Created for the exhibition Lace - contemporary perspectives, the piece Disc-lace/Disc-grace is configured in two half circles, divided by the corner of a room. Both sections make reference to Renaissance lace patterns, one utilizing layered photocopied acetate circles and machine embroidery and the others lace pattern is industrially cut into the artist’s collection of vinyl records. This work reflects the artist’s tendency to reinvent traditional patterns by developing processes that are intended to blur disciplinary boundaries and challenge conventions and hierarchies of practice.

Tapebox

Social Satan by SCULPTURE (Sound and Vision Conglomerate)

Sculpture’s animation requires the use of a video camera to convey its magic, but as can be seen from their videos the effort is well worth it. Just the knowledge of the latent potential contained within the vinyl surface serves to enhance the experience of the music and the spinning disc, even to the naked eye, is a hypnotic spectacle.

Sculpture’s music, is a mixture of psychedelia, hauntology and turntablism, is a perfect match for their striking visuals. Other films by the duo can be viewed on Tapebox (they’re very much worth your time).
