Mnemonic City


You are cordially invited to a spectacular two days event , firstly the Private view, Friday the 21st of September, secondly if the opening exited your curiosity, to a Night of Electronic and Live Performance:

Doomed Gallery proudly presents-the Magma collective multi gallery project 2012Friday 21/09/2012 PRIVATE VIEW From 6 to 9pm

An evening of transgression art on the walls, Doomed Gallery 65/67 Ridley Road, E8 2NP,

Mnemonic City is exploring the idea of city as a receptacle, taking inspiration from Plato’s Myth of the Cave. The allegory explores the relation of humankind with their environment, questioning what is real and what appearance is. The theme explores notion of identity, fragmentation and the idea of shadow.
From the concept of the city, Magma moves to the concept of the cave and in doing so triggers a descent into the subterranean space of our latent mind. Magma’s own artistic evolution however defies Plato’s argument, since the work at hand affords the audience a form of knowledge through sensation rather than through the exposition of form as an idea to be unravelled by the intellect.
This opening gathers the works of the Magma collective and contributors:
Miguel Guzman, Azhara Ubera, Yuri Pirondi, Pascal Ancel Bartholdi, Ines Von Bonhorst Jill Rock, Jaime Valtierra, Thomas Cyhitski, Rupert Jager, Max Max, Rebbeca Cartwrigth, Eve Tenebaun

The Event: Spectacle in Mnemonic City
Mnemonic City is exploring the idea of city as a receptacle, taking inspiration from Plato’s Myth of the Cave. The allegory explores the relation of humankind with their environment, questioning what is real and what appearance is. The theme explores notion of identity, fragmentation and the idea of shadow.
The nature of this series of performances is intricately linked to this conjunction of natures by which disparate physical and emotional organized elements construct an image, a common space which becomes an internal metropolis of sensations, a ‘Mnemopolis’, city of remembrance, where ‘anasubstantial’ interconnections take form and language turns back into a primordial sign. This points to the potential/virtual body of what Deleuze and Guattari call “Phase Space”, in this instance, the result of an organic communion of ideas and their ramified manifestations among the performers whose devices interact electrically and electronically during the show. From the concept of the city, Magma moves to the concept of the cave and in doing so triggers a descent into the cave of our latent mind.
The cave Magma explores opens to show the dark motions of the mind traversing territories of ancestral memory having embarked on the ghost ship of mythology. The character of the environment thus reflects the development of the rapport established between the phenomenological process taking place ‘on stage’ and the perceptual response of the members of the public ‘off-stage’ in which these very ‘on/off’ dividing rules become interchangeable and indistinguishable.
Magma’s own artistic evolution defies Plato’s argument, since the work at hand affords the audience a form of knowledge through sensation rather than through the exposition of form as an idea to be unravelled by the intellect. The electrified chamber the performers engineer shows us how the cave can transmute into a lake, the retina of an interior gaze remembering a history in the making. The Magma Collective
