Salt+Powell’s inaugural exhibition ‘Click+Spill’, which featured contemporary art from Local, National, and International Artists along the following concept:
“The futility of everything that comes to us from the media is the inescapable consequence of the absolute inability of that particular stage to remain silent. Music, commercial breaks, news flashes, adverts, news broadcasts, movies, presenters / there is no alternative but to fill the screen; otherwise there would be an irremediable void. That’s why the slightest technical hitch, the slightest slip on the part of the presenter becomes so exciting, for it reveals the depth of the emptiness squinting out at us through this little window.”
As we approach Christmas, a season characterized by both excess and frugality we invite the viewer to engage upon works that muse, either through production or conception, the ever evolving ‘noise’ of the mass media and advertising or the ‘depth of the emptiness’ that this constant ‘noise’ masks. //\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//
