Background

The art ] iculating history projects are collaborative, context driven, archive intervening, site specific creative projects by visual artists Jonathan Alibone and Alexander Small.

Statement

Jonathan Alibone
My art is an interrogation of western culture's beliefs and values, and an exploration of the tension between faith and doubt, physical desire and spiritual longing.  It can be read as an articulation of the uncertainty and irreconcilable antagonisms inherent in our existence.

By appropriating images and text from film, books, magazines and pornography, I am able to co-opt their cultural and symbolic associations so that they become ambivalent signifiers of moral emptiness, skepticism, and self-disgust.  The viewer is no longer a passive consumer but a voyeur and participant, implicated in a nihilistic culture's obsessions, perversions, and hunger for meaning.

Alexander Small
My work is a drawing based practice attempting to draw links between emotional, spiritual resonance and the physical resonance of sound. I'm particularly interested in visual resonance and audial resonance and v isualising (materially) sound that has (attributed) meaning (psycho - acoustics). By using similarly meaningful materials that are essential elements to life I hope to bypass logical and analytical forms of consciousness and encourage the viewer to bring a communal, common or consensual meaning to the work. The pieces generally take the form of sculpture using sound to generate resonant harmonics which manifest visually in various materials.
