'The Grid System' A Regime.


Curated by Mark Mangion

19 August → 26 September 2010
Malta Contemporary Art, Valletta

For this 2-person exhibition, British artists Jess Flood-Paddock and Spatacus Chetwynd propose a collaboration questioning the benefits of parameters, routines and regulation to creativity, and researching a general curiosity about how things are made creating a friendly, accessible but intensely interesting program researching art collectives, alternative energy, access to information. Through a series of screenings, talks, performances, workshops and collaborations, the two artists seek a cultural journey of discovery, recreation and collaboration resulting in an open ended presentation based on their research.
