Victor Lim Seaward & Meredith Sellers - The Future Leaks Out

Tue-Sat: 10-6pm

Workplace is pleased to present The Future Leaks Out, a two person exhibition featuring new and recent work by London based artist Victor Lim Seaward and Philadelphia based artist Meredith Sellers.

The exhibition’s title is drawn from William S. Burroughs’ aphoristic quote about his developments of the Dadaist Cut-up technique: ‘When you cut into the present the future leaks out’. The works in the exhibition utilise isolation, mediation and combinations of images and objects to offer a metaphorical incision into the present moment and evince underlying anxieties of the future.

The Future Leaks Out brings together Seller’s critical examination of image-making in a post-digital age and Seaward’s ongoing exploration of the possibilities associated with ceaseless technological advancement. Their works collectively draw attention to ever- evolving contemporary social and cultural discourses. They presciently hint at the profound anxiety stemming from the continuously expanding realm of technology and, echoing Burroughs prophetic declaration, its potential to destabilise and topple closely guarded historical and cultural foundations.
