Compulsion Loop

WHEN : 10th - 12th October
WHERE : Boxcopy ARI

Continuing the weekender series is Compulsion Loop, featuring new installation based works by artists Chris Bennie, Marnie Edmiston and Madeleine Stack, curated by Sarah Barron. The term, ‘compulsion loop’ is a recently coined word by the gaming industry to describe the intentionally addictive and repetitive model of pursuing goals for rewards. The pursuit for pleasure and fulfillment takes on new meanings, potentiality and ramifications in the context of current technology and society. The works in this exhibition consider the relationship between desire and disaster, the increasingly blurry line between public and private and western society’s insatiable drive for bigger, better and faster gratification.

This exhibition is part of the 2014 BARI Festival – for further details check out:www.bari.com.au
