It's just two weeks to go until AMBULATORY winner William Mackrell launches his Sculpture Shock intervention Gaps, glitches, and speed bumps. The culmination of his three month residency in the Sculpture Shock studio, Gaps, glitches and speed bumps will attempt to activate the potential of ‘Ambulatory’ as site specific language from the live and nomadic setting of London’s bus network.
Mackrell’s speculative actions balance between the plausible and the absurd, the possible and the unlikely. Mackrell employs this precarious way of working as an inherent characteristic of the everyday. A thought grows full of expectation, but from the outset grapples with the likelihood of not working out. There is a friction throughout all his works that attempt to articulate this contest between reaching a desire in the face of falling away. Works are setup to question how language as a construct frames human existence, with a particular interest in the collision and molding of sensory experiences that join nature and technological production.
Mackrells live performance will be popping up on one of central London's most iconic bus route from Thursday 10 September to Sunday 13 September 11.30 - 4pm. More information coming soon!
