SPEED brings together a suite of new films by James Richards and Leslie Thornton alongside an exhibition of works by Horst Ademeit, Adelhyd van Bender, Bruce Conner, Emily Feather, Terence McCormack, Jeff Preiss and Jens Thornton. It is a presentation and a holding environment about rays, chemical reactions and molecules – as well as a certain low fi paranoia psychedelic/destructive tendencies that these can invoke. As a show, SPEED incites a specific psychic and temporal state, a rush of interconnectedness combined with a sense of ecological dread and anxiety.
Commissioned by Künstlerhaus Stuttgart and Malmö Konsthall.
SPEED 2 takes place at Malmö Konsthall, 15 March – 26 May 2019.
Realised with the generous support of Pedro Barbosa
