Levez Vos Skinny Fists Comme Antennas To Heaven

Alex Hetherington
October 16th, 2010 - October 31st, 2010

Levez Vos Skinny Fists Comme Antennas to Heaven is a solo show featuring a body of new experimental sculptural  work by Alex Hetherington formed as a result of a dramatic treatment or scripted scenario based on the idea of the German artist Isa Genzken listening to the Canadian band Godspeed! You Black Emperor  and devising works formed from her response to these audio works.  The title of the show comes from a ‘failed’ or alternative title to the band’s 2000 double album release.

The show deploys  Godspeed’s heavy use of sampled  and taped voices  and references to Genzken’s abrasive and  haphazard use of materials as the cue for the manufacture of a series of objects rendered in vinyl, glass, metal, mirrors, bagpipes, windscreens, collaged photographs, destroyed Apple Mac laptop computers and embossed leather. The show will also include three new A2 black and white editions. In unison these works hope to imply or suggest the ‘live’ or ‘performative’ and a ‘dialogue’ surrounding themes of identity theft, influence, Appropriation or Postproduction tactics.

A performance ‘Linda Levez Vos Elfriede Skinny Rosemarie Fists Jelinek Comme Antennas Trockel to Fratianne Heaven’ was presented on the final night of the exhibition.
