Quake II

Marian Tubbs & André Piguet

November 2014

Curated by Holly Childs
Opening: Friday November 28th 6-9pm

This show has been conceived as a non-linear curve against Holly Childs’ upcoming book Danklands, to be published by Arcadia Missa in December 2014.

Show runs until 12th December (Gallery then closed for Christmas and New Year break)

In fact, much of the book may be the objects in the space

Dredge & resurface site sample:
1 × swamp beast
1 × mushroom
N × discarded metals and plastics
If something else comes up we can scrap it
But within the context of “(most of their suggested names were already taken), so they decided to use the working title”

Fiji™ bottle filled with turps, or meth
Holographic tape, holographic circles
Weed species out the FireWire
Small amounts of gallium so I know it’s real
There may be other things
“I try to be non–”
Intel inside

If you come across a stray ogre sneaking, pull out your xXx then run toward the ogre, hit it once (or twice if you can time properly), then run forward again and repeat

&
Feminist repurpose video #gamergate subversion shit
Xmuddy_the_signifiersX
“I like an exhibition that reads as a first person shooter”

Sunlight × This way up × God mode
xXx hanging in the window, hauled from the ground
The Secret stored in wear and tear
Non-playable character holds the truth

Sequels are interesting because they have that rep of being shit

I guess we’ll just have to follow the logic of the text
