thickear, Sound Art Collective, Thursday 6th of March
When: Thursday 6th of March 2014, 7.30pm
Where: Troyganic, 132 Kingsland Road, London
thickear is an artists’ collective comprising Geoff Howse, Jack James, Kevin Logan, and Tadeo Sendon, who explore contemporary themes through conceptual art and performance.
Originally interested in working within the medium of sound, thickear have expanded their practice to include visual art and performance. Their recent work has been concerned with the ethics of data collection and exchange, including the epic dystopian performance/installation Ministry of Measurement, a major feature of the Barbican Centre’s ‘Hack the Barbican’ season in 2013, and later reconceived as a small, approachable data exchange stand at the ICT and Art Connect conference in Lithuania.
Guiding us through their journey from Sound Art to new interdisciplinary fields, the collective will introduce the themes that will conform their next project Pink Sheet Method, which will be presented this spring at Future Everything (Manchester), ODI (London) and Lighthouse (Brighton).
