APOPHATIC Pareidolia is a condition... Mike Chavez-Dawson (& Co.)

31 July 2010 - 28 August 2010

PREVIEW EVENING: FRIDAY, 30 July, 6.30-8.30 pm in association with Deptford Last Fridays, galleries in Deptford open until 8.30 pm, with afterparty at the Old Police Station.

APOPHATIC PEREIDOLIA is a condition… features two new works ‘Hypotyposis’ and ‘The Obvious Manifesto, [The Question Hangs]’ by Mike Chavez-Dawson, both continues the artists interest in creating multi-layered ‘performative’ works that explore the slippage between the artists intention and the audiences perception; via a complex web of narratives, art history & theory, social and psychoanalytical reference points.

Here he’s utilised documentation from two bodies of ‘performative’ works to create a series of laser etchings that sit between drawing, print, sculpture and performance. Chavez-Dawson also continues to reconcile ‘authorship’ boundaries by negotiating and revealing collaborative components to diffuse an individual agency.
