GILL SOUTHERN - THE MINORIES


The exhibition; Endless Equivocation, has been developed by Gill Southern from an; "interest in the management of information by media organisations, particularly newspapers" (No, don't worry - this is a Leveson Inquiry free zone). 

The idea of manipulation of information by the media and how contexts can be taken apart is central to the work. Rules, numbers, systems, arrangements, configurations etc are all a key part of our time driven and governed lives, they may help us communicate, but they also help us govern and manipulate the truth. 

"The number and colour of cubes corresponds to the number and colour of squares on a chess board - a universal gaming structure - but the grid has been deconstructed, and appears to be in a process of expansion and dissolution. The elements of the work could be viewed as either micro or macro - minute particles and molecules or massive cosmic entities - connecting the patterns that can be found within both to bridge the extremities of scale and position us between them."
