Beneath the Signal and Noise is an installation populated by prone and precarious identities, chimeric figurations and speculative landscapes. The installation was first presented at The Silver Building in Silvertown London, UK in the group exhibition Silver Sehnsucht Oct 2017 curated by Mara-Johanna Kölmel, Silvana Lagos and Rafael Schacter (A by P).
The work 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. Matterlurgy presented a performance as part of the installation which activated the sculptures using movement, radio broadcast and sound.
The installation is currently on show at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (mima) as part of the permanent collections display.
