Art & Design / 27 February, 2011


Wednesday 9 – Sunday 13 March 2011, Under The Dust Studios

Equilibrium at Under The Dust Studios, Hackney


Under the Dust Studios in London Fields is hosting a new multidisciplinary art show entitled Equilibrium on the unstable structures of modern society.

The exhibition questions social, political, economical and technological organisational premises, conceptualising these rules through the process of creative expression in order to highlight the hypothetical balance and unbalance of things.
Equilibrium is a system in which competing influences are balanced. As a show, the exhibition aims to ‘draw attention to the struggle for individual and collective balance within the system’s conveyed order’.

A Hackney-based collective of international artists invites the audience to explore the search for equilibrium in life over a series of thematic evenings, re-evaluating these influences with an exploratory tone of defiance and creativity.
The show’s leitmotiv will develop over a period of five days, when different artists will collaborate in a series of happenings in the gallery space.

The work includes an eclectic array of paintings, sculptures, video, labyrinths, harps, clarinets, vintage synthetisers, samplers and irreverent performances.

Artists featured are Roberto Crippa, Uz In, Bruno Jamaica, Francesca Martinuzzi, Vinny Montag, Michael Picknett, Yuri Pirondi, Francisco Ortega, Marlon Random, Miguel Romo, Kemo Sabe, Amos Shein, Azahara Ubera, Jaime Valtierra and Ines Von Bonhors.
