At what point does critique become collusion? Does the visualization of a network, a corporate ideology, or an advertising slogan assimilate the viewer into its logic? Critical and complicit by turns, Simon Denny works with academics, corporate entities, and re-found institutions, as well as with artists then and now. His installations archive, subsume and re-visualize their structures and methodologies. Pablo Larios explores how the Berlin-based, New Zealand-born artist reformulates questions of form and representation in his material excavations of current paranoia and progress.
