Failing to Distinguish Between a Tractor Trailer and the Bright White Sky
NOME is pleased to announce that the gallery will relocate to Kreuzberg in April 2017, after two years of activity. The new space will open with a solo show by James Bridle.
In "Failing to Distinguish Between a Tractor Trailer and the Bright White Sky", James Bridle (b. 1980, UK) explores contemporary technologies of prediction and automation as they settle into our everyday lives. Taking as its central subject the self-driving car, the works in the exhibition test the limits of human knowing and machine perception, strategize modes of resistance to algorithmic regimes, and devise new myths and poetic possibilities for an age of computation.
James Bridle's installations and works have been commissioned by The Photographers’ Gallery, London; the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; FACT, Liverpool; and MU Eindhoven. Bridle’s artworks have been shown at major international institutions including the Barbican and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; LABoral, Gijon; ZKM Karlsruhe, National Arts Center, Tokyo.
