Chaotic Good

Chaotic Good: Crabhead / Collaborative Princess / Lumpy Oracle

Performance: 5pm – 9pm, 1 November
Exhibition: 2 – 26 November
Venue: Gallery North, Sandyford Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne. NE1 8ST

Throughout 2016, AAS has been exploring what happens when things break down. When self is lost. When abjection occurs. When emotional flooding results in catastrophe. When another organ takes control of the body. When another system takes over logistics. When a quantity of sensation is categorically different from all the quantities before. When you play too loud, too long or too hard. When your world ends.

Chaotic Good: Crabhead / Collaborative Princess / Lumpy Oracle has been developed out of a process of molecular collaboration by AAS with the assistance of Northumbria University, in the form of Warwick Stafford Fellowship support for AAS member Stuart Tait. AAS also wish to acknowledge molecular contributions to development of this work by: Rob Smith, Kayt Hughes, Juliet Fleming, Philip Cornett, Diana Policarpo, Bea Turner and Rene McBrearty. With thanks to Mrs Patterson’s Press and Claire Potter for their work on the exhibition publication.

Performers: Ana Benlloch, Ralph Dorey, Graham Dunning, Lyndsay Officer, Stuart Tait

Farming The Young / On The Mirrors Of Yukon will create a portal to Team 3 through duration B. A fractal palimpsest of data for future generations, which responds to the subject’s subconscious process. How to kill and gut a gull, how to go back before the apocalypse to ensure it happens, blocks of colour, sometimes a headless person walks across, there is a head in a jar.

Team 3 is working on it.
