Hannah Sawtell: Osculator

Working collaboratively for the first time at Bloomberg SPACE, the ICA and Bloomberg are pleased to announce two specially commissioned exhibitions by Hannah Sawtell, OSCULATOR at the ICA, and VENDOR at Bloomberg SPACE. Each venue will feature a site-specific commission, linking the two spaces. These exhibitions mark Sawtell’s first solo projects in the UK and will feature installations and a video work.

Both exhibitions employ material developed from Sawtell's experience of the Bloomberg office space during her current residency. Over the next few months the artist will compile material from the digital realm, sourcing images from the internet and live screen-shots of news footage on office monitors. Sawtell will develop a visual inventory of ‘contemporary material’ or ‘surfaces’, which will explore the boundaries of image production and consider the culture of over-proliferation.

The artist’s parallel semi-archival projects will investigate the politics of seduction as well as the idea of the ‘market’ through spatial and visual devices. By categorising and recording certain images, the artist reveals new relationships between objects and creates playful but critical dialectical encounters.

Sawtell’s diverse practice utilises a variety of mediums and processes. Images, textures, skins and surfaces are sourced from the internet and the global landscape of contemporary matter. These tools are reconstructed and redeployed as physical interventions or installations that focus attention on the various qualitative differences in images, objects and sound.

Operating as ‘real-time’ collages, Sawtell’s video and image-based works reconstruct contemporary media as fragmentary documents that collide visual tones with digital noise. By utilising generic editing programmes to cut digital information and formats, Sawtell initiates a process that designates the computer and its screen as a lens.

Her work contemplates the parallel physical and virtual dimensions of surplus capital and cybernetic tensions of today’s fast access imagery and information. Sawtell’s careful compositions exemplify new technologies of excess, access and psychic conflict; contemporary surplus production and accumulation.
