Mike Cooter & The Hex
Nov 23rd - Dec 21st 2008
Preview Saturday 22nd Nov 6-8pm
Marking the final exhibition of 2008 in the new gallery space, Moot are pleased to invite London based project The Hex to stage an ambitious off-site show.
The Hex combines the efforts of artists Jason Dungan (USA) and Maria Zahle (DK), who commission artists to create new work that is temporarily installed in their apartment on the Pembury Estate, Hackney. Exhibitions are open to the public and lived amongst by Dungan and Zahle.
Using the context of their London apartment/exhibition space as a starting point, The Hex will be creating objects and interventions within the Moot space as a means of addressing the idea of an exhibition space within an exhibition space. To extend this idea further The Hex have invited London based artist Mike Cooter to make new work within the confines of their show.
Cooter’s mixed media installations often involve the presentation of artefacts and correspondence that relate to his epistemological investigations in relation to film & cinema, forensic science and human behaviour. For Production Still Cooter will be creating a body of new sculpture referencing a prop made for the film Cat People (Jacques Tourneur, 1942) and fragments from the outdoor sculptures at the estate of the late and self titled ‘Lord’ Timothy Dexter.
Cooter is represented by ZINGERpresents, Amsterdam, NL, and has recently shown in the Nought to Sixty programme at the ICA, London, UK; The Arts Gallery, London, UK (2008); The Showroom, London, UK (2007); ZINGERpresents (2007); Montanaberlin, Berlin, DE (2007).
Previous projects hosted by The Hex include; Vanessa Billy with Alex Heim and Carl June; Sam Porritt with Tom Chamberlain; Charlotte Thrane with Anthea Hamilton; Guy Rusha, and The Hex: A Retrospective at Limoncello, London, in July 2008.
