Graund Gallery, Moscow
The title of the exhibition Spatial Errors, which will take place at GROUND Peschanaya gallery, is connected to the relatively new trend in art — glitch, what means "technical error". This trend could be explained by looking at the electronic music of the 1990-s, when mistakes in the form of noises, overlays and different types of distortions started to be involved in music and later in contemporary art.
The term itself was coined by the first American astronaut John Glenn to describe communication problems during orbital space flight. "The indignation caused by the imposition of signal or distortion." Being in an era riddled with virtual and spatial networks, it has become natural and necessary for us to notice failures and errors that are of digital origin. The amount of experiments in aestheticization of digital mistakes in contemporary art is not only engaged by the video, music and digital images, but also with the materialization of glitch-art. Similarly, to the virtual, our own reality gradually takes the form of a collage, being completed and modified, causing malfunctions and defects, which in their turn encouraged to study and convert daily failure of machinery in the usual form of painting, drawing, photography or video art.
The exhibition Spatial Errors will present works of fourteen young artists who attempt to fix, or create errors of this type.
The exhibition will be held as part of the festival of young art 20–30.
