‘Staging Disorder’ Multi media installation
Metro is delighted to have produced and installed large-scale vinyl prints for ‘Staging Disorder’ an exhibition of photography, sound and moving image at the University of the Arts, London.
The exhibition includes selected images from seven photographic series that were made independently of each other in the first decade of the new millennium and explore the contemporary representation of the real in relation to photography, architecture and modern conflict.
Curated by Christopher Stewart and Esther Teichmann the exhibition includes Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin’s ‘Chicago’, Geissler/Sann’s ‘personal kill’, Claudio Hils’ ‘Red Land Blue Land’, An-My Lê’s ’29 Palms’, Richard Mosse’s ‘Airside’, Sarah Pickering’s ‘Public Order’ and Christopher Stewart’s ‘Kill House. Their work poses questions about the nature of truth as it manifests itself in current photographic practice
Within their images these artists portray mock domestic rooms, aircraft, houses, streets and whole fake towns designed as military and civilian architectural simulations and in preparation for real and imagined future conflicts across the globe.
The concept of staging disorder in relationship to the images collected here looks not to how the photographers have staged disordered reality themselves, but rather to how these artists have recognised and responded to a phenomenon of staging that already exists in the world.
Throughout the LCC Galleries the themes in Staging Disorder are extended by artists from the University of the Art’s Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice (CRiSAP) whos work includes sound, installation, and written texts.
