FAD will be programming an event which will bring together four artists; Vanessa Mitter, Gerald Curtis, James Gardiner and Jack Catling. The artists have each been asked to respond to the title, activating social exchange through two days of live performances.

Have the seductive images and signs of contemporary culture and phenomenon of the virtual communities become realer than the real? Are contemporary subjects becoming less and less connected to each other and reality? FAD will disseminate the orders of simulation within the hyperreal culture of today. Exploring the circuit between the real and the imaginary.

4pm Gerald Curtis Studio Chess

Studio Chess is a performance played as a game between two teams over the course of one hour. During this time the two teams compete to perform a series of minimal, stereotypically passive studio actions, from making tea to reading a magazine. These actions are tallied by a gamekeeper as the two sides compete to tap out on a chess clock. At the end of the hour the gamekeeper tallies up the scores each team makes and decides the winner. Studio Chess takes from the life of the artist, and is a piece on observation and counting time as much as a competition of apathy.

Since graduating from the UCA, Canterbury in 2009 Gerald has been making and collaborating with other artists nationally. Performing for several larger arts projects including: Southend Art Trail and Multiple Occupancy at Hatch Space, he has co-curated shows two years consecutively for Hackney WickED festival, London and most recently Hatch[ED] in Hatch Space Deptford. In 2012 Gerald undertook his first residency as part of the Comma project for New Ferry Butterfly Park, creating the video work An Anthology. Gerald is currently taking part in Variety Variety at The Roundhouse and undertaking Unrecorded Project toward making a new work entitled Book of Essays in 2013, which is supported by Farnham Maltings No Strings Attached scheme and the RC Sherriff Trust.

James Gardiner3 Performance art at The Other Art Fair TODAY Friday 23rd November 4pm   7pm
6pm James Gardiner 2:29

James Gardiner’s practice is based around recontextualising and reconsidering sound from various sources. This process forms the basis of compositions or ‘sonic collages’ that juxtapose these elements, often taken from or relating to congregations of people.
Gardiner will perform a piece called ‘2:29′ (after John Cage’s 4’33”). The title relates to the length of the piece, as is the case with John Cage’s work. ‘2.29’ is a reconfiguration. In this sense (in terms of its making) it is a simulacrum of John Cage’s aleatory principles, using chance driven processes to produce a composition that is ultimately reconstructed as a whole. In this sense, it is a replica but totally distinct from its origins. Therefore, it evokes the uncanny.

REVIEW: Rearranging the Career of Bita Fayyazi

Bita Fayyazi’s work is disquieting; massive cockroaches swarm and inelegant thread bound heads jut from walls, smashed figures squat on low podiums and terracotta dead dogs lie on piles of dirt. Yet, almost against aesthetic reason, the pieces are utterly compelling. Her third solo outing at Gallery Isabelle van den Eynde is a reinterpretation of her [...]
