Abstract or Description:

Through film, music, images, comics, artefacts and performance, the UK-based group Plastique Fantastique present Mars Year Zero, a sci-fi fiction addressing precarious ecologies, nascent tech-life, animals that speak, and a friends’ reunion in which human and non-human natures meet. This timely exhibition weaves current political, environmental and space-exploratory narratives, at a time when space has become the horizon for not just scientists and governments but business and elites.

Plastique Fantastique are David Burrows, Vanessa Page, Alex Marzeta and Simon O’Sullivan, a collective of artists, musicians and philosophers who sometimes swell and grow into new configurations with their expansive kin, often appearing en masse in video works and the collective’s notorious carnivalesque live performances.

David, Vanessa and Alex have produced an installation featuring a new video work made by the group, depicting the adventures of CIMON and its tech-kin. The exhibition also features a number of spells, avatars and Familiars including ‘Spacehex’, consisting of a ribbon rocket and platform covered in sigils.
