It’s Our Playground: Artificial Sensibility


We are delighted to begin our 2017/18 exhibition season with a solo exhibition of new work by Paris-based artist duo It’s Our Playground (IOP), comprised of Camille Le Houezec and Jocelyn Villemont.

Artificial Sensibility continues the duo’s ongoing reflection on artificial intelligence – when technology mimics human cognitive behaviour. Artificial Sensibility reveals a hybrid learning process of automated principles of recognition and basic human methods of education.

Presented via a series of intuitively formed constructs of blended colours, warped shapes and images of natural elements, misunderstanding and ambiguity gives rise to free-form poetic response.

As their core practice, IOP have curated many exhibitions of artists’ work. Artificial Sensibility will be an opportunity to widen their scope of production by collaborating closely with other types of makers, including technical and artisan practitioners with specific savoir-faire.

Artificial Sensibility follows Reconstructive Memory Galerie Valentin, Paris, 2016; Mental Matter, Les Bains-Douches, Alençon, 2016; Deep Screen, Parc Saint-Léger, Pougues-les-Eaux, 2015; and Screen Play, SWG3 Gallery, Glasgow, 2014. It is part of an ongoing exploration into methods of producing, installing, apprehending and distributing an exhibition in physical spaces, online, and in the hard drive of our brains.
