West London Projects

Previously Exhibited


It can start whenever you want

It Can Start Whenever You Want deals with the transition and potentiality of materials. The artists in the show use varied modes of representation and action. They generate performativity and flux through their specific use of materials that can be both unsubstantial yet solid, in motion but still, analogue and digital. The different states of aggregation pervade each other creating an open system held up by its constant instability.

Christian Frosi continues his practice of creating objects inspired by a scientific and often anthropological approach. Combining sand with visually basic elements like boxes and wheels, Frosi has created two new installations for westlondonprojects. Yet, due to the fluidic nature of sand as a granular material New Title HHHHHHH Orville & Wilbur and New Title Untitled, stay invisibly in motion, and uncontrollable generate a unpredictable variety of possibilities.

Simultaneously projecting three 16 mm films using red, green and black ‘leaders’ of film reels inscribed with the last words of prisoners on death row culled from the internet and written directly onto the celluloid, Wolfgang Plöger’s work Last Statements not only explores the relation of text and image as well as analogue and digital modes but defines space by colour, movement and sound. 

For the opening of the exhibition, Jimmy Robert will perform Object/My Affection, in a specially constructed corridor, using his body as a material as well as a screen for the projection of an image. By positioning the ephemeral performative movement as a backdrop for projected representation, Robert utilises the mutability of kinetics and gesture to destabilise the stillness of memory and representation.
