Tischlerwood and Alex Forsey
In the 21st century we have all become accustomed to using Descartes’ grid as a signifier of our ‘real’ location. How will drones and digital technologies affect the way we dream, as city dwellers? Of course, Descartes’ invention is as alienating as it is useful, as there can never be a full, or satisfactory, answer to the question, Where Am I ? The title,
YOU ARE NOT HERE alludes to the paradox of arrows on maps that insist: “You are here”. In this first collaborative work, visual artist, Alma Tischlerwood and film-maker, Alex Forsey investigate the notion of mapping and the evolving language of urban space by merging film projection with performative aspects of painting.
About the Artists:
Alma Tischlerwood is a German artist living and working in London. Her practise is abstract painting using multi media as well as working in close collaboration with the artist collective: Foreign Investment, co-founded in 96. Her work has been shown in solo shows in London, New York, Seoul and in Europe. Recent installations focus on the presentation of colour and patterns, characterised with a witty irony, suggesting a philosophical world in which materiality and language invoke one another.
Alex Forsey is a London based film-maker and photographer currently working on projects in New York, Taiwan, Greece and Sweden. He obtained his drone license in 2016 in order to develop his skills of documentary filmmaking. Recent projects include the documentary shorts, I-D meets: Girl Skaters.
