Reactor: Here, the Gold Ones meet

Please note, dates for this exhibition are subject to lockdown restrictions.


Can you hear me?

Yes we can hear you quite clearly now.

It’s good to speak with you again.

What is it like there?

Here, there are endlessly repeating cosmic planes.

Visions of the past and future are accessible.

That’s how we remember it anyway.

So, we’re projecting now.

You’ll need to read between the lines.

Piece together the glimpses. The pieces.

You’re about to arrive.



The Gold Ones have existed across time, and now reside in the Cosmic Care Home (CCH). On this particular cosmic plane they are cut off from a wider community, and lead a bureaucratically controlled existence, cared for by elusive Helping Hands. What can be seen here, is an increasingly incessant transmission from within the Home. As the Gold Ones move through cycles of activity – rest, care, affirmation, breakfast, exercise, games, and treatment – we get to know each of them, their relations and woo-woo beliefs.

This performance-fiction is an evolving narrative, using video, performance, games and installation to explore an imagined present-future-past inhabited by characters collectively known as the Gold Ones. When Max Gold’s first video broadcast came through, he designated himself as ‘one of the Gold Ones’. An undetermined cohort of higher spiritual beings, or so they claim. After tracking Max for a period, we began to watch them intensely, to uncover them one by one. Initially remaining in the back spaces of the CCH, looking through the transparent walls, or listening in on voices from the other side. Here now, if and when you’re ready, you can join the Gold Ones in the main gathering room.
