“Portikus presents the work of late British conceptual artist John Latham (1921-2006) and a new work by artist and professor of art Neal White. By facilitating a dialogue between these two practices, the show decodes Latham’s expansive and hugely complex oeuvre and the conceptual legacy of art in relation to the ‘event’ as a structural entity.“

Undertaken with Portikus in conjunction with Stadehlschule, Latham Foundation and Flattimehouse, London.

For more information and DVD see NOIT 2, edited by Lisa le Feuvre.

Curated by Sophie Von Olfers for Portikus. With thanks to Claudia Famulok, Jose Segebre, Nick, Reece, Amy, Andrew, Stewart, Dana and Christian.

Dislocated Data Palm (2014) 

Consisting of a 14 metre high data or cell tower camouflaged as a plam tree. The installation of the object was in two parts; 5.5 metres suspended inside and 8.5 metres placed outside, within view from the rear window of the gallery and set against the backdrop of the islands woodland flora and fauna.

During this project, further research was conducted locally into Frankfurts advanced data landscape.

Fieldwork and live video streams connected sites ranging from the NSA's European Cryptology Dagger Complex just outide Frankfurt, to the Quantum Trading facilities of the Frankfurst stock exchange and Europes largest financial trading data hubs. Broadcast back though the network, viewers were able to connect to these sites from home, by-passing the gallery, or formal video presentation.

A project developed with Office of Experiments and Field Broadcast, London.
