Yara El-Sherbini’s playful interdisciplinary practice uses humour and popular culture references to question social and political systems of power and influence.
At the heart of the exhibition will be the new interactive artwork The Current Situation commissioned by New Art Exchange, a buzz-wire game in the form of a world map. Visitors to the gallery will be invited to navigate around global borders with a hand held device, attempting to avoid activating an electric charge. Some territories are more difficult to navigate than others, examining notions around the establishment of borders, the division of land and expansion of empires.
