Press Preview on Tuesday 25th July, 6-9pm
Serpentine Arts Technologies and Outernet Arts launch an innovative partnership, unveiling a digital artwork by Brazilian artist Gabriel Massan that simulates and explores the precarious conditions of life in the global present.
Continuity Flaws: The Loophole will be presented at Outernet’s flagship venue, The Now Building, renowned for its impressive 23,000 square feet of wrap-around 16K screens. The collaboration aims to inspire and engage a wide-ranging general public with free and accessible admission in the heart of London, in a venue currently poised to secure its position as the leading attraction in the UK.
The project mirrors Third World: The Bottom Dimension presented at Serpentine North from 23 June to 22 October 2023. The project is conceptualised by Brazilian artist Gabriel Massan in collaboration with invited interdisciplinary artists Castiel Vitorino Brasileiro, Novíssimo Edgar, and vocalist and music producer LYZZA.
Third World: The Bottom Dimension emerges from Massan’s interest in technological, social and economic decentralisation and includes participatory digital tokens powered by Tezos. This exhibition extends the ideas that have driven the creation and development of the mirroring video game. It offers audiences an opportunity to play the game in a communal setting around site-specific set design, sculptures, sound and films.
