Beneath the Signal and Noise was first presented at The Silver Building in Silvertown London, UK in the international group exhibition Silver Sehnsucht in Oct 2017 curated by Mara-Johanna Kölmel, Silvana Lagos and Rafael Schacter (A by P). The exhibition was part of Freize week and was reviewed in Third Text.
The artwork is a sculptural installation populated by prone and precarious identities, chimeric figurations and post-industrial landscapes. The installation entwines issues of empire, technological utopianism and spatio-temporal anxiety with Silvertown's own material identity and its complex relationship to time and space within the context of present day regeneration.
As part of the exhibition programme Matterlurgy presented a performance in partnership with The Line London’s first dedicated art walk conceived by Megan Piper and Clive Dutton. The installation was later exhibited at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (mima) as part of the collections display in 2018-2019.
