Celebrity worship, conspicuous consumption, mass boredom, and hyper sexualisation are not wholly horrible but, admittedly, fascinating in their grotesqueness; alarming in their beauty. Here, sarcasm and sincerity are one and the same. A joke delivered dead-pan, seriously joking, and dead serious.

This screen-based, image-saturated culture, brought on and emphasised by the internet, is held up by the same tools used for simple day-to-day activities. Consumption and production are so close they are often indistinguishable. With an iPhone, everyone is an artist. With a Tumblr, anyone is a curator.

Rinse & Repeat is the first in a series of three exhibitions. The intention is an ongoing dissection of a number of younger artists’ work as an insight into our present moment, as we deal with the effects of omnipresent mediating technologies, subsequent aesthetic conventions, and morphing political dynamics.
