Culture Laboratory

Untitled_Panorama1 copy2

Culture Laboratory Collective (est. 2009) comprises a diverse group of artists working loosely around the question of social cohesion within the context of aesthetic fragmentation. While focusing collectively on a synthetically established social identity the work presented paradoxically strives to break free of group-think aesthetics in favor of the individual voice, the point of dissonance opposing the attempt at collaborative cohesion. Retaining a focus on the object, Culture Laboratory Collective operates as an ongoing investigation in media interchangeability and aesthetic fluidity.
