FILE UNDER SACRED MUSIC IN NEWCASTLE
The NewBridge Project presents HOT TRIGGER, an exhibition exploring themes of reproduction, representation and dualism within a hyperreal age of mass media and a free market approach to distribution and communication.
HOT TRIGGER presents work by seven artists who acknowledge existing cycles of assimilation and appropriation of information, imagery and cultural references within modern life. Many of the artists ask us to consider the systems with which such information is validated, and the importance and the role that subjectivity plays when dealing with modern media at the hands of contemporary formats. With an abundance of media at hand, and the cyclical nature of appropriation, the artists consider the discordant nature that belies notions of both the ‘ideal’, and the ‘realised’.
