9 Artworks

Sherbet Green is glad to present you its latest exhibition "ALL NIGHT" featuring Louis Blue Newby, Eloise Hawser, and Mimi Hope & Ben Galyas.

ALL NIGHT; dance music, sexuality and industrial waste. The mechanisms of information distribution continue to warp and accelerate. Newby, Hawser, Hope, and Galyas look to draw connections between cultural artefacts in relation to this immutable change. Pornography, rave fliers, and newspapers are stacked,smothered, and soaked. Taken out of circulation, the uncertain and unstable surfaces of these works solidify the ephemeral nature of the printed image. Suchproduction confronts the very meaning and direction of the source material, oftendistributed and discarded en masse, their lustre fading as night turns to day, these images meet their disfigurement and ultimate demise in the liminal spaces of the city.

LOUIS BLUE NEWBY

Through the processes of scanning, cropping, reprinting and rearranging various images and text taken from a personal archive of queer printed material and pornography, Newby’s work posits a language that leans into its own subjectivityand centres itself around the oppositional mode of queerness. These collages attempt to inhabit queer theorist José Esteban Muñoz’s assertion that archives are in fact fictions, narratives that seek to organise and regulate the desires of the peripheral. Layering, both physical and symbolic, is key within this practice, performed through digital image manipulation and analogue techniques, transforming the plane of the work into a site of relation and interconnection.

 

ELOISE HAWSER

In these works, Hawser reconfigures and repurposes discarded printing plates and newspapers into sculptural and 2D forms, exploring their narrative, psychological and affective potential. Through this practice, she considers the decay cycle of news media; no more pronounced than in the printing of newspapers, which is a process that generates huge amounts of metal, paper and chemical waste. The works form part of the wider PressTracker Project Archive (2020–ongoing), which also encompasses an online website that brings together gov.uk stats and front page news, originally initiated in order to map the progress of the pandemic against daily front page news stories from UK titles.

 

MIMI HOPE & BEN GALYAS

As a duo, Hope & Galyas have a longstanding interest in the history of UK dance culture, its physical manifestations and experiential reality. For Serious Dance Lovers Up & Down the Country, Respect You! 2x2 is a series of re-photographic prints spanning solarised c-type experiments, screen(mis)prints, and contoured solar etchings.The works originate from a flyer for “The Awakening”, a 1991 party that took place in Peterborough promising “NON STOP DANCE MANIA”. Their interest in the flyer stems from both its form and composition; a sublime natural paradise. The metaphorical implications of the communal spiritual ecstasy promised by early dance parties and its unravelling into their reality.The work itself addresses the mass distribution of the original source. Hope & Galyas have allowed the natural mishappens of traditional print processes to alter and occasionally destroy the image. Their intention throughout is to create difficult pictures, to delay legibility and countenance immediate gratification.
