Clare Strand & Steffie Klenz - A Boring Jumper and an Over Complicated Top
The exhibition is result of a year-long conversation between Klenz and Strand. Their words input and gobbled up by a number of web programmes - those that can detect, change, mutate, interpret and output reorganised data. From software designed to identify profanity or collate punctuation to programmes that examine percentages of nouns, verbs and adjectives used in a given text.
The video work offers yet another version of the discussion, which explores the essence of communication; Manet's and Charles Ephrussi's exchange over a bunch of asparagus and the tribulations of Rattlesnake Kate, amongst a plethora of other weird and wonderful events that Klenz and Strand were minded to toss into the conversation. Swinging from the sublime to the ridiculous and back again.
