Exhibition:

"Bon Voyage"
Alice Mathieu, Craig Burgess, Madé Spencer-Castle


Opening: Wednesday 22 February, 6-8pm
Dates: 22 February-10 March 2012

In ‘Bon Voyage’ Alice Mathieu, Craig Burgess and Madé Spencer-Castle use a satellite image from Google Earth as a point of departure. On this map, A has a specific location but denotes a non-place. The exhibition is an encounter with A, the salvaged remnant of this impossible round-trip. ‘Bon Voyage’ is what a postcard is to a holiday; it activates the potential of A for the audience. In engaging with place and non-place simultaneously, the image of A sets up the ambiguous relationship between the absolute and the relative, and the ideal and real. Likewise it references how utopia (incidentally, from οὐ”not” and τόπος “place”) exists in relation to failure, and how the physical and temporal nature of the exhibition inversely talks of a longing to transcend such constraints.
