@ Banner Repeater @ 6pm-9pm

or-bits.com presents UN-PUBLISH: OUTSOURCED at Banner Repeater with Tara Kelton, 14 September – 13 October 2013, PV 13 September 2013, 6pm to 9pm (coinciding with the Artists Books Weekend) and Prayas Abhinav of Museum of Vestigial Desire, 19 October – 17 October 2013, PV 18 October 2013, 6pm to 9pm

OUTSOURCED is a two-part exhibition project organised for Banner Repeater’s serial publication UN-PUBLISH.

Through presenting two consecutive solo projects by graphic designer/artist Tara Kelton and co-director of Museum of Vestigial Desire, Prayas Abhinav, UN-PUBLISH: OUTSOURCED explores the notion of outsourcing in its relationship with the users’ cultures and logics emerging from communicating through web-based services and online platforms.

Contributing to Banner Repeater’s: UN-PUBLISH serial publication, and in conjunction with the multiple modes of dissemination of artworks that Banner Repeater offers, such as free distribution of artists publications from the reading room and public space of Platform 1 at Hackney Downs rail station in London, Kelton and Abhinav have developed two new bodies of work to be experienced from different locations: at Banner Repeater project space, in the UN-PUBLISH publication printed on paper 2.04 and 2.05 and at or-bits.com.

Part one of the project will feature:

<< In her film review of The Social Network (David Fincher, 2010), Zadie Smith despises Facebook’s normalcy as defined by its autistic computer-nerd founders. “Maybe the whole internet simply becomes like Facebook: falsely jolly, fake-friendly, self-promoting, sickly disingenuous.” Smith asks if we shouldn’t struggle against this pacification. “We were going to live online. It was going to be extraordinary. Yet, what kind of living is this? Step back from your Facebook Wall for a moment: Doesn’t it, suddenly, look a little ridiculous? ‘Your’ life in ‘this’ format?
Geert Lovink, Networks without a cause, 2011 Cambridge: Polity Press; p.41>>

Your new art books, fresh from The London Art Book Fair at the Whitechapel Gallery, await you. For the duration of the fair, artist Andreas Schmidt will offer four busy trans-atlantic book collectors one hour each to browse the tables with him via Skype. Save time, hotel and travel costs, avoid jet-lag and enrich your collection for only $200 per session. Spend some fun time with Schmidt as he walks you around the fair via Skype or direct him to specific tables at the fair and talk to other participating artists and publishers. Browse the latest artist books via the comfort of your screen and enrich your collection without the usual hassle. You will walk away not only with great finds, but you will also receive a personalized, signed certificate by the artist.
