‘Beyond Duality’ is a two-person show of the work of artists Ismail Erbil and Patrick Michalopoulos at Schwartz Gallery, the artist-curators and founders of the space. Delving intofacets of their collaborative as well as their individual practices the artists will focus on the creation of an expansive site-specific installation intertwining their respective approaches encompassing object and image-making, costume and performance art and video and installation. Overlapping categories of making and testing the boundaries of authorship in the context of collaboration BEYOND DUALITY advances ideas of shared communication and ownership to question idealised notions of objects, spaces and their perceived boundaries.
Taking the form of site specific installations Ismail Erbil’s new works for Beyond Duality investigate cycles of actions though a layering of objects and performative narratives that draw the viewer into environments or zones of experience. Working with reflective, transparent and opaque materials Erbil wraps, veils and conceals objects and surfaces to reconfigure representational devices. Sculptural objects and collages shift and transform evolving along a spectrum of light, a central theme of these works. Concealing the identity of objects in alternating shrouds of light and darkness the artist considers the nature of materiality and amplifies and distorts the experience of objects as vehicles of communication.
Patrick Michalopoulos presents a series of new works for ‘Beyond Duality’ that inhabit a space somewhere between object, photography, collage and performance. Alternating modes of representation leave the viewer to decide where images and objects begin and end questioning the apparatus of representation. Inverting hierarchies and functions of materials reflects the artist’s interest in the articulation of architectural spaces that carry with them psychological structures of human interaction. These scaled-down structures operate on a level akin to that of architectural models yet fall outside their strict parameters alluding to spaces of disembodiment, dislocation and intercepted communications.

Random Orange is an International Open Call exhibition organised by Ice Tuxedo. Artists are asked to apply with work that respond to an extract taken from ‘The Science in Science Fiction’ ed. Peter Nicholls, 1982, p. 91.
To apply for this exhibition opportunity artists must follow the guidelines and pay £20 per application. The exhibition is open to artists working across all media. Work does not have a size restriction:
_____________________________
EXTRACT:
‘There are various intriguing science fiction notions concerning time that can only call upon very distant support from science.  A notable example is A.E. van Vogt’s novel The Weapon Shops of Isher, in which a man throws alternately, as if on a seesaw, increasingly distant past and futures, accumulates so much energy (for surely time travel requires energy) that when he finally explodes in the distant past, it is the intensity of this release of energy that catalyses the creation of the Sun and the planets.  This is one of the ultimate time paradoxes.  More soberly, Ian Watson’s story “The Very Slow Time Machine’ tells of a future time traveller in a machine which, before it is projected even further into the future, must (like a catapult) first be very slowly pulled back into the past.  To battled present-day observers he seems to be experiencing normal duration, but in reverse.  There is a remote sense in which physics supports the relationship between time and energy that these stories rather vaguely suggest.  The initial energy of the Big Bang that gave birth to our universe is thought to be directly connected to the nature of time in the universe.
We do not know exactly how much energy this was, but we do know that the greater the initial energy, the longer time itself will last before the universe reaches its hear-death or collapses back into a monobloc.’
