Kris Lock, “Exegesis for the Modern Detoxer”
PV: Thursday 8th June, 6-9pm.
Exhibition Open 9th-23rd June by appointment only.
Maxilla Space is proud to host the work of recent Camberwell College of Art graduate, Kris Lock, whose work ruminates on distortions of potential realities, mixing/conflicting narratives, and the ability of objects/materials/matter to act as thresholds into alternative points of existence.
Concerned with speculative futures and internal fictions, ‘Modern Detoxer’ beholds the earth speaking through words again. Clay mask therapies become embroiled with ancestry and meditation becomes an archival access point. Geologies are sacrificially formed in order to view the erosion of bits and the interplay between silicon and silicate. Questions of preserving and archiving are re-narrated through our proximities to earth, technology and mnemonics. An examination of modern conditions, and fascinations with the external, slips through porous surface into sediments and echo-locations. An archaeology of memory uncovered through soft movement.
P V – Thursday 23rd of March, 6 pm -9 pm
Friday 24th – Sunday 26th of March, 12 noon – 5 pm

At the moment of each equinox the Earth’s axis is perpendicular to the Sun’s rays. On any other day of the year, either the Northern Hemisphere or the Southern Hemisphere is increasingly closer to the sun. The angle of the earth’s axis is what gives us our seasons, it is what brings about change.
Ana Carolina Rodrigues, Christopher Taylor and Krister Klassman are proud to present a new four-part annual project Seasons, at Maxilla Space.
Seasons will launch with a weekend long exhibition opening on Thursday the 23rd of March. The week when the sun crosses the celestial equator, when day and night are of equal length. This marks the arrival of spring and is an occasion to celebrate.
