The Black Mariah presents
DIFFERENCE ENGINE: Manifestation II
Jamming is a form of error-detection
Difference Engine draws together the intermingling and ongoing explorations of artists Mark Cullen, Gillian Lawler, Wendy Judge, Jessica Foley & Gordon Cheung.
Influenced by systems & technologies of time, space & economy, each artist’s work voices a subjective philosophy, informed by personal experience, observation & interest, forking through the present into the future & the past, challenging introverted assumptions of nostalgia, utopia & dystopia, and promoting a retro-sensitivity that aims to engage it’s audience in probing actual & imagined experience; cause & effect; scientific & social experiment and discovery and their factual, fictive or hypothetical representations over time.
Presenting the second episode in an emerging series of exhibitions, DIFFERENCE ENGINE: Manifestation II opens on June 9th at 7.30pm and runs until it’s Closing Day Special on Saturday June 26th in a Classic Double Bill Matinee featuring The Bloody Ends vs. Kronos.
DIFFERENCE ENGINE: Manifestation II is an installation of disparate & individual works that undeniably riff off each other, opening up a space wherein the audience can begin to generate connections and meanings that are unique to themselves, engaging in a kind of immersive & active storytelling… becoming players, or tourists within the zone of exhibition, in an encounter with the limits of their own imagination.
