Opening: Saturday, June 22, 5-9pm Exhibition dates: June 23, 12-6pm, June 27 – 28, 6-9pm; June 29, 12-6pm In his solo exhibition at Flux Factory, Alex Young presents EARTH∣MAN∣EARTH - a constellation of objects, ephemera and video resurrecting the spirit of integrated mega-scale world planning in an effort to postulate a new social structure for the early 21st Century.
Flux Factory opens its doors once again to techno-goofnofiles, gizmo-contraptionators, and sound-whambangers! We’re throwing them together in one room to make a huge music box. Think Victorian exactitude mixed with the complete breakdown of compositional standards. Think what would happen if Eric Satie spawned a child with Christian Marclay and then Jay-Z adopted it.
