Louise Ashcroft - "The Koppel Project", 2016

Marco Godoy - "Mobius strip", 2017

From January 19 to February 24, 2018, The Concept Space presents “Acts of disruption” in London curated by Alice Bonnot. “Acts of disruption” is an exhibition of eight international artists who address socio-political contemporaries issues through the exploration of artworks combining art and technology.

The exhibition responds to the idea that engagement, resistance and disruption are the first steps to build an alternative society. By using humor, poetry and philosophy to raise questions and to criticize our current habits, artists invite the viewer to see society in different perspectives.

With transparency, integrity and humour, Thomas Langley creates disturbing text-based paintings that address the dualities of our time, in particular those of the human condition. Some of his works are accurate observations of certain traumas of the society, others are more personal statements, notes and mantras, but all of them are approaching universal truths. By hacking and recycling technologies, Benjamin Gaulon condemns a system of consumerism and planned obsolescence. In a similar approach, Louise Ashcroft creates a multitude of actions and interventions aimed at disconcerting our daily vision and shaking our passive habits.

In fact, “Acts of disruption” is an exhibition that examines how artists can drive change in society and contribute to constructing a better and more sustainable world. This invitation of disobedience is therefore an attempt to create a platform for critical thinking and to reimagine our present and our future. The direct impact of capitalism and globalisation on our everyday lives is also examined through this unique artistic journey.
